Cherie Adams


Cherie is a second-year law student at the University of Auckland completing a conjoint degree in politics and history. Her role in legal administration supports our dynamic office in many ways, from liaising with clients, courts, and prosecution to managing legal documents and databases. Her experience in customer services and the Police 111 communications centre has allowed her to develop a calming presence over the phone and the ability to collate information shared by you over a phone discussion.

Cherie often finds herself with family and friends in her spare time, following international court cases and finding new activities. She is set on becoming a criminal defence lawyer and feels the opportunity provided by Kilian & Associates to work in this environment has been a crucial step in her journey

Your first point of call, as our client, will be the office where Cherie 'mans the fort'. She will keep you up to speed with your upcoming court appearances, setting meetings and helping where possible.

Miles joined Kilian & Associates in late 2022 as a Law Clerk. Prior to this, Miles worked as a Deputy Registrar in the criminal jurisdiction of the Auckland District Court where she gained extensive courtroom and case management experience in the summary, Crown jury and specialist therapeutic courts.
