Mum of three started working for Madden Solicitors this year

FOR solicitor Krissy Cummins, no two days are the same.

From representing clients in court to working with clients on family law, estates or wills, Mrs Cummins is now bringing her talent to the Capricorn Coast at Madden Solicitors Yeppoon.

Madden Solicitors is a well-established legal firm and has been operating in Yeppoon since 1998.

The practice now has offices in Yeppoon and Rockhampton.

Originally from the area, Mrs Cummins has worked in the region as a solicitor since 2005.

Finishing university in 2002, the mother-of-three started working for Madden Solicitors in January this year.

Her areas of expertise include Estate Administration, Wills and Enduring Powers of Attorney, Residential and Commercial Conveyancing, Leasing (Commercial and Retail Shop Leases), and other general property title matters such as exemptions under the Land Sales Act, boundary realignments, requests to dispense with the production of title deeds, easements, setting up community titles schemes.

Mrs Cummins said it was while taking legal studies in high school that she saw it as a potential career path.

"I thought it was fun," Mrs Cummins said.

"I enjoy the challenge, working with people, every day is different. I'm starting to branch out into the areas of criminal law and family law, which are a big part of the practice here."

The firm continues to practice in all areas of law, but with an emphasis on family law, criminal law, traffic offences, conveyancing and wills and estates.

All of their solicitors are Yeppoon locals and have raised, or are raising their families on the Capricorn Coast and support the local community and businesses.
