Dew James joined the Laurent Law family on 3 July 2017 and we are ecstatic to have her on board.

Dew migrated to New Zealand from Malaysia in 2002 and she called the Far North home for the first few years. She graduated from the University of Waikato with a Bachelor of Laws with First Class Honours. Along the way she received several scholarships and even became a Law Tutor.

She has experience in all areas of Immigration and Refugee Law and specialised in  family-based applications and appeals up until now. Her extensive experience with special visas for victims of domestic violence demonstrates the value that she will add to the firm repertoire. Her exposure has also enabled her to gain valuable experience with residence and humanitarian appeals as well as section 61 and Ministerial requests involving rights of the child.

Dew is very keen to continue to practice in this very demanding yet rewarding area of law. We welcome her to the firm and already know that she will make a valuable contribution to our lives and to the lives of our clients.

Dew has the following to say as an introduction: “A client’s best interest is second only to a lawyer’s duty as an Officer of the Court. Therefore, my role as your legal representative is to provide objective advice and pragmatic options that will best serve your immigration pathway in New Zealand.”

We invite you to make an appointment to meet Dew so she can be your guide on your way to realising your dream of living and working in this beautiful country full of promise and hope.
