It is rewarding to be able to listen to my clients, being able to connect with them and assist them in achieving their goals. It is especially important when dealing with clients that are experiencing a recent bereavement to be sensitive to what they are going through and to be able to provide them with the reassurance that they can rely on me to effectively handle the management of their matters with their best interests at heart.
My ability to listen, analyse and communicate effectively. As a lawyer working across probate and estates and all other matters in the practice I need to be able to both connect and empathise with clients, and look at any given situation from an analytical perspective to ensure I am always able to secure the best possible outcome for my clients.
