'Scaiff are a great firm to work for and a good fit for me. The values centre on client care and whilst we are a business, we offer something that has been lost in many corporate firms.'

'I enjoy helping people move forward during what is likely to be one of the most difficult periods of their lives. I look to find the most practical and cost effective solutions whilst achieving the best results I can. Obviously the work I do is very sensitive and emotional, and I feel that I have a good empathy with my clients. I would say one of my strengths is building relationships with clients which builds trust.'
