Lawyer, Mediator

I have been practising family law in Aotearoa New Zealand for over 20 years. I am past Chair of the Collaborative Resolution NZ (the Collaborative Law Association of NZ) - a growing and enthusiastic group of Collaborative Professionals in New Zealand.

In 2002, I formed Family Law Results - a law firm that specialises in family law. My work focuses on 'family formation' (surrogacy, assisted reproduction and adoption) and 'family transition' - assisting clients to find solutions outside of Court as they navigate a separation or divorce. From time to time I have also worked as a contract lecturer at AUT University in the area of dispute resolution and I serve as a Collaborative Practice trainer for Collaborative Resolution NZ. I am fortunate to be regularly asked to speak in New Zealand about Collaborative Practice and family law.

I am a proud stepmother to a stepson, who is forging a career as a biomedical engineer, and stepdaughter, a talented nurse. When time being mum to an 11 year old son allows, I throw myself (involuntarily) into ditches from a mountain bike, cook, read, hike and blog about family law practice. You can read my blog at
