Legal representation when results matter

A conviction can reduce your career options

When results matter
Legal representation for traffic and police charges




I am a Barrister (Criminal Defence Lawyer) and assist my clients with all traffic and police charges. This includes excess breath or blood alcohol, dangerous or careless driving, sustained loss of traction, driving whilst disqualified, theft, burglary, family violence or possession of drugs. 

I am also an appointed Lawyer in the Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment Court at Waitakere District Court and specialise in dealing with people who have alcohol or drug dependancies.   

I work at the Waitakere District Court and North Shore District Court.  My office is located in Henderson, just behind the Waitakere District Court.

 I provide a wide range of services including applications for a discharge without conviction, special reasons applications, community based sentences or defending the charges.

I approach each case with integrity and professionalism to ensure that if you are charged with an offence, you have the right to the best defence and I will investigate all the options for you. 

The right approach


The first step is to work with you and come up with a plan to get the results you need. Through my understanding of the law and your understanding of the circumstances, we will develop the right approach.

Traffic or Criminal Charges


 Facing a traffic or criminal charge is a difficult time and I know the stress this can cause and the need to seek the right advice that will help you make the best choices.  


My office is conveniently located just behind the Waitakere District Court: Please phone to make an appointment.
