Kirstin Monk - LLB
Kirstin graduated in 1997 and started work in Hawke’s Bay not long after. With extensive experience in all aspects of family law, Kirstin particularly enjoys relationship property work and being able to assist her clients through what is often a very difficult time in their life. Kirstin’s workload also includes Court approved Lawyer for Child appointments, acting for young people in the Youth Court who have been charged with a criminal offence and being appointed by the Court to act for vulnerable people under welfare based legislation.
Outside of work (and sometimes within work hours) Kirstin has previously donated a lot of time to Blue Light Hastings (an awesome community organisation – please check them out) and to the Heretaunga Women’s Centre. Kirstin is also on the Care and Protection Resource Panel at Oranga Tamariki.
In winter Kirstin can sometimes go missing from the office to sneak off to the snow to get her downhill speed fix. Exercising is a priority and she is a lover of boot camps and functional movement type classes, as both a participant and trainer.. But Kirstin also eats the most out of anyone in the office so it's all about balance.
