As founder and Principal of the firm, Jack has been a lawyer for over a decade which puts him well past young (despite some kind client comments which he shamelessly eats up) after you do the maths and has involved himself with all the areas of practice mentioned in the other page but his main kick out of being a lawyer is the client interaction and being part of the ride with them. His main aim and constant reminder to office staff is to “Make it as simple and little reading as possible for our clients because sorting out the complexity is what we do and what we’re here for.”
He’ll tell you about how he come about the Michael Clarke signed cricket bat hanging in his office and don’t even mention the golf but is apparently still afraid of heights after doing a bungee jump and skydiving 5 hours apart on the same day. Food, dogs, travel and karaoke (just quietly) also hit a high note with him and although he quite fancies himself with a microphone with/without dutch courage we’re going to leave the scoring to the audience.
A self-proclaimed Sydney Good Food Guide expert, Melissa boasts a critique which expands abroad and still harbors the dream of conquering the $50 Ramen Noodle Challenge. While she isn’t busy being a lawyer advancing her clients matters ranging from property/commercial transactions to litigation and family law matters of all types to fund a healthy work life balance her other interests include international movies, absolutely all forms of retail therapy and all occasions that involve friends/family gatherings.
Frequently described as a polite and cheerful individual/lawyer with ninja efficiency by clients and randoms alike, office colleagues have often wandered whether her sprightly personality will lead her to being the next big thing as a game show host or No.1 contestant in Takeshi’s Castle but fortunately for our clients and her colleagues while Melissa admits that it may have crossed her mind she has confirmed that her current gig provides her with all the professional surprises, challenges and satisfaction she needs in a neat 8-5 bottle!
