Bruce Millar - Matrix Trust

"My husband and I have worked with Davenports Law for many years. In both our personal and trust affairs, the staff have always been very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. It is our pleasure to highly recommend Davenports Law to anyone looking for a proficient, skilled, up-to-date law firm."

Natalie Turner

"Tammy and the team at Davenports were fantastic to deal with when I was setting up my trust. Not only did they make me and my family feel really welcome, but they took the time to explain the more complicated aspects of trust law in a way that I found easy to understand."

Sam & Pia

"Every experience with the firm has been really positive. In this latest dealing with Bronwen she assured me at the outset that opposing counsel had quite a reputation - but no match for her. She was right. But in the loveliest way. I hoped for solid and professional advice. I got all that as well as empathy, strength, really good judgement, but also the feeling of a problem shared. I am very grateful to Bronwen for achieving the best possible outcome."

Christina - Aquatica NZ Limited

"The team at Davenports Law are extremely professional and a pleasure to deal with. They have assisted our business across a range of legal matters (HR, Health & Safety, Contracts, Employment Law) and also provided assistance on Trust Law. Everyone I have interacted with has been very thorough and the follow up is always excellent."
