I obtained LLB in 2004 from the University of Nottingham. I obtained PCLL in 2005 from HKU. I was called to the Bar in 2006. I was one of those who designed the HKU PCLL personal injuries course in 2008 - 2009. I was accredited as a general mediator in 2011 by HKIAC. I obtained Masters in Counselling in 2012 from the University of Monash. I received family mediation training from the Family Welfare Society. I was accredited as a family mediator in 2013 by HKIAC. I am a general and family mediator of the HKMAAL. I am an editor of the LexisNexis Dispute Resolution module. I am married with 2 kids.
As a barrister in 601 Dina House, I am often instructed to work on general civil and personal injuries cases. I am also regularly instructed to conduct criminal trials and appeals. As a mediator, I stay mindful to the legal and psychological aspects of the case. People become angry or depressed due to legal disputes. I think psychotherapeutic techniques are very helpful.
