As the son of enterprising parents, I inherited an independent spirit through my upbringing. This includes, perhaps paradoxically, knowing when not to do something yourself. The right advice at the right time is invaluable.
I keep that in mind in my legal profession. Wherever possible, I do not exclude my clients from their case but include them in the process. This means that I provide them with well-founded advice on the basis of which they can make a decision that suits their situation.
I also like to share my knowledge as a university guest lecturer and speaker at conferences. In the latter capacity, I often face the challenge of enthusing laymen for legal issues.
For the rest, I also act as chairman of the Complaints Committee for undesirable behavior for the Christian Education Group. In this position, I contribute to a safe and healthy working environment for students and employees of COG.
