Sonalia Tamia

Law Clerk


Born in Durban, South Africa, Sonalia has chosen to reside in Queenstown, finding in our small town a mirror to the diverse nature of the big city she once called home.

 Sonalia completed her studies at the University of Otago in late 2021 and undertook her professional legal studies shortly thereafter. Sonalia will be admitted to the Bar in mid 2022 and is looking forward to commencing her career as a graduate lawyer with the firm.  In the meantime she is gaining valuable experience as a Law Clerk.

 With interests in personal and societal wellbeing, Sonalia has joined our litigation team. More specifically, the criminal and family areas of practise. What she aims to bring to the table is clear, concise and workable advice while also promoting options that are realistic and give light to individual circumstances.

 Outside of the office, you can find Sonalia in a hot yoga studio either teaching or perfecting her own practise. She also likes to indulge in Queenstown’s finer things and you can often find her at local restaurants and wineries.
