I’ve been a Solicitor at Wallace & Wallace for 10 years now having originally grown up in the small close knit community of Dysart.  Having that background means that not only am I familiar with the local coalfields area but I quite often meet clients who I have known for many years.  I now consider myself a local in Mackay having lived here with my family for over 25 years.  I enjoy catching up with people I already know and I also enjoy meeting new clients from all walks of life.

Being able to provide a personal and helpful service to my clients in a way that it is easily understood is my priority.  Whether it’s achieving the outcome my clients hope and expect to offering alternative solutions to difficult problems is something I enjoy doing in my daily work life.  Being primarily an estate planning and estate administration lawyer allows me to guide clients through the emotional and often the most stressful period of their lives and I hope that my personal approach to their matter provides some comfort during those times.

In my ordinary life you will probably find me outdoors having recently completed my hike across Spain on the Camino de Santiago or on a local hike in our beautiful region of Mackay.  I am an avid supporter of animal rescue being the former secretary of Mackay Animal Rescue Society (MARS) which I continue to support.
