After graduating from university the doors of a big city law firm opened. It was glamorous and demanding, the kind of place high achievers strive to enter. In return for our total dedication, we were promised handsome rewards. But something (everything?) felt wrong. Perhaps for the first time I realised the choices I made would determine how fulfilling my life would be. I realised my interest in the law was never to serve corporations, it had always been to help people. And so I followed a new path into a very successful and deeply satisfying career as a barrister, specialising in the most heavy of human law: child protection, crime, family law, discrimination and intervention orders.
