WCM Legal has extensive experience in defending a wide range of criminal and traffic related charges. We can also assist with associated matters such as limited (work) licences, appeals, log book offences, and transport licensing matters.
Our Senior Associate Jock Blathwayt has been the mainstay of the firm’s Court practice for many years and has acted for defendants in many trials. He is based in our Carterton office, but spends a lot of time in Court at Masterton, Wellington and Palmerston North.
He specialises in criminal proceedings as well as litigation at all levels, including the Court of Appeal.
Our criminal section is also supported by staff solicitor Virginia Pearson, particularly in respect of limited licences.
