Georgia is a litigation solicitor who specialises in Crown prosecutions, employment law and civil litigation. Georgia is very empathetic and is able to relate to people from a range of diverse backgrounds and cultures.

Georgia is conscious of the need to treat all clients as individuals, focusing on their particular situation. She likes to make sure her clients are kept informed every step of the way and tailors her work to ensure a client’s specific needs are met.

Georgia is the Otago/Southland Representative for the New Zealand Māori Law Society and is a member of the Southland Young and New Practitioners. Georgia also runs the Southland Lawyer’s Waiata Group. Georgia has whakapapa to Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairarapa and Ngāi Tahu ki Murihiku (Riverton, Bluff). She is a strong advocate for having te reo Māori and Tikanga Māori accommodated by the New Zealand Law System. Georgia regularly uses te reo Māori in Court appearances.

Outside of work, Georgia enjoys going for walks, hanging out with her friends and snowboarding in the winter months.
