I head the Litigation Team and supervise our Family Law Team. Since joining Rice Craig in 1995, I have resolved all manner of disputes and gained a wide array of experience across a broad litigation spectrum. I enjoy the stratagem and problem solving aspects of litigation. I add value by providing proactive advocacy and straight-shooting advice to clients. My track record in relation to successful Family Protection claims against estates is excellent. I am interested in Defamation Law, and any areas that involve novel questions of law.  I love to spend time with my wife and two children and enjoy cross country running.

Recent work experience: For recent reported Decisions at all levels of Court practice, including District Court, High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, see Recent Cases
