Murder / Manslaughter
These charges are often regarded as the most serious of all criminal allegations.
Guardian Chambers is a practice of specialist criminal lawyers who defend in all types of criminal hearings and trials.
Defending clients 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.

Members of chambers act in cases across the entire range of offences including murder, aggravated robberies, major drugs cases, sexual offences, fraud matters as well as traffic offences and other summary District Court matters. Our 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 team of lawyers who enable us to provide clients with sound judgement 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.
