Keegan Gill “did the right thing” and asked his father Matt to move his admission at the Banco Court sitting this week in Brisbane.

The Steindls law graduate, whose focus is commercial law, was one of two father-son connections at Monday’s 11am sitting, along with Rostron Carlyle Rojas (RCR) law clerk Cameron Kuskie.

Matt is the principal lawyer at MCG Legal on the Gold Coast and a former police officer, however Keegan’s interest in the law was sparked by the enjoyment he found doing legal studies at high school.

He then enrolled at Bond University and “found his feet there” and “next thing you know I’m being admitted”.

“I think it’s the right thing to do,” he said of choosing his father to be move his admission. “It was definitely a proud moment for myself as well. I know he enjoyed it.”

For Matt, it was a “very proud moment and a little surreal” seeing the second eldest of six children joining the legal profession.

“I watched him grow up and never thought for a second he was going to be a lawyer,” Matt said. “He’s his own person and it’s his journey. I didn’t influence him and he found his feet. It was a very proud moment.”

Peter Kuskie, Partner at RCR, said he was “immensely proud” to move his son Cameron’s admission “and have him join me in the profession”.

“I encouraged Cameron to embark on a career in the law,” Peter said, who is lucky enough to see his son at work, as Cameron is a member of the RCR personal injury team.

Cameron said: “My father has been an instrumental role model and source of support in my personal and professional life.

“He embodies the values and standards that I aspire to emulate in my career. It was largely due to his example that I chose to embark upon a career in the legal profession. I was immensely proud to have him move my admission.”  

And Cameron said the things he would remember the most about the milestone day were “the people who attended and congratulated me in the course of my admission”.

“My admission was the culmination of a considerable amount of effort and sacrifice, on behalf of myself, and even more so on behalf of my family and friends,” he said.


“I have been incredibly fortunate to have received the support of so many selfless and generous people. I was grateful to have shared this special occasion with the people who meant so much to me and without whom I would not have been where I was on that day.”
