I am a specialist family lawyer and assist clients across a broad range of family law matters including relationship property, care of children, and adoption. My background is in law and psychology.
I am able to assist with obtaining urgent Property, Parenting and Protection Orders from the Family Court where there are immediate concerns. I also have experience in obtaining orders under the PPPR Act where a family member has lost capacity and is no longer able to manage their own affairs.
My aim is to provide pragmatic advice in an empathetic manner in what is often a very stressful and emotional time for clients. In many cases, I work with clients to reach agreement through negotiation. I also regularly appear in the Family Court.
I am a member of the Family Law Section and the Christchurch Family Courts Association.
