“I like to participate when it gets challenging”
I do not shy away from difficult issues, regardless of their complexity. Thinking in solutions is my starting point, measured according to the needs of the client. A practical, workable approach is paramount to me. And it doesn’t always have to be legal. My work experience in business comes in handy in my approach. In that line of work, I learned that contact with the client is of the utmost importance. After all, during the conversations you determine the course together, but more importantly: you identify the client’s feelings concerning the case. In my opinion, if a lawyer is unable to measure that feeling, it is a missed opportunity. Making yourself a business, being bold and passionate is what it’s all about.
