CELEBRATING 25 YEARS AS A LAWYER

It is all about passion and commitment

Today I am celebrating that I was admitted to the Amsterdam Bar on 12 September 1989. I am a graduate of VU University in Amsterdam, 1989. After 8 years of practicing law for two different law firms in Amsterdam (one small, one large firm), I moved to Curaçao in October 1997. Currently, I belong to both the Amsterdam Bar (the Netherlands) and the Dutch Caribbean Bar.

I live in Curaçao (the Dutch Caribbean) with my wife, Carla, and our two daughters, Yvette and Pascale. Most people, including my clients, think that I am a professional with a sense of humor, open-minded, and full of energy. And I have a confession: I have passion for what I do and I try to instill this passion into the people who work with me.

I will be leaving my current firm (Spigt Dutch Caribbean) per the 1st of October 2014. The reason for my leave is that I have been part of this great firm for many years and that I am up for a new challenge. I want to be able to spend more time on my social and scientific activities, and will start my own law practice in Curaçao starting 2015. I will take a sabbatical until then.

I believe the best way to end this post is to remind you that passion should be your fuel, and commitment your engine!
