We are taking practical steps to protect our clients, staff, families and the wider community from the spread of COVID-19 under the New Zealand Government COVID-19 Protection Framework (currently ORANGE).  We are able to meet with clients in our offices by appointment only, made in advance.  We will make alternative arrangements (phone, email & video conference) for clients that are unwell, have COVID-19 or are displaying COVID-19-like symptoms.  A face covering is required to be worn while visiting our offices.

What I do

At {mds} law I specialise in property (residential and commercial), commercial law, trust and estate planning, relationship property and employment.  I am also experienced and routinely involved in civil litigation, dispute resolution, and estate administration – including Family Protection Act claims.

I bring extensive experience across the private and public sectors to the table, from my time in private practice here in New Zealand to my time with a large UK multinational company and separate UK Government department.

How I like to work with clients             

I enjoy working closely alongside and together with my clients to help them achieve results that best serve their needs.  To do that I make sure I fully understand my client’s position, preferred outcome(s) and the circumstances they face.  I keep my clients fully informed of all options available to them and make sure I clearly understand my client’s expectations, however they might change and develop over time, to ensure I meet and exceed them.

My approach to client service

My client’s best interests are my priority and I always strive to deliver the best service I can for them.  I am always approachable and honest with my clients which I find helps me to provide robust and practical advice – even if that is sometimes hard for a client to hear.  It is important to me that I am available to my clients whenever they need me, as I find a quick call or email outside business hours will often resolve an issue quickly, prevent difficulties further down the track, and alleviate stress and pressure for my clients.

What I like doing after hours

I have two primary school age children and we enjoy spending time as a family mountain biking, kayaking, camping and enjoying the great outdoors.  I am originally from the West Coast and I try to get back there as often as I can as nothing beats the Coast on a fine day.
