    Ethan Huda

    Christchurch Central City, Christchurch

    The focus of my practice is criminal trials and appeals.

    I act for people who are about to be or have been charged with violent, sexual and drug offences.

    I also act for those who have been convicted and want to appeal against conviction and sentence.

    Sometimes, I act for people who want to oppose the making of extended supervision orders (ESOs).

    You should instruct me to act for you if you want a lawyer who will focus on the end result and provide a service that will satisfy your individual needs and not a one-size-fits-all service.

    I have successfully acted for clients in criminal cases in every court in the country: District Court, High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.
