Office:  Papanui


I set up Bishopdale Law in 1997 and as of 1 April 2022 joined forces with Saunders Lawyers adding our Papanui office as a fourth branch.


I started my Legal Career in 1981 after completing a Law Degree at the University of Canterbury. After working in a Law Firm in Christchurch I spent 2 years in the North Island working for both a city and rural firm. I returned to Christchurch and have worked in Bishopdale since 1985.


I have over the years developed a wide and varied private client base specialising in property transactions (both residential and commercial), Wills, Estates, Trusts, Enduring Powers of Attorney and Elder Law Issues.


I am married with three adult children. My main interests outside work are running, cycling, watching sport (particularly rugby) and travel. I love planning my next overseas adventure. I also enjoy owning a small share in a number of racehorses and follow them with unjustified optimism.
