I began my career in general legal practice in North Otago in 2009. My focus was on litigation from the outset but the general practice grounding has been an invaluable base of experience for dispute resolution in all areas. I work primarily in Canterbury and Otago. I have strong connections in both areas. I practice law locally and nationally.
The legal work I enjoy involves personal connections. I want to know about you and your story. I want to know how I can help you, your family, your business or your organisation resolve an issue or improve a difficult situation.
If you are seeking understanding, empathy and plain English to demystify the process then contact me.
My practice is varied and I am available to assist you with Litigation and Dispute Resolution in the following areas:
Family Law - with a specific focus on relationship property
Trust, Estate and Will Litigation
Civil Litigation (High Court/District Court)
I also undertake Ministry of Justice appointed roles as:
Lawyer for Child
Lawyer for Subject Person
Lawyer to Assist (the Court)
Bachelor of Laws (University of Canterbury, 2009)
Bachelor of Arts (University of Otago, 2004)
