I am a lawyer with over 30 years experience in the courts and tribunals of New Zealand. I have acted for over 3000 clients in all kinds of criminal, traffic and aviation cases and have the expertise to act for you from first appointment to final appeal.
It is always my hope that I can resolve a problem at the earliest possible moment and to the satisfaction of the client.

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.

I was born and raised in Dunedin and have practised law here since 1981. I was educated at John McGlashan College (1958 to 1965), Otago Boys High School (1966 to 1968) and the University of Otago (1972-1974 & 1977 to 1980).
I was capped Bachelor of Arts in 1974 and Bachelor of Laws in 1980. At the end of 1980 (after completing the law professionals course) I was admitted to the bar as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand.

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.
