I always pursue the most cost-effective option of settlement for my clients
I enjoy practising family law because I can make a difference in people’s lives and helping people in the path where the end result can have a significant impact throughout their lives.
I am interested in complex property and parenting matters.
Many of the issues I deal with are very emotional in nature this is mainly because the clients are often afraid of the unknown journey ahead of them in their legal matter. I like helping clients achieve happy outcomes that allow them to move on and live their lives.
I always pursue the most cost-effective option of settlement for my clients either by negotiating, mediation, conciliation or arbitration. However, there are situations where a judicial resolution is the only available option, and I love assisting my clients should their matter lead to the litigation path.
