Maria is a paralegal in our personal injury team. She acts on behalf of individuals who have been involved in accidents on the road, at work and as a result of slips, trips or falls.
Whilst studying for her law degree, Maria also worked in a variety of solicitors’ firms and undertook voluntary legal work with a variety of legal advice centres for deprived individuals. She particularly enjoyed the satisfaction of providing vital services to people in real need and following this she was determined to pursue a career in the law.
Maria has been working in personal injury for the past two years. Her clients are her number one priority. She is driven by a desire to ensure she obtains the maximum compensation and appropriate rehabilitation for her clients, to help redress the pain and suffering caused as a result of their accidents. She believes a good lawyer listens and understand their clients’ needs and that this creates a strong relationship based on trust.
Maria joined Bell Lax in February 2017. Prior to this, she worked for a leading national law firm, specialising in Road Traffic Accidents. In this role, she managed her own caseload of Claimant Personal Injury Claims. She dealt with all aspects of the claims from the beginning to the successful conclusion of the claims for compensation. Maria advised and undertook settlement negotiations with the aim of ensuring her clients received the full compensation they deserved.
Outside work, Maria enjoys chocolate, going to the gym, and spending time with her nieces.
