"As a litigation lawyer, my job is to resolve disputes for my clients. Often, people are intimidated by the cost and complexity of the legal system. The question I get asked the most is ‘Do I need a lawyer?’ If you’re wondering about this, let’s talk. We can confidentially discuss your situation and I will help you understand your legal position."
