Ruth Wright

Ruth is Head of the Court of Protection team and has 10 years of experience of acting as a professional Court of Protection deputy and as a Trustee for both children and adults. Ruth specialised in personal injury and clinical negligence claims after qualifying in 1991.

She especially enjoys building long term relationships with clients and their families and supporting them both during and after the compensation claim process. She finds it rewarding to work closely with clients so that the compensation can give them the best quality of life possible and financial security.

Ruth says:

Having a Professional Deputy gives clients and their families peace of mind knowing that they have someone working alongside them to ensure that the client’s finances are properly managed and their futures are as secure as we can make them

Away from work she loves to scuba dive and has swam with sharks, manta rays and turtles, amongst other sea creatures and loves nothing better than a beer after a day’s diving.

Ruth goes to the gym daily, is a keen dancer and loves the Argentine Tango, which is an excuse for buying new shoes!

What others say:
Dedicated, resourceful, and very tenacious, Ruth is utterly committed to her clients. I’m very happy to refer my patients/clients to her, and would certainly have her act for myself, or a member of my family. There are absolutely no negatives with Ruth
