“I thoroughly enjoy working with Family Law because it can literally change people's lives for good or bad, dependent on the lawyer involved – that is a huge responsibility. Finally, an area of law I spend a lot of time in is something called PADJA which is the piece of legislation that keeps those in power, such as government officials, accountable. I’m so pleased to be working within a legal system that has legislation that empowers the public to hold those in power accountable for their actions.”
