Blanche McDade - Trainee Solicitor

Blanche is a trainee solicitor in the Family team.

She is currently studying LLM Legal Practice and LPC part-time at BPP Law School.

After graduating Blanche worked in an insurance company dealing with claims for industrial disease and then became part of the Ashtons uninsured loss department in March 2017. The department deals with recovering a wide range of losses on behalf of companies following road traffic accidents – this role included investigating liability issues, recovering policy excess, hire, loss of profit etc. and issuing Court proceedings.

Blanche became a personal injury executive in November 2018, specialising in helping those injured in road traffic accidents to obtain the compensation they deserve and ensuring they are not financially worse off after an accident.

Blanche provides a reliable, professional, friendly service and is always willing to help. She is passionate about obtaining the best settlement for clients following an accident that was not their fault.

Outside of work, Blanche enjoys running and recently ran her first half marathon as part of an Ashtons Legal team. She also volunteers at the Ipswich Winter night shelter which provides accommodation to those who are homeless over the winter months.
