COVID-19 virus: As a result of the Covid-19 situation, Mackenzie Elvin Law has invoked its business continuity plan.

UPDATE: From Wednesday 8 September 2021 the Mackenzie Elvin offices will be open, in accordance with the Government’s Level 2 Protocols. Mackenzie Elvin staff, Lawyers and Administration will be operating from home and the office, and we expect there will be little to no disruption to anyone who wishes to contact us.

We will keep you updated with any change to this position and advise you accordingly. Mackenzie Elvin Law is committed to containing the spread of this virus, which will in turn hopefully ensure the health and wellbeing of our staff, our families, and our clients.

We will get through this together.



When you’re seeking legal advice, sometimes help can feel out of reach. Being ten floors up and only reserved for the biggest clients doesn’t help. That’s why our top lawyers sit at ground level, in a home office in Tauranga – ready to help.

After all, law isn’t above anyone, it’s for everyone.


Contact us



Mackenzie Elvin Law is represented by some fine lawyers. But you won’t find us in a high rise. Instead, we welcome you into our original family home, where we work side by side.

No egos, just people helping people.
