Saunders & Co - Adele Mitchell

Adele Mitchell joined Saunders & Co in May 2017 with a focus on immigration law, having specialised in this field since her admission to the bar in 2005.


She provides migrants with a range of services from the outset of their migration to New Zealand, to guiding them towards obtaining residency and citizenship.


Adele particularly enjoys handling complex applications such as medical and character waivers, over-staying, Section 61 requests, complaints to the Office of the Ombudsman and special direction applications to the Minister of Immigration.


She takes a pragmatic approach to providing immigration advice to both individual and corporate clients.


Having lived as an exchange student in Japan she can sympathize with negotiating life in another country. She understands that the immigration process involves inherent uncertainty and that careful negotiation of complex law and policy is required.


She is approachable, professional, analytical and always gives her best to clients.


Adele can also offer all her clients assistance with general legal matters including ...

  • property sale and purchases
  • commercial matters
  • wills
  • and other everyday legal matters.


Family life takes up much of Adele’s time out of the office. She loves a challenge, including building an energy efficient house, learning French with her children and challenging herself in the gym. She can deadlift and squat her own bodyweight and is currently working on mastering pull-ups.
