We have been working with Pier Law since 2013 and they are amazing. Going out of their way to make life easy. Caroline and Miria are both wonderful people a pleasure to deal with. We have already recommended them to multiple friends & colleagues and have no hesitation in recommending them again. - Matthew

Extremely professional and friendly service. We are very happy and completely satisfied with Caroline Davey and her team.
I will definitely use them for all of my legal issues. - David Baines

Very friendly helpful lady on the phone when we called to review and update our wills etc. She set us up with an appointment to meet with Bill, who took us through the process of making a will, and setting up EPAs ( Enduring Powers of Attourney). He was very relaxed and friendly and took time to put us at ease. His advice was clear and very professional. The whole process was very calm and non- threatening. His lovely little West Highland Terrier supervised the whole interview from his bed in the corner of the office. If you are looking for legal advice, I would recommend this law office in Kaiapoi. Apparently they also have other offices in the District. It's worth looking them up , and remember; if you don't have a will, you should. I have seen two families where there was no will, after a bereavement, and both could only be described as a mess. - Keith Douthett

Pier Law is a legal firm that would provide you with the best possible legal services that you need. If they know of a more experienced legal provider then they would refer you on to them. Their services are prompt, fair and well priced. They have a great team of lawyers who have an extensive depth of knowledge and experience in this industry. Well worth considering for any legal matters. - Murray Quartly

Did you know that you need more than just a Will?

It’s never an easy topic to think about, but getting your affairs in order makes things far less complicated for your loved ones after you’ve gone, and ensures your assets are dealt with in the way you would like. To make this difficult process a little easier, we’ve compiled a list of the documentation you require.

In addition, we’re offering a comprehensive package combining all the required documentation.  We call this the Peace of Mind Package. 

Included in our package:

  1. Will (a directive for when you pass away);
  2. Living Will (also commonly called advanced directive - a directive for when you do not want your life prolonged artificially);
  3. Enduring Power of Attorney for Property (appoints someone as your Attorney who can look after your property matters whilst you are still alive – can come into effect immediately or when you become mentally incapable);
  4. Enduring Power of Attorney for Personal Care and Welfare (appoints someone as your Attorney who can look after your healthcare matters whilst you are still alive – will only come into effect if you become mentally incapable), and finally;
  5. Digital Assets Register (this register details a list of digital assets you hold, for example a Facebook page, email accounts, cloud storage accounts, etc. so that these can be dealt with once you pass away).


We can meet you at any of our three convenient locations across Christchurch or meet with you at your home or rest home to discuss putting these documents in place. 

Phone 03 366 5540 or email info@pierlaw.co.nz to find out more.
