Justine Grey became interested in the Law when working for the Crown Prosecution Service in London on her OE many years ago. Justine has built a career covering a multitude of disciplines within the law with a special interest in property, commercial and trust law.

Its not just about the Black Letter Law its about building relationships with business colleagues and clients and getting to know their business. This makes an effective team and provides a better outcome for everyone.

Aside from managing clients, property sales and purchases, Justine has worked with clients completing local subdivisions, advising on construction contracts, retirement villages, bringing solutions to matrimonial breakups, advising businesses on terms of trade, leases, employment agreements and helping her clients through the processes of buying and selling businesses.

Married with three adult children, Justine understands the demands of the modern world and the part technology plays but with the ultimate belief that client’s still like that ‘personal touch’ someone who is interested in them and what they are doing. Justine calls Rangiora home after being raised in Christchurch and Rangiora. With Justine’s background, and general life experience she can work on many levels.

You guessed it – the surname similarity is more than a coincidence. Simon is Justine’s husband for 25 plus years. The couple have worked many times alongside each other and together build a great team.

Simon has worked within many industries, from manufacturing to outdoor adventure and for the latter part building Ashley Law and now Law4You.

Simon is the teams’ ‘go-to’ man. He also has responsibility for the firm’s trust account, client database information, administration management and making sure the general nuts and bolts of the business function.

Simon is a keen watcher of car racing who enjoys relaxing with family and friends.

He also enjoys the outdoors from sea kayaking to tramping and getting away on the family annual camp to Tasman Bay.
