David Balfour: 

David's entry into the employment advocacy market came after many years as a probation officer, giving him a bullshit-radar far more accurate than the usual.

David combines supreme tenacity with a mild-mannered personality that employers underestimate to their peril.

Looking after the lower North Island, David will take your case throughout the HB/Taranaki/Manawatu and Wellington regions - he attends mediation in Wellington on a weekly basis so is never far away.

He has excellent empathy and a great understanding of employment law and precedent.

David recently completed a [very!] successful case where damages of $23,000 were awarded along with lost wages.

Bay of plenty/waikato:

Craig Horsley: 

Craig has over twenty years' experience in employment (and other) law. He services Waikato/Bay of Plenty from his Tauranga base.

If you need help or advice in those regions, call us now to get Craig on your case - he is a dynamic straight shooter who will give you sound advice on the merits of your case.

Craig is outstanding at dealing with large corporates and the other side's lawyers.

With a professional legal background Craig is the company's in-depth law expert. Employers looking to circumvent laws by sham changes of ownership or other devious means will not beat his ability to tie the liability to those who are actually liable.
