WE HAVE A WINNER!!
Our Principal, Kym Briese, is a very proud supporter of Emerge. Here is a little something Emerge posted on their Facebook page that we wanted to share:
"Today we said a special Thankyou to a special lady Kym Briese.
Kym has been a part of our village from our very early days, ordering catering, coffees, donating every month from her team at Briese Lawyers - Toowoomba and recently donating a whopping $4800 to help us continue our work with young people after the COVID impact.
There is simply no way we could do what we do without her.
Thanks for being in our corner Kym."
BIGGEST MORNING TEA
Again this year our team supported the Biggest Morning Tea. Firstly a very special acknowledgement needs to be made to Carolyn Pohlner & Sonia Pocock from our client services team for spoiling us with the most beautiful & delicious morning tea for the Briese Lawyers team. Together, we raised over $500.00 of much-needed funds for life-saving cancer research, support services and prevention programs.
Did you know that 1 in 2 people in Australia will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 85. But there is good news. Thanks to research into new treatments, the overall cancer survival rate has gone up from 49% in the 1980s to 69% today.
If you want to have a look at our fundraising efforts, here is the link to our Fundraising page.
Hello OPERATION: DATE LOAF!
As the world goes mad stripping our shelves of toilet paper, we are concerned that our vulnerable senior community will not be able to source supplies as they can’t trek all over town in search of the prized possession during their fortnightly shop with a carer. So what are we doing about it?
We’re taking date loaf to them!!!
Thanks to Cleaning Essentials On The Run, we have purchased a pallet of toilet paper and called upon the wonderful army of volunteers at Meals on Wheels St Stephens Toowoomba to distribute them for us!!! So now our beautiful seniors can get a three course meal and a side of Date Loaf 😉 to help them out.
#community It’s what we do!
WOOHOO! IT'S DELIVERY WEEK!
Thanks to some very generous sponsors from our Facebook page we have 175 cartons of Spring and Grove flavoured mineral waters donated. That’s 4,200 bottles heading to Stanthorpe this weekend!! Huge thanks to Spring and Grove for supplying your product at heavily discounted prices; and Granite Belt Water Relief who are doing a fabulous job with distribution.
And to our friends in and around Stanthorpe district, we hope you enjoy something a little bit special this Christmas season and hope Santa delivers drought breaking rain to Qld & NSW.

STANDING TALL & STANDING OUT IN LAW
Briese Lawyers received the 2019 Pineapple Award for Standing Tall & Standing Out in law, online and in the community. We are so proud to be recognised for our community work as it is so close to our heart and at the core of who we are at BL.
Thank you so much to Louise and the fabulous team at Pineapple Marketing & Promotions.
OUR CONVEYANCING TEAM DID IT!!
Our Team had 85 Contracts for the month of September, which means Briese Lawyers have sponsored 4 full truck loads (or 88,000 litres) of water to the Granite Belt Water Relief to help the Granite Belt with their water crisis. A very big thank you goes out to everyone who helped us reach this goal!
SUPPORTING JEANS FOR GENES DAY
Did you know 1 in 20 children are affected by a genetic defect or disease???
We are proud to announce that we were rated top 3 family lawyers in Toowoomba for 2019 by Three Best Rated!

Briese Lawyers are going to take this on as a community project in the lead up to Christmas. If any family or friends would like to make a donation/contribute in any way, that would be awesome - especially those of you that may have access to product samples that we could use. Thank you!
Big thanks to all our wonderful clients and referrers and of course to the amazing Briese Lawyers team who each contributed to our win in the Heritage Bank Business Excellence Awards - Professional & Business: Legal division on Saturday night. Thanks also to Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce and the many sponsors who put together a fabulous "Breakfast at Tiffany's" event.
Congratulations to all the other division winners!
