I was born and raised in Nelson, returning to the region in 2012 after time at university and travelling. I hold a Master of Laws (Honours) which focused on criminal and medical law. I also attained a Bachelor of Laws as well as a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Canterbury. I was admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor in 2013 and have worked in criminal and family law since then.
I specalise in criminal defence work, regularly appearing in the Nelson District Court and High Court on cases ranging from traffic offences, like drink driving, to more serious charges including assaults, drugs and sexual offending. I also act on selected Family Court proceedings.
