Say Hello


I work with Trevor Quirk and practice in the areas of property and commercial, as well as assisting clients with solutions for their future by providing advice regarding Wills, Trusts and Enduring Power of Attorney.

I enjoy helping people and being their trusted advisor - especially those who are purchasing their first home and are experiencing legal issues for the first time.  The process of purchasing a home, obtaining a mortgage, applying to withdraw KiwiSaver funds and / or the First Home Grant from Kainga Ora can be overwhelming - and even more so when it needs to be done under time pressure. I will simplify and organise the process, working together with my clients to spread the workload.  

 Property and Commercial

  • The sale and purchase of residential real estate and business
    • First home purchases
    • New home builds (including House and Land and ‘Turn-key’ packages)
    • KiwiSaver first home withdrawal
    • Kainga Ora First Home Grant
  • Commercial leases

Private Client

  • Wills
  • Family Trusts
  • Enduring Powers of Attorney


LLB, University of Canterbury, School of Law

I feel it is important to keep up to date with changes in the law. In the last 12 months, I have attended the following seminars:

  • Tax - Land Transactions
  • Stepping Forward (Wellness) Programme


I graduated in 2002 and joined a well-established law firm and practiced mainly in property and commercial law. I then joined Layburn Hodgins in May 2021. In my free time I enjoy travelling around New Zealand with my wife and our little bichon frise.
