More about Jack

We asked Jack:

What can clients expect from you?

I always put myself in my clients shoes. I strive to provide a service whereby my clients find it easy to approach me about anything and can fully understand and trust my advice.

I aim to be empathetic and understanding but will keep it professional by being completely upfront and honest with them at all times.

What do you love about your job?

I love that I can make a real difference and have a positive impact on the lives of clients who are going through a very emotional and difficult period of their life, sometimes their lowest. This is very rewarding and something I am passionate about.

I also find the medicine and the human body fascinating and love grappling complex medical and legal issues.

I come from a working-class background and was the first in my family to go to university and become a lawyer. I realise I am in a privileged position going to work and doing something I love every day!

What are your interests outside work?

Outside work my main interests involve sports, being a huge supporter of Hull City AFC and Hull Kingston Rovers. I enjoy playing football when my dodgy knee allows me to, having played most of my life.

My livewire Cockapoo, Dottie, keeps me entertained and because of her I have found a new love of the outdoors and going on long walks.

I love spending time with my family, which is soon to be expanded as I become a first-time dad to a little boy.

I also enjoy music and attending gigs.
