Paddy Duke

Lead Designer

I’m responsible for the user experience and visual design of everything at Valla. I’m also in charge of making sure our app and website are accessible.

Before joining Valla I worked as a product designer at FreeAgent for almost 8 years, designing software to help tiny businesses do their accounting and taxes. While I was there, I learned a lot about accessibility and became an ardent advocate for accessible and inclusive design.

Why I joined Valla: I had worked with both of our co-founders in the past, and when they told me about Valla’s mission, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. Everyone deserves affordable access to legal support, and I’m determined to help make that the case.
