Shannon Toto

Shannon is a Special Counsel in our Property Law Team.


I joined Murdoch Lawyers as Special Counsel in 2021 as part of the Crouch & Lyndon merger.

Prior to the merger, I previously worked in a top 10 national law firm, and national mortgage processing companies acting for banks, credit unions and other major financial institutions on a range of commercial, residential and business transactions. I was admitted to practice in Queensland in 2012, completing a Bachelor of Law, a Bachelor of Justice, and a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice at the Queensland University of Technology.

I started my legal career in general property and banking and finance work which lead into residential and commercial development and commercial and retail leasing for landlords and tenants alike.

I enjoy applying my technical and people skills to achieve the best outcome for my clients in a timely manner.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and hope to coach and mentor my son to be a future captain of the Wallabies (or Socceroos if my wife gets her way).
