I pride myself on my empathy and belief in my clients which comes from my earlier career fighting cases in criminal defence work and civil litigation. A lawyer should be an advocate for those needing help, whether it be an individual facing discrimination or a company fighting a vexatious claim. Your lawyer should also be approachable and I hope to take a friendly and practical approach
