Tim’s Reflections:

  • All people charged with a criminal offence have a right to have their side of the story heard. I enjoy the challenge of giving my clients a voice within the criminal justice system and helping them through a difficult and stressful time in their lives.
  • It is inspiring to work with a team of lawyers so committed to providing the highest quality representation to people from all sections of the community.
  • I aim to approach my job with a sound knowledge of the law and an open mind about the facts.
