Richard Pollins_DMH Stallard_800x500I grew up in…Brighton initially, then mid Sussex.

Now I live in…Saltdean.

When I was a child I wanted to be…an astronaut.

My first job was…stacking shelves in Key Markets Burgess Hill.

My career was most influenced by…my father for his incredible intellect, work ethic and sense of humour.

The best piece of advice I was given was…always have a holiday booked – it preserves your sanity.

The worst piece of advice I was given was…managing a law firm is easy.

When I need inspiration I…listen to my kids.

The biggest turning point in my career was…the day I started with the firm some 27 years ago.

I love what I do because…I am surrounded by some very talented and brilliant people who happen to be very nice too! 

Not many people realise that…I have a twin brother.

Our customers love us because…we offer a partner-led service which significantly enhances the client experience.

I love Brighton & Hove because…it’s such a diverse place to live and work, and now with a Premier League Football team!

My top tip for people visiting Brighton & Hove is…on a sunny day grab the number 12 bus to Saltdean Lido, and then take the under cliff walk to Rottingdean, before having a nice pint in the village. Nothing better!

My favourite place in Sussex is…Wolstonbury Hill (some great views and very peaceful).

In my spare time I…play my guitar, run around after the kids, do my best to support Rockinghorse, follow the Albion.

My claim to fame is…I once had a 15 minute chat with Charlton Heston.

This time next year…I will be a year older, and hopefully a year wiser!
