Tayla graduated with a bachelor of laws from the University of Waikato in 2014.
During her studies Tayla did an internship with the New Zealand Police in her home town Gisborne. Tayla says that time spent working within the community inspired her passion for helping people and her decision to pursue a career in family law.
Tayla moved to the Auckland area after she was admitted to the bar in 2015, where she began her career as a solicitor at Oranga Tamariki – Ministry for Children, in Manukau. During her time there, Tayla established good professional relationships within the South Auckland bar and Family Court stakeholders.
Tayla recently joined the Family Team at Denham Bramwell in January 2018.
Tayla enjoys the people aspect of practising law and is grateful for the opportunity to assist people to resolve their disputes in or outside the Family Court. Tayla understands that the legal process can be intimidating, therefore takes a compassionate approach and makes an effort to put people at ease in challenging times.
