About Us

An approachable, friendly law firm who take the headaches out of legal matters.

David J Brown & Associates now merged with Thomas & Co Lawyers Ltd

As of 1 October 2021 the David J Brown & Associates practice has merged with Thomas & Co Lawyers Ltd.  Thomas & Co is a well established law practice that commenced business in 1966 when the original partner opened what was then only the second law office in New Lynn and just the sixth in West Auckland. 

On 1 April 2017 that practice merged with Titirangi Law Centre established by Ray Ganda in 1986.

The object of the mergers is to continue the proud history of the 3 firms as West Aucklandʼs leading law firms. The combined practices mean increased resources are available to improve the service offered to our clients. 

We are now conveniently located in the commercial centre of New Lynn that is the gateway to the green belt West Auckland area that was Waitakere City. The office is handy to the bus/train interchange in New Lynn with onsite parking and lift access. Our staff are local residents who know the area and people so are able to give specialised practical advice on options available to clients. 

The combined practices continue to bring our dedication and experience to all areas of practice as we have since our 1988 start up.
