Why I'm no ordinary professional:

My keys focuses are on attention to detail and client satisfaction. I always ensure that my work is not only carried out to the highest standard but also that my clients truly feel they have been provided with an outstanding level of service and one that caters to their individual needs.

I also believe in building ongoing relationships, I give my direct dial out at the beginning of a matter to ensure every client knows I am available to speak to when they need.

A bit about me

Do you have any hobbies and what are they?

I am a big fan of live music, so will travel the length and breadth of the country to go out of my way to see artists live, whether they are my favourite band in a large venue or a new artist in a small venue.

If you weren’t a lawyer what would you be doing?

More than likely a career that allowed me to travel around the world, to see new places and try the interesting local food and drink available.

What is your favourite quote?
