Speaker Profile

John Robert Quigley was born in Perth in 1949, and educated at Aquinas College, Perth.

His early career, after leaving school at the end of Year 10, was far-removed from politics and the legal profession. He worked on sheep stations as a shearer, general roustabout and labourer, in the remote regions of the Murchison and Pilbara in Western Australia. He then pursued other careers including truck driving.


In his early 20s, John sought to further his education. This led him to the University of Western Australia where he graduated with a law degree.

After being an Articled Clerk with the firm Kott Wallace and Gunning, John was admitted as barrister and solicitor of the Supreme Court of Western Australia. He practised as a lawyer for 25 years mainly in criminal law.

On 10 February 2001, John was elected to the Parliament as the Member for Innaloo.

He has contested and won all subsequent WA Legislative Assembly elections and is currently the member for Butler. From April 2009 to March 2017, John was the Shadow Attorney General.

John was sworn in as the WA Attorney General on 16 March 2017.
