Q and A with Samuel

Why did you become a lawyer?

With both parents being lawyers it seemed the natural choice. I enjoy the challenges faced every day and the variety as well as achieving successful outcomes for our clients.

When you are not being a lawyer what do you like doing most?

Playing a variety of sports, travelling and socialising

Where is your special place in the region?

Anywhere in the outdoors like the south coast, Kaitoke etc..

What is your favourite shop/restaurant?

Ombra on Cuba street, exceptional food. Ekim burgers for something a bit more casual.

How would you describe your style of practice?

Accessible, practical and always available to discuss any matters, looking at your particular circumstances to find a solution which can mean going outside the square somewhat.

If you had to give a first homebuyer a single piece of advice, what would it be?

There is more than one “perfect” house for you, don’t be pressured by vendors, and of course talk to us as soon as possible to ensure you have everything covered.

What is different about the HomeLegal service that makes it so popular?

Everything is taken care of by people who are experienced to deal with any issues that may arise so that the transaction goes smoothly.
