Wellington lawyer Lance Pratley offers much more than the legal qualifications. He brings a wider than usual perspective to law from an already successful career in trustee and financial services both in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. He is also a graduate in accountancy – often a most valuable skill in legal encounters.
Lance usually aims for his clients to achieve results by negotiation or mediation. This saves time and money as well as minimising client stress.
Sometimes however, clients are left with little or no alternative to Court. The focus then becomes one of effective preparation and presentation of the case.
Lance has extensive experience in the Family Court, District Court & High Court. He also has conducted appeals in the District and High Courts as well as in the Court of Appeal.
Many of Lance’s clients come on referral or recommendation from other lawyers.
