Campbell MacCallum

LLB (Hons), BASc

Principal

Campbell is a founding partner of MMA Lawyers and one of Queensland’s leading criminal defence lawyers.

Campbell’s passion and determination come from his desire to provide those who require legal assistance with the best care and representation available.

Campbell was educated at the prestigious Nudgee College from the age of twelve (12) where he was instilled with the discipline to achieve academic and sporting excellence. 

Campbell represented Queensland U19s and U21s in rugby and is a State and National Bodybuilding champion.

Campbell pursued a career in professional sports in the United Kingdom before returning to Australia and undertaking a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Science degrees at Griffith University in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast where he achieved Honours in Law.

Upon the completion of his university degrees, Campbell immediately commenced employment and began gaining valuable career experience as a Judge’s Associate in the District Court at Ipswich for Her Honour Judge Richards. During that time, Campbell assisted Her Honour through many criminal trials, sentences and various other criminal procedural applications. Campbell’s dedication and intense application to all areas of criminal law, coupled with the vast experience attained from working directly under a Judge, consolidates his reputation as one of Queensland’s leading criminal defence lawyers.

Campbell has represented high-profile sporting personalities in both criminal and disciplinary proceedings. Campbell successfully defends his clients’ criminal charges in jurisdictions throughout Australia for serious offences including murder, manslaughter and drug trafficking.

Initially admitted as a Barrister in 2002, Campbell is a strong solicitor advocate providing his clients with a trusted voice in the toughest of legal matters. A person charged with any criminal offence, even minor, can be confident that Campbell’s experience in court advocacy will ensure the best possible outcome.

Campbell is fearless in running matters to trial.

Antonious Abdelshahied

LLB, Grad Dip (LP), JP (Qual)

Principal

Antonious is a passionate advocate when it comes to all areas of family law and criminal defence. Antonious is also highly skilled and experienced at advising and representing clients facing civil applications and criminal charges arising from domestic and family violence. 

Antonious commenced his studies in law at James Cook University in Townsville and transferred to Queensland University of Technology from which he graduated in 2005. Antonious’ experience in Courts throughout Queensland in his early career together with meticulous preparation of client matters led to his appointment as a Principal of our firm in 2015, entailing the firm’s 2018 name change to Moloney MacCallum Abdelshahied Lawyers.

Antonious brings with him a wealth of experience in family law and a reputation as a powerful advocate for the rights and entitlements of all clients. Antonious has successfully defended his clients’ charges in many criminal jurisdictions for a variety of offences.

Very few legal practitioners have Antonious’ ability to represent clients in the extremely demanding areas of family, domestic violence and criminal law simultaneously. Unfortunately in today’s climate, many clients require representation in all three jurisdictions due to the complexities of family violence. Antonious’ legal representation in such sensitive and difficult matters will help you and your family navigate this difficult terrain.

Through private negotiations, or from recourse to the Courts, Antonious consistently achieves excellent outcomes for his clients. When he’s not preparing to represent his clients, Antonious is in hot demand as a presenter at legal seminars around the country.

Antonious’ ability to speak Arabic also assists clients when English is their second language.

If you are facing any family law issues (whether it involves drafting agreements or attendance at Court) or requiring criminal defence representation, you can be confident that Antonious Abdelshahied’s legal advocacy experience and complete knowledge of all matters relating to his various areas of legal practice, will ensure the best possible outcome for you and your family.
