I am the managing senior Partner of the firm. I graduated from Aberystwyth University and joined the firm as a trainee solicitor in 1981, I have experience in most areas of law. I now specialise in Crime, Conveyancing, Public Childcare Law, Employment Law and Private Client.
I have been a qualified police station representative for almost 30 years and a member of the police and court duty solicitor panel for that period. Since attaining my Higher Rights of Audience I have appeared regularly in the Crown Court dealing with a wide range of Criminal matters, I also appear regularly in the Family Court dealing with Contested Child care proceedings.
I am a former County Borough Councillor and a former member of both the North Wales Police and North Wales Fire authority. Whilst a County Councillor I chaired the Licencing committee during the difficult period involving the introduction of 24 hour Licencing and the responsibility of Licencing transferring to the Local Authority.
Now that I no longer have any Council commitments I have a little more time to devote to my hobbies (although not as much time as I would like). My hobbies are sport, watching rather than playing these days, rugby is my passion but I also enjoy Soccer
I am a Qualified Squash Coach, having played for many years in the North West Counties and North Wales Squash Leagues, and competed in tournaments in Europe . My ambition is to watch a British Lions tour in South Africa having been fortunate enough to have attended the tours of New Zealand and Australia.
I am proud of the high level of service Quality Solicitors Hopleys GMA offers to our clients, we are constantly striving to improve our service and efficiency to make your experience with us as stress free as possible.
