A Brisbane criminal lawyer accused of ripping off legal aid has been slapped with a curfew and will be fitted with a tracker after allegedly breaching his bail conditions.

Queensland's Crime and Corruption Commission charged Adam Magill on Tuesday with four counts of breaching his bail after he allegedly contacted a crown witness and an accused co-offender.

It's alleged Magill had contact with or tried to contact two people he was banned from communicating with under the terms of his release on fraud and money laundering charges.

Those terms were extended during a Brisbane Magistrates Court hearing on Thursday.

He must now also abide by a 10pm to 5am curfew unless accompanied by his spouse or children and wear an electronic tracker.

He is also barred from entering Brisbane's safe night precinct during curfew hours.

"He's doing well, he's staying strong and he is just happy he can be reunited with his family," Magill's lawyer Ahmed Dib said outside the court.

"He's happy to comply with those conditions."

Magill is due to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court next month.
