Following over 25 years as a litigation lawyer in all areas of personal injury, for both the defendant and plaintiff, it is fulfilling here at Koffels, to be able to truly strive in a pursuit to right wrongs in a meaningful way, extracting the best possible outcome for each client. I am dedicated, determined and disciplined in achieving win/win solutions with a logical application of the law.
With empathy, understanding and focus on my clients as individuals, I work efficiently and diligently to get them the best possible results. I encourage clients to express their needs, and then help them to choose wisely, from the outcomes available to them.
I have always seen the value in developing an innate ability to understand people from the point of view of their differing cultural backgrounds. When you break down barriers to understanding, you can better realise a successful outcome as it relates to their needs, and point of view.
