About Portia

We're a law firm that grew from the devastating Christchurch earthquakes. During that time a lot of people suffered hardship, and our founder Erin Ebborn wanted to ensure that legal aid was available to everyone. In the years since, Portia (formerly Ebborn Law) has grown with a central city office and branches in Timaru and Blenheim.

Portia provides a variety of legal services and we focus on legal aid. That's your guarantee of quality, as the Ministry of Justice audit our services to ensure we are at the top of our game! Law firms that don't provide legal aid do not have that extra layer of oversight from the government.

We can help with employment disputes (legal aid available), ACC problems (legal aid available), domestic violence (legal aid available) and a range of family law matters (yes! legal aid available!).

Give us a call. Our phones are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week and the phone call is free.
