I obtained a Bachelor of Laws Degree and a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Auckland University and was admitted to the bar as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand in 1985. 

I am a member of the New Zealand Law Society and hold a current practising certificate as a Barrister sole.

I am listed as a provider with the legal services agency and accept legal aid assignments for criminal charges. 

I am 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 dependencies. 

I take a careful and planned approach with all my clients. My experience allows me to provide pragmatic advice to achieve the best possible outcome. Please remember that  before you discuss  any confidential information with a Lawyer you must first engage the Lawyer to establish a Client- Lawyer relationship.

An instructing solicitor is required and one can be provided.
