I have something extra to offer the aviation client in that I have worked within the aviation industry and understand aviation and aviation people. You don't have to pay for the time required to educate a lawyer in your area of expertise. I will understand what you are talking about.


I went solo in 1966, gained a Private Pilot Licence (Aeroplane) in 1967 and by 1975 had a Commercial Pilot Licence (Aeroplane) and 'B' cat and 'D' cat instructor ratings and a towing rating. I also hold a Qualified Glider Pilot certificate and have held a 'C' cat gliding instructor rating. I have over 3000 hours as pilot in command on aeroplanes and have flown many types of aeroplane and glider. I have sampled: paragliding, ballooning, parachuting and helicopters.


I completed a BA, LLB & law professionals in 1980 and set up my own firm in 1985. I have 38 years of aviation law experience.


My experience and expertise were recognised in August 2018 when I was elected to a Membership of the Royal Aeronautical Society (MRAeS).

  • I have 38 years legal experience in the office and courtroom and have held a CPL (A) and ‘B’ and ‘D’ cat instructor ratings since 1975.
  • I have acted for clients with a wide range of legal problems including aviation law problems.
  • My combination of legal and aviation experience gives me the edge when it is needed and it makes communication with clients more efficient and good outcomes more likely.
