From student to solicitor at Hine Downing


Maddi Worton has qualified as a fully-fledged solicitor at Hine Downing, specialising in commercial property.

Worton joined the Falmouth-based firm five years ago, with a degree in Law from Exeter University, and with mentoring and encouragement from the firm’s partners has worked her way through the various levels of legal qualification – achieving a distinction in her Legal Practice Course in the run-up to becoming a solicitor.

“To undertake this route to qualification is not for the faint-hearted,” said partner John Lowry.

“To achieve the grades she has whilst doing a full time job, commuting between Bude and Falmouth every day, is a remarkable achievement. Maddi relishes the challenges of new experiences – but equally she is calm, patient and understanding in her dealings with clients and has the wonderful ability to put people at their ease.”
