Adele says she was attracted to the legal profession because the law is constantly changing and evolving meaning that every day is different. She enjoys the fact that no two cases are the same and each have their own challenges. Adele also said "I hope to specialise in Wills and Probate or Family Law. I particularly enjoy these areas of law as I gain a great deal of satisfaction of being part of a team that guides people through the most difficult times of their lives, helping them to achieve an agreeable outcome for all at the conclusion of matters.
In her spare time Adele enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She is also a keen cook and baker. Adele is a lover of dogs and enjoys going for long walks and exploring new places.
