72 Teasdale Street, Te Awamutu

(07) 871 8007

My name is Richard Swarbrick and I work in Te Awamutu as part of a long-established law firm, which currently operates as Swarbricks. I am the fourth-generation member and my son James is the fifth.

I have always specialised in Family Law, and for the past 30 or so years I have worked on assignments for at-risk children, many of whom have been in the legal custody of various State organisations. This in turn requires me to work with families who are in sometimes fraught relationships with official agencies. Part of my job has been to explain different people’s roles, and to mediate between people.

Kia ora.

My legal experience is primarily based in the area of family law (adoption, matters involving children, adult relationships, family violence, dissolutions, relationship property issues, trust litigation, estate disputes and PPPR issues).  I also have experience in civil litigation covering a wide range of disputes. 

I regularly appear in a number of different Courts for parties and in a Court appointed role whereby I represent children. 

I look forward to being able to provide legal support to participants in this inquiry.
