I am a senior legal practitioner.

My passion is to provide affordable legal services and advice to people and businesses in need of legal assistance and services.

I believe in clear and uncomplicated legal advice and documentation hence my slogan “Simple is Good”, which I got from a quote by Jim Henson…… Simplifying a problem or an issue makes it easier to understand and resolve.

I am experienced having been a lawyer for almost 26 years and having been practice in Perth for 19 of those 26 years.  The breadth and length of my experience as a lawyer and business owner has given me a depth of knowledge and wisdom that I can and want to share

Call or email me if I can be of any assistance to you.
