I work with clients in three areas:
I try to remove as much stress as possible by offering clear, pragmatic advice based on my experience to get the best outcomes for clients.
If you choose to work with me I’ll give you direct, positive advice about what you should do and the reasons why. My strong grasp of legal principles and commitment to staying up-to-date mean you will get good advice from the outset, increasing your chances of an early result that you are happy with, or can live with.
If you want to work with a lawyer who will look to remove your stress by unravelling the issues, breaking them down and resolving them, then I can help. Clients say I take ‘prompt action’ and that my advice is ‘clear and thorough’.
