I began my legal career in Auckland nearly 20 years ago. I have always been passionate about defence, and within 2 years I'd established my own practice, developing my skills in trial advocacy and negotiation. I've represented clients accused of every type of crime imaginable, from a sister hitting her sibling with a hairbrush to murder. I've brought a successful private prosecution against the Commissioner of Police for harrassment and defended a caregiver accused of sexually violating her tetraplegic patient.
It's likely I've already represented someone in your situation. I understand that sometimes a person is at the wrong place at the wrong time, has made a genuine mistake or simply has drug and alcohol issues. I will always listen to you, explain to you, and answer any question you may have. We will decide your best defence strategy together once you have a complete understanding of your postion and will work towards a positive outcome.
I understand how my clients are affected by their cases- after 20 years I know that being charged with a crime is one of the most traumatic and stressful experiences anyone can endure. I'm passionate about defending my clients, and dispassionate when dealing with evidence.
