Me in a minute

I wanted to work with people, I wanted to help people and that's what family law is all about. For me it's really rewarding. 

When I'm not at work then I want to spend my time outdoors, I'm a real outdoor person. With the family, with the dog, going swimming or for walks, getting muddy and enjoying the countryside and all it has to offer.
