David is Managing Director of Carr Richards Solicitors and has over 36 years of experience in residential and commercial property matters. He also has extensive experience in matters relating to Will and Probate.
David’s first degree was in psychology from London University and the early part of his career was in education, teaching in various London schools, but also as a lecturer in psychology at City University.
