    Keam Law

    Auckland CBD, Auckland

    We are specialists in criminal offences - family and trust law - civil disputes.

    We understand that involving a lawyer in your life, is quite often something you did not have much of a choice with. The social issues that can affect us, such as issues around family, criminal, or employment matters, can be difficult, frustrating, and daunting. We understand this.

    We also understand that on top of the actual issues themselves, the thought of a legal process being involved in the outcome of your life, can be very overwhelming.

    Having other people involved in your private matters can seem intrusive and invasive. We appreciate what you are going through, and accept you for who you are. It is not our place to judge you, but it is our place to listen to what you are dealing with, evaluate the legal framework, and then outline the options open to you within the law.

    We will work with you to achieve the best possible outcome. This may not always be your ideal outcome, and it may also involve some compromise on your part, but it will be the best way forward to solve your problem.
