Practical, Jargon Free Advice
I pride myself on my ability to give up to date, jargon free and pertinent legal advice and representation, relevant to the fast moving and modern business and working world in which we live.
I aim to give you practical advice without cautiously sitting on the fence when considering with you your best options and will help you face the sometimes tough decisions that you or your business may need to take.

I appreciate that I will be acting for you in what will often be highly stressful situations. You can rest assured that you will receive a patient empathetic service to guide and support you through the challenges you may be facing.
Working With You
My goal is to work with you to ensure your cases and matters are handled with the utmost care and professionalism to the highest standard. I don’t just act for you, I act with you, eliciting relevant key information, outlining your options and providing you with the support you need at each stage of the case, so I can guide you towards an optimal outcome whilst giving you a clear insight into the strategy that has been adopted. Together, we will evaluate your options and find the right solution for your legal needs and challenges.
Private and Confidential
Your privacy and confidentiality will be respected at all times. Unlike non- lawyer Claims Consultancies, you will have the protection of legal professional privilege that gives you strict confidentiality of your communications with me and you can be assured that any privileged information will not be shared with any unauthorised parties.
