Why chose Mulberry’s?
I practice employment law because I have a passion for it. Because I believe that law is a vocation not just a business.
I left traditional legal practice because so that I could focus on what I believe to my role: to serve my clients and my community. Without the constraints of billable hours and fee targets I felt liberated to focus on the work of helping clients.
I studied law for over 7 years and lectured in employment law as a Senior Lecturer for 4 years and have practised for nearly 20 years. I know the subject in depth and still find it fascinating and more importantly relevant.
I adopted environmentally sensitive practices right from the start and by making best use of technology have always been able to advise clients remotely, making access easy for those who can’t attend offices due to caring responsibilities or disability. I wanted to make access to legal advice as easy and efficient as possible.
Almost everyone will have a job during their lifetime and many others will become employers. We spend more time at work than in any other endeavour. Work not only touches our lives but shapes them. It shapes our communities and our societies. So, work must be fair, safe and equal if our societies are to be so. It is in the field of work that issues of equality and fairness are fought for and won or lost.
I believe that everyone deserves dignity at work, and I work just as hard for clients on the minimum wage as those in executive positions. I act for both employers and employees because I believe that having a balanced view of the world of work informs a balanced approach to resolving employment disputes.
I am motivated by a desire to help people in times of crisis. To reassure, to guide, to give comfort and to give solid accurate advice to everyone, whatever their background and their means.
