Background

Anna approaches her work with a mind for detail and a priority for each person’s individual voice and story. Criminal law is a fundamentally people-focused area of the law and good advocacy requires empathy, passion, adaptability and a keen sense of justice. Anna also believes defence lawyers have a responsibility to make the law and court processes as accessible as possible. So people are able to make clear, informed decisions about their matters without confusion or fear of the unknown getting in the way.

Outside of practicing law Anna enjoys an active lifestyle, filling most of her spare time competing in one sport or another, cooking or playing guitar. Ask her what ultimate frisbee is if you have a spare minute…or twenty.
