How It Started

About Lifestyle Legal

My name is Hilary Jenkins. I have worked in the property law arena in small and medium-sized law firms for more than 20 years, dealing with all aspects of residential and commercial property.

Our Story

As an experienced conveyancer, I understand that property law can be daunting. During my years working in law practices, I found that many clients didn’t have a thorough understanding of the process and were hesitant to ask questions regarding important property law matters that could affect them.

I believed there had to be a better way of doing it. I wanted to use my specialist expertise to untangle the complex world of property law while providing personalised, down-to-earth advice to ensure my clients always felt informed and properly looked after.

Our Story

I created Lifestyle Legal out of a passion for my work and a desire to provide my clients with practical solutions that are easy to understand. As a conveyancer, I pride myself on my approachability and I always provide my clients with honest answers to every question.

Hilary Jenkins

Owner

I’m Hilary, the founder and Director of Lifestyle Legal. Nearly all of my working life has been within the property law industry and it’s something I enjoy with a passion – in the ever changing world of property law, keeping up with the latest developments and deciphering it all for our clients so they can have the best experience possible is really a privilege. On the personal front I am born and bred in West Auckland and have a long suffering (he says) husband, two nearly adult (they think) boys and a raft of pets and other animals on our lifestyle block in Henderson Valley where we’ve lived since 2012. In my time away from the office I enjoy hanging out with family and friends and you can often find me around hockey turfs across Auckland cheering loudly from the sidelines and trying not to have to play!

Louise Broughton

Conveyancing Practitioner

Hi, I'm Louise, I'm a Conveyancing Practitioner and have been working in the legal and conveyancing realm for over 12 years, in small through to large practices, always with a focus in property law. I have a real passion and appreciation for helping buyers with the exciting, yet sometimes overwhelming, process of getting on the property ladder. Having bought my first residential property at a young age I appreciate that it can seem like a pretty daunting process.
I have lived overseas; both in New York and the Philippines, which helped me really appreciate the beauty of New Zealand.
When I'm not living and breathing property, you'll find me spending time with my husband and our two dogs on the farm or in the kitchen trying out some new recipes.

Connor Jenkins

Office & Trust Account Administrator

Hi, I’m Connor. I am the Office & Trust Account Administrator at Lifestyle Legal Services. I have been handling administrative jobs with Lifestyle Legal Services for the past few years, and after recently graduating from college, I took the opportunity to enter the world of conveyancing to further explore my passion of organization and law.
When I’m not busy tapping away at the keyboard, I’ll usually spend my spare time down at the
hockey turf, where I can be found most nights lending a hand, from officiating hockey matches to ensuring the day-to-day running of the club goes swiftly as a part of the club committee.
