“I specialise in employment and general civil litigation. My background is in general business consultancy and employment relations advocacy, which I did for nearly 30 years. Having a law degree just adds a little extra credibility.

“Winning for me is achieving my clients' objectives and achieving whatever success looks like to them. Personally, I consider litigation as a last resort for clients and something that should only be engaged in when necessary. I’m very good at facilitation, mediation and negotiation and I use these as an alternative to litigation to help my clients achieve a practical and cost effective solution to their legal problems . I’m also an industrial relations expert and enjoy bargaining and working through issues with unions.” 

“I chose to be part of the Neilsons Lawyers team because of its values. The law and people’s access to justice is important to us. It’s not just about fees. We understand the difference a good lawyer can make and pride ourselves on delivering an excellent and personalised service to all of our clients. Customer care and customer service are always will be the most important parts of my practice.”
