More about Maariyah

We asked Maariyah:

What can clients expect from you?

Clients can expect an approachable nature with a sympathetic ear ready to help explain the legal jargon of the court process and take them through it whilst also easing their concerns and assisting with any queries.

What do you love most about your job?

I enjoy being able to help clients through what is generally a very difficult period in their life. Additionally, no two cases are the same and so I am constantly learning something new when different issues arise which help develop my experience.

What are your interests outside work?

I am an avid Liverpool FC fan and also enjoy reading the classics like Jane Austen. I enjoy spending time with my family.
