Liesel can quickly deal with the crux of the matter, she is also thorough, and keeps the big long term picture in mind.


While Liesel can quickly deal with the crux of the matter, she is also thorough and keeps the big long-term picture in mind.

She is careful to examine the elements of each offence and to provide sound and realistic advice on how each case should be handled (whether charges may be challenged; exploring possibilities for a swift closure of prosecution; actions to take for effective mitigation) – there is no one size fits all, and every detail is important.
