I am a Court lawyer with 38 years experience and have done 3,000+ cases in the District Court, High Court, Court of Appeal and many Tribunals.
A key feature of my law practice is that clients can communicate directly with me rather than through layers of staff. The personal touch reduces client stress and increases the cost effectiveness of the services I provide. I strive to produce a good result at the earliest possible time.
In 1980 I completed BA and LLB degrees and Law Professionals at the University of Otago. I was admitted to the bar as a Barrister & Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand in December 1980.
In 1987 I was awarded the New Zealand Law Society Litigation Skills Diploma and was elected a member of the Royal Aeronautical Society in 2018.
I am a published author and my most recent book is Umberto Nobile and the Arctic Search for the Airship Italia (Stroud, Fonthill Media, 2017). I regularly contribute articles to New Zealand aviation magazines.
I hold a Commercial Pilot Licence (Aeroplane) and a 'B' category instructor rating and have 3,000+ hours pilot in command. I also hold a Qualified Glider Pilot Certificate and 'C' category glider instructor rating.
