Joe Fahey | Solicitor

Joe graduated with a double degree in Arts/Law from the University of Queensland, which he attended on a full Gymnastics scholarship due to an administrative error. He lectures frequently to his children on a variety of subject and rarely listens to his staff about his choice of ties, even though they have exquisite taste.

He enjoys swimming, surfing and golf, but he probably should give up the latter and spend more time learning to cook or picking up his clothes off the floor. He became a football commentator after one of his clients was arrested mid-game and fancies himself as one of the leading bingo callers on the North Coast. He occasionally refers to himself in the third person as “Bingo Man” and has a shirt to prove it.
