Election statement 2014

I was elected as a councillor for Berrylands in a by-election in February 2013, following the sad death of Cllr Frances Molesey.

I am a local solicitor and have lived and practised law in the local area for over twenty years.

I decided to start my own practice locally because I wanted to offer quality and care to the local community. I also wanted to be free from pressure to overcharge clients in order to meet the profit and billing targets set up by some of the bigger law firms.

I describe myself as a very community minded person and I try to use my talents to help local people. I have volunteered at the Kingston Law Centre which offers free legal advice to people who cannot afford it.

I have campaigned against cuts to Legal Aid because I believe it is important for everyone to be able to access legal assistance when they need it.

I firmly believe that everyone should have the same start in life. To help meet this locally, I am planning to start a group to teach life skills such as cooking to local children, working with local schools and producers to provide the facilities.

I have fought with local campaigners against the last Labour government’s programmes of Post Office closures.
