Maria Francis, - Firm Coordinator, Mental Health First Aid Officer


Simple. I love coming to work each day.

I work with the most remarkable individuals that both challenge and inspire me. There is great camaraderie amongst the team. They give it their all and with the highest level of professionalism that makes every day incredibly fulfilling.

Often my rather loud laugh can be heard resonating throughout the building. There is never a lack of humour in the office. Whether it is meeting a new client, hearing their stories, or sharing a personal story, there is always something interesting unfolding.

There is a real sense of community at WARDS LAWYERSPC that I enjoy immensely, this is one of the many reasons coming to work is so enjoyable.

More about Maria

Memorable Moment

It was my birthday, I normally let the day pass quietly.

As I headed to my desk, I was surprised to find my space had been decorated with balloons, flowers, and cards!! I was speechless (which does not happen very often). I am often the one coordinating for others, this caught me completely by surprise!

It is the small things that bring the most gratitude and I was moved beyond measure by the thoughtfulness.

A Message From Maria

I feel that giving someone your time is the most important gift that I can give. I strive to do that every day, with every client and to hopefully make their first impression a positive one.
