PROFESSIONAL INFO

 

Stephen was called to the bar in 2008, entering practice as a barrister sole following a short stint in the public service. After practicing as a litigation solicitor from 2009 to 2011, Stephen returned to sole practice focusing on criminal and civil litigation.

Stephen's practice now primarily covers civil and commercial disputes, with the occasional criminal brief accepted.

PERSONAL

 

Stephen grew up in Pukerua Bay, on the coast just north of Wellington. He has traveled extensively, and is developing a more global practice, having recently traveled to London as counsel in an International Arbitration.

Outside of the law, Stephen can either be found enjoying life with his family, training in martial arts, or pursuing one of his entrepreneurial endeavors.

TESTIMONIALS

I just want to say how grateful I am of the work you have done for my family Stephen, without your wealth of knowledge and calm approach to what was an awful situation we really wouldn't be in the position we are today. Having your knowledge and experience has simplified the process and I am eternally grateful for the outcome you achieved for us.

Stephen picked up my case a little less then a week before my court date to which he immediately got up to speed with my situation and straight away made me feel completely comfortable and at ease. He did a lot of work helping me put forward the best proposal possible which gave me and my family the best possible outcome we could have hoped for.

Not many lawyers can say they had a client walk in to their office facing a drug charge carrying life imprisonment, and walk out of Court with a discharge without conviction. Well done.

Having a natural aversion to lawyers, I found when I required the services of one, I could not have found a more professional yet sympathetic lawyer such as yourself. You helped me to clarify the issues and defended my corner with panache when the so called big boys tried their “bullying tactics”. Stephen thank you for the work that you put in on my behalf and I would sincerely recommend your services to any person who needed an excellent Barrister"

- Stephen was contacted by a solicitor who was unavailable for a pending hearing. Despite the client having a very good relationship with their solicitor, they were appreciative of the service they received from Stephen, and impressed at the ability to get up to speed in very short order.

- This case saw Stephen fly to Christchurch, have the matter transferred to Wellington, then put it to bed. The client was very happy with the outcome, and has moved on in business and life.

Stephen demonstrated sound knowledge over a wide area of law, was responsive, and showed professionalism and integrity in the face of opposing lawyers who seemed determined to use underhanded, unprofessional, bullying, and delaying legal tactics at every possible step...

 

- In this matter, Stephen utilised all his skills in dispute resolution to stop the matter (that had been going on for years before landing on Stephen's desk) from bankrupting all of the parties concerned. While High Court proceedings were drafted and filed, they served as a stick to ensure the carrots presented at mediation had the best chance of being accepted.
