What do you love most about your job?

I love the opportunity within Group Actions to work with a great team towards a joint goal, and the ability to bring justice to those who would not otherwise have known their entitlement to compensation for the negligence of their former employers.

What do you like to do outside work?

Going to the gym, walking my dog and spending time with friends and family.
