As a business advisor to her clients, Alana provides a unique approach which focuses on holistic legal guidance delivered in a down-to-earth and realistic manner.

On A Personal Note...

Alana is an avid reader and cannot resist purchasing books. She also loves all things related to travel and has done so extensively (although hard to decide, her most memorable trips to date having been to South Africa and India). Recently, she started playing the piano again, having stopped when she graduated high school. She is not (yet) leaving law to become a musician.
