First, I’m commercially minded, as evidenced by having built and run a business involving three separate Law Practices and two internet Law Practices.

I am an approachable, open minded and fair person who loves the unusual and the challenging. Yet I am tenacious when it comes to ensuring satisfying outcomes for clients… bullies do not fare well with me.

As a family man concerned with social issues, I have been a member of Lions Club for Ten Years and have acted on nonprofit and charitable organisations. And lastly, I have a vintage car which is my distraction and labour of love.

There is no substitute for a personal conversation
