I have never worked with or met this lady but I would like to send a thought for her family which helped me when I lost my mum - Please accept my sincere condolences to her family.
You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday
You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

My memories of Maria were of a highly intelligent and extremely capable lawyer. The world is a lesser place without her. - Richard Jowett, former partner at HTD

My thoughts are with Maria's family, friends and colleagues. I only met Maria when I worked in the London office for a couple of weeks at Hill Dickinson. In the short time I knew her she earned my respect as a talented, brilliant lawyer and how she looked out for her team and colleagues. An inspiration. Rest in Peace, you worked so hard its such a tragedy you were taken so young.
