It has been an interesting journey to get to the point of writing this, my first blog. Whilst Long Legal is only a few months old, it has taken 25 years to get here.
This started with studying Urban & Regional Planning at UNE in Armidale commencing in 1989 as a 17 year old. I went on to work as a Town Planner in the private and public sector doing Strategic and Development Assessment work. I also had the privilege of appearing as an expert witness in the Land & Environment Court.
Then came Law at Macquarie University in Sydney and a stint as Corporate Lawyer for one of the largest councils in the state as well as being Principal at Law & Planning.
Over the years, I have had the pleasure to work with some exceptional professionals who became great mentors. I have also made many lifelong friendships. There are so many people to thank for being here that if I list names, I am sure to miss several. So instead, thank you to everyone for helping me make this happen.
