I view myself and my job as being the ultimate guide, standing steadfast beside my clients and navigating them through the often intricate and challenging paths of the legal process. My pride lies in the relationship I develop with clients, providing unwavering support and aiming to steer them through this journey with minimal stress and maximum transparency, ensuring they feel empowered to achieve the best possible outcome.

My journey started as a Law Clerk at Braye Cragg while completing my university studies. I consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to balance my studies and practical experience in my hometown. Today, I find fulfilment in utilising my local connections to serve the Newcastle community, alleviating some of the legal burdens my clients face.

With diverse legal knowledge and a keen understanding of how clients navigate the legal process, I am well-equipped to anticipate and address their needs. My ability to explain complex legal concepts and prepare clients for what lies ahead is instrumental in fostering confidence and clarity.
