The report provided was helpful to the Court. The Crown Prosecutor was so impressed he accepted that there should be a reduction of 6 months for matters included. The Prosecutor in fact said it was the best cultural report he had seen in terms of its depth and analysis.Lawyer, Tauranga

I originate from China and have been living in our beautiful Aotearoa for more than a decade.
Through my career working in various settings both in overseas and in New Zealand, I have provided side-by-side support to clients to achieve their goals, ensuring they are well engaged and supported. I have worked in a variety of roles in assisting people from all walks of life, along with their whānau/families. This includes those involved in the criminal justice system, students, senior citizens, people living with disabilities, people with mental health issues, and those struggling with addictions.
I am empathetic and always utilise a welcoming approach when dealing with people from all backgrounds. I believe working with manaakitanga will enable me to know our clients, understand how to best support them, and work with them to meet their needs to achieve the best possible outcome for them.
I believe that the right to justice should recognise each individual’s cultural and ethnic background.
