Matthew Shirley

LL.B., B.Com

I work with mainly commercial and property matters including both residential and commercial.  I also perform other general practice matters including trusts, wills, and enduring power of attorneys.

I grew up in South Auckland and attended a local high school before moving to Otago to complete my bachelor’s degrees. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Otago however, Rice Craig presented an amazing opportunity to return to South Auckland to be around my family.

I started at Rice Craig in January 2022 and was admitted to the bar in September 2022. Rice Craig is an excellent firm and has provided me with a solid base to begin my legal career with very knowledgeable co-workers to learn from.

Outside of work you will find me playing rugby, watching sports, travelling, and spending time with my family.
