I have more than 25 years’ experience having worked in both small and large firms and in 2019 I set up my own practice, LS Law.  I enjoy practicing law and guiding my clients through the process whether it is buying their first home, setting up a business or preparing for the future.  I want to establish relationships with my clients so I can provide effective, economic and timely advice. I became a Northlander in 2011 when my family moved to Kerikeri.  I enjoy the beautiful Far North and all that is has to offer myself and my family including gorgeous beaches, friendly people and a strong sense of community.
