Our team of friendly lawyers, solicitors, barristers & conveyancing specialists work from our two offices in Manurewa (Manukau) & Botany Junction.
Swayne McDonald has a staff of 6 lawyers and 2 registered legal executives, each with an interest, wide experience and detailed knowledge in their own particular ‘area’ of law. Legal services provided cover residential and commercial conveyancing, small business/commercial, family trusts, property law, Wills, deceased estate administration, all aspects of family law, matrimonial and relationship property agreements/settlements, immigration, together with a wide range of other general legal matters.
Our view is that the services we provide to clients directly should be only those services which we can provide efficiently and cost-effectively. If a client requires a legal services in an area of law we do not have a sufficient level of expertise in then such work is briefed to those whom we believe are best able to achieve the result our client desires. We do not pretend to be a full service legal firm, however, we do believe that through our informal network of associations and knowledge of the legal profession we can directly, or indirectly, obtain the optimum result for our clients.
We pride ourselves on providing, to a wide range of private and business clients, personal, efficient and friendly service combining sound legal knowledge with extensive practical experience. The former Pakuranga legal practices of Michael Howcroft and Patricia Bentinck-Stokes have been incorporated into Swayne McDonald.
