Personal Statement

My former career has equipped me with a versatile skill-set and business orientated mindset in devising effective, innovative and practical legal solutions that supports the firm’s clients’ bottom-line. I tailor legal advice in a clear, easily understood and straightforward way knowing our firm’s clients’ interests and businesses move too rapidly to be slowed down by  inefficient and opaque billing methods and non-value added work. The firm’s fixed and stage fee structure allows for more communication in understanding its clients’ issues so that the firm can become part of the solution.
