We are an accomplished team of criminal barristers who also specialise in Council prosecutions and issues with Animal management, with many years of experience in this highly specialised area of dog law – impending or potential charges under the Dog Control Act 1996. Charges under this act can carry mandatory destruction orders; avoiding a destruction order, either by successfully defending the charge or negotiating with councils, is what we are experts in doing.
He and his legal team have a track record of achieving great results for dog owners.We are experienced, highly skilled, dedicated and professional.
We understand how important dogs are to their owners and that the prospect of losing their dog is daunting. As a team, we will work closely with you, the Council and police to either negotiate, mitigate, reduce or defend the charges brought against you.
We understand that dealing with these types of charges can be a very stressful and emotional experience. Through excellent communication, honesty and determination, we will fight for your rights as the dog owner.
We are based in Auckland and Whangarei but we represent dog owners throughout New Zealand. Because of our specialised practice, we have formed and maintained good relationships with Councils, Dog warden services and police in many different parts of the country.
We pride ourselves on achieving great results for our clients; whether you are facing serious charges or a minor infringement, our approach remains the same; we will work with you to achieve the best possible outcome.
We will provide comprehensive and expert advice about the entire process.
