About Us

Professional

Our firm focuses on understanding  all matters thoroughly so that we can get things done efficiently for our clients. 

Forward Thinking

As a soon-to-be paperless office we are always looking for the best ways to improve our process while maintaining our simple and straight forward client experience. 

Community Based

We are proud to support local organizations in our area and always do what we think is best for our clients and community.

Remember the past

Since 1986

McLeods Lawyers has been part of the community since Kerikeri was a small village based around the emerging horticultural industry. We are a locally owned and established firm that has always worked hard to support the community. 

The wider Kerikeri region is now the fastest-growing area in Northland and offers an attractive lifestyle, diverse population and varied business opportunities that we are proud to be a part of. 

Lawyer/Director

Sarah Jury

Sarah Jury uses simple, practical and innovative solutions to obtain the best outcome for her clients while remaining calm, approachable and friendly. Sarah started out in law working for her father at 16 years of age and has been with McLeods since 2004. She has extensive experience, particularly in dealing with relationship property, estates, trusts, wills and conveyancing.

Sarah has a problem with reading too many books- at one stage she was up to 300 per year. Sarah spends a lot of her free time trying to lure her teenage daughter out of her bedroom with snacks and is followed around everywhere by her maltese poodle Louis.
