I chose to specialise in employment law because it’s all about people. No two cases are ever the same, and the clients I work for vary hugely from local authorities to large employers in the private sector, like British Airways and Arriva. I also help growing businesses and charities, as well as individual claimants looking for fair treatment from their employers.
If you have an employment issue, I think about what you may need in advance and will come up with solutions tailored to you and your circumstances. I’m very practical and experienced, as well as extremely approachable, reassuring and non-judgemental. It’s important to me that you know that I’m on your side.
I help people to make wise decisions that they can live with. Where I can, both inside and outside of work, I will help people gain skills so that they get the best out of both their working lives and personal lives.
Ask for advice early and you’ll save time and money later on.
Don’t make all of your decisions before you seek advice! I could help you find a better solution.
Try to see what the other person is trying to achieve, then use that to try to agree a way forward.
Have you got a few minutes?
I’ve always got time for my clients, no matter what your query. Drop me an email or give me a call if you have a quick question, or we can set up a meeting if it turns out to be a bit more in-depth.
Can you help with this?
My team and I can almost certainly help! Let me know what the issue is and I’ll tell you what might be involved.
