Maddie, who specialises in private client work, creating wills, lasting powers of attorney, and trusts, said she was “incredibly proud” to have achieved her goal in qualifying as a solicitor.

She added: “I thoroughly enjoy the work that I do on a day-to-day basis.

“It can be very rewarding assisting the elderly and sometimes vulnerable clients in matters that can often be daunting or distressing to them.

“I always endeavour to make the process as smooth as possible for them, so it is a huge honour to be recognised for my efforts with this award, which also puts me in good stead for my future career.”
