WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS?
I view my positive attitude as the key to my success. It is the key to everything that I do and has also led me to value Alternative Dispute Resolution in assisting parties to reach reasonable settlements in an amicable and cost-effective manner. My positive and empathic attitude flows into my negotiation and mediation tactics and has always resulted in a fair outcome for my clients.
WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?
I am passionate about campaigning for people in society who feel that they do not have a voice, including those within the LGBT community. I am constantly partnering with various organizations and community support networks to ensure that people feel supported and have access to legal representation.
