Hi my name is Helen, I have been at PEXA for nearly four years as a Practitioner Specialist, and being a rural girl myself I am so passionate about regional firms. It is my absolute pleasure to virtually service all Regional QLD. Before COVID I would visit them every few months or so. I miss catching up with them face to face, but love supporting them virtually as they transition to digital. Over the next month I will be bringing you a series of Q & A’s with some of the firms that make up my portfolio. I hope you love getting to know them as much as I have.
Maddie is a lawyer at Paul Watts and Co a family run operation based in beautiful Yeppoon.
Maddie, you not only run a law firm, but you run it with your family? What is that like!?
It can be challenging at times but it is also very rewarding. I am lucky to be able to do something I love and be doing it with my family and for my family. It’s my father’s legacy so it means so much more doing it all together.
You’ve got a young family, what is your best tip for people who like you juggle both?
Don’t be too hard on yourself. You are only one person. Prioritise, keeping calm and having good protocols in place are key for me. I have to be super organised.
What’s your favourite thing about property law?
I am a very routine and structured person and that’s what I like about property law. As much as it can be the same it can also be so different. No day is the same.
Fast forward 10 years, where will you be?
Hopefully still running our little practice in our beautiful, buzzing coastal town and offering people quality legal service with my beautiful family behind me.
