Judge Brown's legacy lives on, and for Rosie Abbott, it's because of Brown why she finished Law School.
She says, “He cared about his work. Some lawyers in court or in prisons just did what they had to do. But he cared about the families involved, the person, the hapū which is exactly what a lawyer is meant to do.”
Shane White says, “We met back in the days. I stood before him when I was a youngster up to no good. I remember he wanted to help me and not to punish me for my wrong-doings but to put me on the right track.”
Judge Mick Brown will be taken to Waikumete Cemetery to be laid to rest.
