What was your first ever job?
Clerk at Lancashire County Council.
What was your worst experienceas a trainee?
My first appearance before a judge, which was supposed to be in chambers, but for which I ended up fully robed in open court. Looking back it was daunting; at the time it was downright frightening.
Where's the best place to go if you want to find out what's really going on in the office?
I've heard it's the ladies' toilets, but I keep to the pub over the road.
What time do you usually leave the office?
What do you do at weekends?
Fishing, shooting, walking dogs and occupying the children. Anything but work.
What's your favourite restaurant?
No particular favourite.
If you weren't a lawyer, what would you have been?
Who was your mentor or role model?
Tony Proctor, a first-rate registrar who later became a first-rate judge.
What's the best thing about your job?
Beating fraudulent claimants.
What's the toughest thing about your job?
Beating fraudulent claimants. They're getting ever more sophisticated.
What's your biggest work/career mistake and what did you learn from it?
Following the herd rather than my own instinct on an important business decision. On occasions it's best to keep your own counsel.
What car(s) do you drive?
Renault estate, with room for the dogs.
What book are you currently reading?
Memories, Dreams, Reflections by Carl Jung.
What's on your CD player at the moment?
Beethoven - The Late String Quartets.
