About Me

Prior to becoming a lawyer, I worked briefly in education. Writing and lecturing are still two of my key interests. As well as providing CPD lectures to solicitors and other property professionals, I have appeared on BBC Breakfast and appear frequently in print in relation to Landlord & Tenant matters.
