The recent Supreme Court guidance on s 27 reports in Berkland v R  NZSC 143 on 7 December 2022 is both timely and welcomed.
The guidance help better achieve s 27's three-purpose framework of community engagement, eliciting offender background and exploration of sentencing options.
We are wholeheartedly committed to helping the sentencing judge establish the causative contribution of the offender's background to the offending through our s 27 reports.

Why choose us
Cultural sensitivity and competence
Our report writers possess the appropriate skill and knowledge specific to various cultures and have the capacity to meaningfully communicate in cultural settings other than their own. We utilise cues gathered from subtle cultural variation in our clients' beliefs and activities to improve cross-cultural communication. We appreciate the values, beliefs and norms characteristic of all cultural and ethnic groups and attune our behaviour accordingly.
Our reports undergo rigorous quality assurance procedures that ensures the final report is semantically and substantively immaculate.
Balancing offenders' rights with victims' rights
A reliable report produced by best practices in psychological interviewing methodologies ensures the authenticity of the reports. It captures compelling narratives while reducing uncorroborated and speculative narratives. This results in the most equitable sentencing outcomes that reduces offenders' sentences while upholding victims' rights.
... ingrained, systemic poverty resulting from loss of land, language, culture, rangatiratanga, mana and dignity are matters that may be regarded in a proper case to have impaired choice and diminished moral culpability. Where these constraints are shown to contribute causatively to offending ... they will require consideration in sentencing.
