Client Profile Image

If you could give your 20 year old self one piece of advice what would it be?

Buy the most expensive clothes you can afford, classic style to suit your shape, accessorize and great shoes. The day will start better ....

If you could change your name what would it be and why?

Maria Consuelo Mercedes Madonna Adams! Actually, I like my name but few pronunce it correctly. Think of eye ball and dog leash.

You have a 1 minute ad slot during the FA Cup Final, what would you fill it with?

Educating men about cleaning up as you go along when cooking and how happy it makes their wives and girlfriends. By the time the FA cup final is on household duties are absent!!!!.

If you had to live without one, would you choose internet or AC and heating?

Heating. I am addicted to Audible so would be at a loss. I suppose I could wrap up with a good book and a mug of tea if it was cold.

My most annoying habit is?

Failure to engage brain before mouth in situations where I should know better!

I am a solicitor and I specialise in Wills, Probate, Trusts and Lasting Powers of Attorney. I am also one of the directors of The Law House.

Prior to life as a lawyer, I had a background in psychotherapy. This does add a dimension of having a sensitive and thoughtful approach when dealing with clients. That said, I have a morbid sense of humour and you may often hear me joke about death. I do this to ease clients at what can often be a difficult time. From making a Will to dealing with the death of a loved one, my daily role is to deal with all things morbid. I try to make it humorous and to challenge clients’ perceptions of what to expect in their lawyer. I don’t believe in formality and often find that with a bit of humour, making a Will does not seem as daunting and once done, my clients can get on with living their lives knowing they have taken care of the important things.

In my role as a director, I also spread the word about The Law House and am involved in marketing and business development for the firm.
