I have extensive experience in a wide range of civil litigation, having appeared in the District Court, High Court and Court of Appeal.
In the last 10 years my focus has been on the medical legal field. I founded Medico Law Ltd in 2010, following 7 years practice as a Barrister.
I graduated from Auckland University in 1992 and was admitted in 1993. I've practiced both in New Zealand and Fiji, working as a State prosecutor in Fiji for 2 years, undertaking prosecutions for offences such as murder, manslaughter, fraud and electoral breaches.
Outside of law I have many and varied interests. I'm married with 4 children. I'm very much involved in a number of projects for my village in Yasawa, Fiji. I'm also a Trustee of Reduced Impaired Driving in NZ, a charitable trust committed to reducing impaired driving and thus promoting safer driving practices in New Zealand. I also find time to play social soccer, rugby and squash.

The practice of law can be very dry, but health law is about people, peoples' stories, and it can be a hugely rewarding area.
I was admitted to the legal profession in 2001 and have acted as external counsel, representing ACC in reviews, District Court appeals, and the High Court, for the majority of the time since.
As a team, we have considerable expertise and knowledge in what is a difficult area of the law.
I also have a background in the retail and importing sector, the skills from which one might think are not directly applicable to the legal sector, but to the contrary, at Medico Law, we understand that we are providing our clients a service, and service delivery matters.
The practice of law is at its best when practitioners have perspective. My work is important to me, but so is my family. Each day I get to go home to a slightly harassed husband and two delightful children.
