Need More Help?

Whilst this website aims to give general advice of a legal nature it is no substitute for seeing a specialist lawyer. However, not all lawyers are the same. In my years of practice I am afraid to say that I have come across some shocking lawyers and have heard horror stories from people who have made a bad choice in who to instruct.

Finding a good lawyer can be tricky unless you have a personal recommendation. The purpose of this section of the website is for me to give you my personal recommendations for who to instruct. As you can appreciate everyone I recommend must come up to my "approachable" standards. Click on the "Other Approachable Lawyers" tab to your right to find my list of recommendations.

By way of further help, I also have a section devoted to other non-legal businesses who I have used or who have been well recommended to me. You can find a list of these businesses under the "Approachable Business Contacts" tab to your right.

And finally, I am an avid reader of business books. But if you walk into Borders or Whitcoulls you will be met by a sea of business books all claiming to make you super profits or turn you into great business leaders. Some are good, others are not so good. My personal favourites are listed under "Recommended Business Books".

If you have any suggestions for adding to any of these three sections then I would be delighted to find out more. Just use the contact form on this website.
