Defending those charged with criminal offences is the cornerstone of Guardian Chambers. Barristers from our Chambers appear all over New Zealand, predominantly in Auckland, and undertake both legally aided and privately funded work.

Defence work covers a broad spectrum. We have a team of expert criminal practitioners with extensive experience in the criminal courts at all levels of seniority in the defence of all types of Criminal Charges. Members of Chambers act in cases across the entire range of offences from murder to armed robberies to major drugs cases to sexual offences to fraud matters as well as traffic offences and other district court matters.

We also specialise in appellant work and senior members of chambers have appeared in many high profile appeals in both the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.

We are proud to have developed a strong balanced team of lawyers and advocacy skills to enable us to provide clients with sound judgment and effectiveness all under one roof. The varied and complementary skills of our members mean that we can cater for all your consultation and advocacy needs.
