My approach to working with my clientsI like to create and invest in the relationships I have with my clients. I enjoy getting to know them and spending time understanding their particular needs. I work to provide sound legal and practical advice that is tailored for their circumstances.
The best piece of advice I’ve ever been givenThe only thing that you can control is how you behave and react, take ownership of what you do and be deliberate in how you live life.
What stimulates meMaking a difference whether it’s working to help someone achieve a goal or solve a problem, being a positive impact or influence.
What I enjoy outside of workReading a good (or not so good) book, baking, spending time with friends and family enjoying any food related activities.
If I wasn’t a lawyer I’d...be operating a small bed and breakfast somewhere exotic, or possibly having a go at becoming an actor.
