Principle of Leavai Law, Aeau Leota Tima is a Barrister, Solicitor and Accredited Mediator, often seen frequenting Samoa’s Courthouse on civil matters, though she is also a well sought after criminal defense attorney.

“I don’t take this lightly, I am humbled and privileged to be able to serve my village of Falealupo, as well as the Church and my family.
“It is also a blessing to be able to continue the work of my father.. observing his approach to politics over all these years has been an inspiration, and the best learning grounds I could have asked for.”
