I became a family lawyer because I wanted a career where I could genuinely help people.
It has been, and continues to be, an absolute privilege to help people through what is often the most difficult and emotionally distressing period of their lives, filled with uncertainty and, often, a feeling of disempowerment.
To see a matter to conclusion and being integral to giving back to clients a sense of certainty and emotional strength is very rewarding.
