If you are looking for a defence lawyer, please read our FAQ page for advice on your legal position and next steps.
Working on all criminal law cases
Charged with an offence that is to be heard at the District Court or High Court? I will represent all criminal charges, including:
You also get the reassurance of working with a professional who is heavily involved in criminal law, defence and the Crimes Act 1961. I specialise in criminal law and I do not accept instructions in the area of contract law, family law or other specialties.
- Rape and sexual offences
- Fisheries or customs offences
- Driving charges
- And other matters.
Can advise on relations with police
Get advice on making statements to the police and assistance at police interviews, whether at the police stations or the airport. Should it be necessary, I will appear for you at court for bail and to defend any criminal charges.
Never talk to the police without legal advice, visit our FAQ for more information on dealing with Police.
A low profile approach to your representation
As far as possible, a low profile approach to your legal representation is taken and maintained. Many clients find that an important aspect of my service is "flying below the radar."
Representing all Auckland
Practicing from Federal Chambers with three other criminal law barristers, opposite the Auckland District Court, puts me in a great position to represent you at the Auckland Court. I can represent any client in Auckland and will appear at:
- Court of Appeal
- Auckland High Court
- Auckland District Court
- Waitakere District Court
- North Shore District Court (Albany)
- Manakau District Court
