How do you help clients?

I have an overwhelming determination to find the right solution for my clients which I ensure is delivered in a friendly and accessible manner. Clients come first. I put clients at ease with straight talking advice. Having undertaken an apprenticeship through the Institute of Legal Executives before qualifying as a solicitor in 2009, I have over 15 years of experience in dealing with clients in complex litigation. Because of this, I am knowledgeable and capable litigator, dedicated to giving practical and strategic advice to clients.
