More about Maddy

We asked Maddy:

What can clients expect from you?

Someone who will give clients the patience, respect and time they deserve to voice their wishes and feelings. I will do all I can to help and support my clients through the court process, of which is often a very challenging and distressing time. I will work hard to help clients achieve the outcome they desire.

What do you love about your job?

The nature of the work I do in the Court of Protection means that no two cases are ever same. I love the variety of work and that we are able to build a genuine relationship with our clients when we go out and visit them. Most of our clients are often vulnerable, it is therefore very rewarding to see them benefit from the work we do for them.

What are your interests outside work?

Outside of work I enjoy cooking and baking, as well as going to the gym and spending time with my family.
