I have been a lawyer for 18 years. I first practiced as an employment lawyer and general litigator at a firm in Auckland. From 2004 until June 2013 I was a Crown prosecutor. In June 2013 I established my own legal practice. My current work involves the defence of serious criminal charges in the District and High Courts. I appear in court frequently. I have experience appearing before the Court of Appeal, Parole Board and other tribunals. In the past, I have worked as a Youth Advocate. Since 2009 I have worked in the military courts as defence counsel. I sit on the trust board of the Manawatu Restorative Justice Trust, the organisation that provides restorative justice services in the Manawatu, Horowhenua and Tararua regions. I have previously sat on the Manawatu branch committee of the New Zealand Law Society.
