family lawyer | manukau

Why us?

We understand that disruption within families causes huge amounts of stress.  For that reason the best thing you can do is get good quality, objective legal advice.

As well as being good technically, where our family law Barristers stand out is in their knowledge and understanding of cultural dynamics within families.  This is because of the grounding Corin Merrick and Stormie Waapu have in Te Reo Māori me ngā tikanga (Māori language and customs).   

where we can help:

We can help you in the following types of family law cases:

  • parenting orders.
  • protection orders.
  • care and protection cases (MVCOT, CYFS).
  • guardianship.
