I specialise in construction law. I’ve been practising it for over 10 years where I help homeowners, builders, and contractors every day with their legal situations.

In my years of practising construction law, I’ve played various roles in the construction industry. I’ve been both Government solicitor and corporate legal counsel. I even served as Division President and Councillor of Master Builders Association NSW.
