William Kontaxis has wanted to be a lawyer since he was 12, and after studying business and law has fulfilled his dream and made it as a corporate lawyer.
But he is a corporate lawyer with a conscience, working for Salvos Legal. The work William does helps to fund a second law firm, Salvos Legal Humanitarian. This arm helps people who are left out of the legal system, because they don’t qualify for legal aid yet still struggle to afford their own lawyer.
William has been working at Salvos Law as an associate for the last eighteen months. He has been nominated for the Lawyers Weekly 30 Under 30 Awards, and the Young Gun Award.
Ellen Leabeater started off by asking William what his motivation was for getting in to law.
