All Court Work

Criminal Law

We undertake criminal defence work at every level within the justice system be it careless driving through to a charge of murder.

We do appeals right through to the Supreme Court.

Tony Bamford has been involved, as a defence lawyer, in hundreds of trials and has secured not guilty verdicts in murder, manslaughter and serious drug cases as well as cases involving charges such as rape and aggravated robbery.

We have a capable team of lawyers, legal executives and support staff to undertake preparation work for any trial and we will take on any case in the Nelson Marlborough and West Coast areas, and further afield in serious cases.

We take cases on a private paying basis and we will give you a clear idea of the fees we charge, or we may be able to do the case under legal aid if you qualify. Please ask and we will be happy to help. We will advise you all the way through the Court process and if necessary we will engage expert witnesses who may be able to assist your case.

We also undertake civil and commercial litigation in the District and High Courts.
