High-profile Qld solicitor Tim Meehan is due to be sentenced for fraud and other charges.

The solicitor who represented Daniel Morcombe's killer Brett Peter Cowan is due to be sentenced for fraud.

Tim Meehan has been in custody since pleading guilty last month in the Brisbane Supreme Court to aggravated fraud and eight counts of fraudulent falsification of records.

The charges related to the dishonest application of monies in excess of $30,000, belonging to Meehan's former employer Bosscher Lawyers, as well as the falsification of costs agreements and tax invoices.

Meehan surrendered his practising certificate shortly after Bosscher Lawyers notified the Queensland Law Society of his criminal behaviour.

He is due to be sentenced on Thursday by Justice Roslyn Atkinson, the same judge who oversaw Cowan's murder trial in 2014.
