I was sworn in as a lawyer in November 1986, on the same day as my collegue Geertruid van Wassenaer. After a long period in general practice and bankruptcy law, I began to specialize in personal injury law and worked with Beer Lawyers for ten years (from 2004 to 2013). I have cooperated extensively with lawyers from abroad (for instance, while working for victims of the Turkish Airlines crash at Schiphol Airport in 2009), which has broadened my view and contributed to my expertise. In addition to working in the field of personal injury, I have been involved with the Dutch Association for Lawyers, and am active in the Dutch Association of Plaintiff Lawyers (ASP). Since 2013 I have been secretary of De Stichting Fonds Toegang tot het Recht (www.toegangrecht.nl), a foundation for legal aid. I am also active in various social organisations, including serving on the supervisory board of Public Housing and Social Welfare.
I am dedicated to guiding my clients through a particulalry vulnerable period of their lives with clarity and compassion.
