About Me


I am a Solicitor with over 30 years experience in the Law.  I entered the legal profession to help people and this is still my motivation and drive.

I am a trained advocate and a trained mind with skills inside and outside the court room. In my 30 years in the legal profession I have seen how important listening, preparation, and experience are and can offer you a comfortable and attentive service, empathic to your needs.
