What makes me tick?
From an early age I have always enjoyed matching my wits against people and trying to find loopholes in arguments. This probably influenced my decision to become a lawyer and has served me well.
I am a highly-motivated, competitive and determined individual who always aims to get the best possible outcome for my client.
I strive to differentiate myself from other lawyers by giving practical, no-nonsense, down-to-earth advice based on real-life experience – an alternative outlook that can often give clients a competitive edge in disputes.
I started my legal career as the assistant to a Partner in a large local firm, giving me early exposure to high-value and complex litigation matters. Using this vital experience, I progressed to handling my own mutli-track caseload. Since joining James Legal, I have continued to develop professionally and strive to put my knowledge and experience to good use for the benefits of my clients.
Outside of work
I am a keen footballer and play five-a-side in a local league on a Wednesday night. I am also an avid Manchester United fan and still harbour hopes of playing for them!
