I am passionate about giving the best advice.  Continuing education is vital and in just the last 12 months I have studied:

  • Legalwise Immigation Law Conference (2022)


I have been a lawyer for 27 years; enjoying work in four different law firms , developing a wealth of legal experience. The recent post quake redevelopment of Christchurch, and the need for skilled overseas people, has seen my immigration law practice expand.  I am fortunate to have assisted hundreds of clients who have made the journey to Christchurch with their families to assist with the rebuild of the city and for many to then become New Zealand Residents.
