My proudest accomplishment is...

Having three grown up children who are all kind and generous to others, who want to spend time with each other and me, and who still, on the odd occasion, laugh at my jokes!

Also, I have to say; taking on, running and making a success of my own legal practice. I am proud of and grateful to my superb staff for their part in this too.

What skill would you like to master?

I have relatively recently taken up Ballroom and Latin Dancing and started entering competitions. I would love to keep improving at this.

What skill have you yet to master?

There are many, but, work-related, I never manage to have a tidy desk.

What do you like about being a lawyer?

Having knowledge of the rules about certain areas of life, and then using that knowledge to help people achieve something or get out of difficulty. 25+ years down the line and I still get a buzz from being able to provide someone with the answers to their problem.

If you didn’t do this job, what would you have liked to do?

Wildlife cameraman or photographer – to go to wild places and take beautiful pictures of creatures in their natural surroundings would be awesome!

What are three interesting facts about you?

  • I once worked for the Queen Mother.
  • Before turning to the law as a career, I was on my way to becoming an officer in the Royal Artillery.
  • In my spare time, I am working on a series of children’s books and a board game.
