I have recently joined Everingham Solomons where I work in the litigation and business law team.

I moved to Tamworth in 2019 to join my wife who works at a local secondary school. I have felt warmly welcomed by the local community and I am thoroughly enjoying the lifestyle offered in Tamworth.

Prior to moving to here, I worked in Sydney at one of Australia’s largest commercial law firms where I focused on commercial litigation and business transactions. This included resolving contractual disputes, engaging with regulatory bodies, and preparing contracts/other business documents. I also spent one year working at a youth legal centre where I practised in criminal law. I believe this broad experience has prepared me to meet the diverse legal needs of the local community.

I completed my law degree at the University of New South Wales. Prior to that, I completed a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Sydney where I studied history and government.

In my spare time I like to stay active by walking my dog, playing team sports, cycling and losing golf balls.

I pursued a career in law because I enjoy helping people and advocating for their interests. For me, a good lawyer is someone who listens, understands their client’s objectives and turns that into practical outcomes. I look forward to doing this for the local community as part of the Everingham Solomons team, where Helping You is Our Business.
