1. ART HOUSE
Art is my ardour and earlier than being on TV, I’d purchase a bit of artwork at the finish of every case I labored on. This explosion of color and texture by unimaginable artist Robi Walters is made of reduce out items of steel.
I used to be a authorized support lawyer once I purchased it, so needed to pay in instalments. I even have a drawing of a dove by Picasso on the different wall that I purchased in Saint-Paul de Vence – I like that his pencil touched the reasonably dangerous paper it’s on.

He was additionally an out homosexual member of the Bar. Whatever circumstances I’m in, once I decide the pen up, I ask myself, ‘What would Malcolm do?’
