She qualified in London and worked there for a specialist private client firm. She has now lived in Oxford for over twenty years and enjoys working in the town.

Bridget helps her clients plan for the future and often then helps their families if they need assistance later on. This can involve setting up Lasting Powers of Attorney or registering existing Enduring Powers of Attorney and may involve advice in using them. She also arranges Deputyship applications and advises on relations with the Court of Protection.

According to The Legal 500 UK, "perspective and personable" Bridget Maier "grasps complex matters swiftly and is very good at dealing with challenging family situations".

Bridget takes clients’ instructions for Wills, often discussing clients wishes and finding a workable framework for them to accommodate changes in the future.

She also deals with Probate and Estate administration where she gives the family or other beneficiaries as much help as they need or would like in sorting out the estate, including dealing with Inheritance tax, obtaining a Grant of Representation or drawing up a Deed of Variation as well as the more practical matters of collecting in and distributing assets.
