Areas of practice: Succession Law, Criminal Law, Domestic Violence
Why do you practice in Criminal Law?
Protecting people by defending them in the justice system gives control and self-respect back to people at a time where it feels like they have none. Also, I like to argue.
How do you assist your clients?
Frankly, I get angry when I see this part of a lawyer web-page talking about how clients trust them, they know the areas of law they work in and they have attention to detail. These are the bare minimum standards you should expect from any lawyer who represents you.
I measure my "how" against the standard of work, contact and advice I would expect from the best lawyer I could hire. It’s a high standard and a question I constantly remind myself to ask.
Who are you?
Before law school, I had about 28 jobs in four different industries never sticking to one for longer than a few months or a year. I just could not find the thing that “vibed” with me. Super early in my studies, I started working as a law clerk in a criminal Law and it clicked. I have tried other areas of law (family, international commercial arbitration and property) but would prefer to have my fingernails ripped out then work in those areas again.
