MBA Lawyers was established by John McDonald in 1970 and is a long established well respected Gold Coast law firm which provides a range of legal services to its clients based on a philosophy of personal service and expertise. John commenced practice as a general practitioner but with the quick recognition of the Gold Coast being a promising area in which to invest, the firm took on a heavy emphasis in commercial and property law.

In 1979 Rob Balanda joined the firm and added new dimensions to the firm’s areas of practice which were extended to Personal Injury and Local Government. Over the last 35 years the firm has taken on more partners and practitioners and has gained expertise in many areas of legal practice including Asset Protection, Civil and Commercial Litigation, Estates, Business Sales, Trusts, Management Rights and Body Corporate Law.

The firm remains one of the longest and most established firms on the Gold Coast, and prides itself on its specialist areas of practice. The firm also contributes significantly to the local community by participating in various initiatives and supporting various community associations.
