Last year, it was reported that controversial Brisbane solicitor, Robert Hynes, assaulted his neighbour, who happens to be a barrister. The Hynes family house is now for sale. The house, in 18 Ormond Street, in Ascot, Brisbane, is in Hynes' wife's name. She purchased the house in 2009 for $2M. Hynes Lawyers went through a restructure in 2013, and not everyone was happy. Restructured and now Hynes Legal, this firm is well known for its aggressive body corporate and management rights practice.
