Court Appearances

Our lawyers are able to deal with matters in the District Court, Family Court, Employment Court, High Court and certain Tribunals.

For most people, their first contact with the court system will be in either the Family Court or the District Court. The Family Court is a specialised court as the name implies. The District Court has a wide jurisdiction and deals with many different legal matters – traffic, criminal, civil claims, restraining orders, animal welfare cases and appeals from various Tribunals.

While lawyers can appear in certain Tribunals, there are some Tribunals that lawyers are not permitted to appear, such as the Disputes Tribunal. Appeals against a decision by a Tribunal including the Disputes Tribunal, are dealt with by the District Court.
