“The predominant thing I love about the law is that it provides a means to help people in need within society. I studied law mainly to be able to help people gain access to justice; and to help people and their families through their legal journey. Carroll & O’Dea Lawyers has a culture that fosters community values. It is an open firm that I have found is not just a workplace, but a community of people who are more than willing to lend a hand.”
