Jim qualified from the University of Auckland with Law and Arts degrees and was admitted as a barrister and solicitor in 2000.  He also has a Master of Laws (LL.M) degree from University College London achieved in 2002.

Jim has specialised in property law for fifteen years.

As a proud West Aucklander and in a desire to work closer to home to spend more time with his young family, Jim joined Cook Morris Quinn in June 2016 to head the property team.  His areas of practice include residential conveyancing, subdivisions, trusts, retirement villages and estate administration.  He has recently been involved in the area of transferable title development rights.

Outside of work, Jim enjoys spending time with his wife, his young son and his two twin baby daughters, and when the opportunity presents itself (which is almost never), some land-based fishing.  He supports the New Zealand Warriors.
