Q&A

It is well established that the most successful medical treatment is prevention. The same concept applies to a person’s legal well-being. We like to anticipate and prevent legal risks from becoming legal problems. We like to present the legal risks to our clients and make recommendation for action.

Helping people with their legal issues motivated me most to get into law. I strongly believe most of the time there are better ways to solve legal problems than going to court. I thrive on educating my clients and making sure they understand their options and can make an informed decision.

We’ll always do our best to help you face your legal situation with knowledge and confidence. We take the time to tell you upfront exactly what our work will cost before we do the work. We offer flexible opening times so you can see a lawyer out of hours or on a Saturday morning.
