“I particularly enjoy Family Law as it is a unique area of law which deals with the most vulnerable area of peoples’ lives – their family and their finances.

I am exceptionally approachable and I enjoy working with people during their most challenging times, to achieve an outcome where they can look forward to the next chapter of their life.”

Gary is determined to listen to your problems and provide you with realistic legal advice which sometimes may be difficult to consider, but ultimately would be in the best interests of your family.
