I am delighted to take up the role as Practice Director with Vibe Legal and look forward to meeting all our clients in the coming months.
I was educated in Ireland and hold a first class honours degree in legal and business studies and a post graduate law degree . After graduating, I practiced as a general commercial lawyer before moving to Perth with my wife Lindsay in 2012, via a stop in Las Vegas to get married.
Ironically, I have since gained several years’ experience practicing in family law and outside of law, my wife and our 2 young children keep me busy.
Before joining Vibe, I also took a short 6-month career detour, to take up a role as a banking and finance lawyer with a national top tier firm, which was an invaluable experience and helped me re-discover my passion for commercial law.
Over the last 10 years, I have developed a collaborative approach to law (where possible), and at Vibe, our clients can expect practical, commercially focused advice and a professional service at all times.

As one of the team at Vibe Legal I am certainly looking forward to meeting and working with our new clients and to help them resolve the legal challenges they may have.
Prior to coming to the law, I had an amazing career in the Australian military as well as a number of senior roles within the building, manufacturing, banking and hospitality industries. These experiences provided me with a diverse set of skills in building an understanding of what the client is wanting and how we might simply solve the problem.
Following this period I thought a change of direction was needed and with the support of my wife Anita and our 2 children I went back to University to complete my law degree and coupled that with running my own consultancy to fill in the spare time.
Working at Vibe is the achievement of a goal for me personally and being able to work with clients who are looking for help makes it a great thing to do every day. The direction of our business is to provide that quality of service in a personal way and for me that is how the law should be for people looking for help.
As Commercial Director, I apply my vast experience as a qualifiable success as a business owner and commercial manager, having created and sold several professional consulting businesses in the past.
Applying more than 29 years’ experience in business development and professional services to a wide range of industries, I thrive on understanding client needs and creating valuable solutions that drive business results.
Personally, I consistently deploy strong ideas, integrate teams that move to create solutions to help transform client organisations and expectations. My belief that no one individually can act as a whole and that collaboration, which is inherent in Vibe Legal’s culture, is embraced every day to bring the greatest benefit to clients.
