Petrina Siliva

Senior Associate

Petrina began her career in general litigation working for a large firm before specialising in family law in 2010 and joining Denham Bramwell in 2018.

Her practice includes all areas of family law including parenting, guardianship disputes, family violence, adoption, relationship property, contracting out agreements, and matters concerning the Protection of Personal Property Rights Act. 

Petrina’s style is firm but collaborative and pragmatic with a focus on the bigger picture. She is a strong client advocate whilst being solutions driven. 

Proud to serve the South Auckland community, Petrina considers it a real privilege to assist some of our city’s most vulnerable people in times of high stress.

Outside of the office, Petrina enjoys time with family, binging on Netflix and catching up with friends over good food.
