Welcome to Ebborn Law
We’re a small firm with a big heart and we want to provide you with the best legal advice. We do some things differently from other law firms so we can continue offering services to legally-aided clients. We also offer fixed fees for some family law matters for clients who are otherwise ineligible for legal aid.
Experienced and Respected
With over 15 years as a family law litigator, Erin and her team will give you sound advice and excellent representation. Our practice covers the full spectrum of family matters, as well as criminal and property.
We are always looking to the future to see how we can lead the way in providing family law in New Zealand. We also like to be actively involved in community: buying from local suppliers where we can, providing an excellent workplace and getting involved with things like the 48 Hour Furious Film-making Competition and the Canterbury Employers' Chamber of Commerce.
Ebborn Law offers a fixed-fee option in many cases. This means the cost risk is spread more evenly between you the client and us as your lawyer. We think this is fairer than a straight hourly rate.
Family Law is our Specialty
Our approach is to be flexible to your needs and to do things that make life easier for our clients, so we have longer opening hours, we accept both private and legally-aided clients and offer a variety of products to help you with your legal matters.
Ebborn Law tries to be a leader in all aspects of Family Law, from participating in government consultation processes to providing support to the community and social service sector.
Ebborn Law is the largest provider of family legal aid in the South Island.
