Lydia Michael

Senior Paralegal
Court of Protection

My Professional Background

I joined Attwaters Jameson Hill in May 2023 as a Senior Paralegal in our Court of Protection (COP) team.

I support the Financial Deputies and assist our clients who lack capacity to manage their own financial affairs.

I enjoy making long and lasting relationships with our clients, gaining their trust and support.

My previous work experience includes an assistant manager for the Halifax Plc and a mortgage broker for a couple of City firms. I also worked in the Public Guardianship Office (OPG) which is the administrative arm of the Court of Protection and more recently, I was a COP Paralegal for a large corporate city law firm for 15 years.

I have taught English as a foreign language to all ages in a small southern region of Italy for 9 months.


About me

I am first generation Greek Cypriot.  I was born in North London on the borders of Highgate

I am very proud of being a Londoner and have many random pictures and artwork around my house that depict areas and places within London! I now live with my daughter in Hertfordshire.

I love strong intense coffee and enjoy tasting and eating all foods from around the world. I adore Italian cuisine.

In my spare time I enjoy antique browsing around the outskirts of London. I am intrigued by the history behind the artifacts. I enjoy my garden in the spring and summer months and at the very least I have managed to plant some nice things there.

My childhood dream job was to own a sweetshop by the sea.

If I was stranded on a desert island, I would need to have my lip balm handy.
