An undoubted highlight was being thanked by a musician in his album sleeve for the legal assistance and representation I had provided. It was nice to be thanked in the same album sleeve as Bob Dylan and Richard Hawley. He also gave me a signed copy of (the man that signed Oasis and Primal Scream) Creation records boss Alan McGee’s autobiography as he also represented the singer.
I was also instructed to represent and defend a member of the criminal bar.
I love music and my favourite thing to do is attending gigs whenever I can.
I try and play Football but when I’m watching the professionals follow Burnley F.C. I am also a big cricket fan and try to attend England Test Matches at least once a year.
