What do you like best about your job?
Although it is clichéd I like the people the most; even other lawyers. Family Law work often covers emotionally traumatic times of life, yet people frequently rise above it all. To witness clients coming through the process safer, happier and wiser is very satisfying, not least if I have helped them along the way to make the right decisions for themselves and their families.
Why did you become a solicitor?
I thought it was a good idea at the time, but seriously it has been rewarding, interesting and occasionally exciting career. It remains possible to make a difference to people by giving practical advice, being realistic and straight talking.
