Jim qualified from the University of Auckland with Law and Arts degrees and was admitted as a barrister and solicitor in 2000.  He continued his legal studies at the University College London obtaining a Master of Laws (LL.M) degree in 2002.

From 2003, Jim worked in a small city-based law firm becoming a Partner of that firm in 2012, specialising in the law of property.  As a proud West Aucklander and in a desire to work closer to home to spend more time with his young family, Jim joined the property team of Cook Morris Quinn in June 2016 as a Senior Solicitor.  His areas of practice include residential conveyancing, trusts, estate administration and some relationship property work.

Outside of work, Jim enjoys spending time with his wife and young son, and when the opportunity presents itself, some land-based fishing.  He is a retired serial pub quizzer and supports the New Zealand Warriors.
