OUR STORY 

Esposito Lawyers opened in April 2016 on the outskirts of the Cairns city centre by Principal Lawyer | Director Mel Esposito.  Mel has worked in the Cairns legal industry for over 15 years, which included 5 years working for national law firms.

The firm was originally opened and operated from Suite 5 of the Cairns Professional Centre.

After a period of two years, we moved downstairs to Suite 2 & 3 with Financial Horizons, while also visiting Townsville for appointments.
