Telephone: (08) 9193 5915

Nick is plagued with the unusual mental disposition of enjoying court hearings. His ears prick up every time he hears any combination of “trial”, “hearing”, “urgent”, and “tomorrow”, and this enthusiasm has not diminished after four years of appearances.

Unless you are a masochist or want to lose the next hour of your life, avoid mentioning “the gym”, “PBs”, “Dota2” or “the Joe Rogan podcast” in Nick’s presence. You have been warned.
