What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I always say I fell into Law, as I kept studying and working in roles I enjoyed.
However, nothing quite beats the feeling of putting a roof over someone’s head, of knowing that I am involved in the process of getting people into homes and properties where they may build a family and create new memories.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I love a puzzle, so when someone comes to me with something unusual or complicated, I like to roll up my sleeves and find the answers.
