After an education in economics followed by law school in Utrecht and Amsterdam and having worked in the business sector for some years I have been working as a lawyer since 1979. In 1991 I started the office on the Schoterweg 12 Haarlem located at the former location of Villa Trompenburg. Our office has taken its name from there.
My practice includes counseling and procedures in several areas, including employment law for both employers and employees, tenancy law and support for entrepreneurs in SMEs. My basic principle is that if possible disputes can be settled outside of court but when necessary to  deal with a case in court as quickly as possible.
In addition, I keep myself busy with family law and in some cases with criminal law.
In my spare time sport has an important role in my life, especially in terms of governance. I have various positions and for several years I am president of a professional sports association in Haarlem, so I also have regular meetings with other associations and the municipality of Haarlem on professional sports.
