"People want a Lawyer who communicates well and who keeps them in the loop - someone they can actually get hold of when they need to - and that's my aim",
"At ABKJ, you won’t find us to be remote or aloof. We are proficient at what we do, but we can relate to our clients and their needs"
"Every law firm says they are 'focused on outcomes', and of course that’s what people expect. At ABKJ we are a good deal more than that. We achieve those outcomes in close consultation with the client."
"It’s about having that rapport with the client - they know that if they need to reach me, I am going to be there with good practical advice. It’s as much about communication and skills in dealing with people as it is about the law".
