First and foremost I enjoy criminal law – whether I am giving a client advice, negotiating with a prosecutor or appearing at Court...I really enjoy what I do.
This job gives me an opportunity to help people achieve the best possible outcome, no matter who they are or where they come from. To me that’s what justice really is!
