We are delighted to announce that Laura Farrell and Laura Armstrong, both senior solicitors in our clinical negligence department, have received litigator accreditation from the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
The APIL accreditation scheme has been running since 1999 and is an established quality mark. It offers reassurance that clients have chosen the right law firm to help them in their fight for justice.
To be accredited members must meet stringent standards set by APIL and provide evidence of their competency and experience in handling personal injury cases.
As part of the accreditation members must undertake to keep up to date with all the latest legal developments and training is rigorously vetted to ensure that it meets with APILs extremely high standards.
Also holding litigator accreditation are Julie Tansey and Rachel Baker, in our clinical negligence department. Together with Laura and Laura, they are the only personal injury solicitors in Doncaster to hold the accreditation.
APIL accredited senior litigators at the firm are Stephaney Veysey, Beverley Baker, Maria Houghton, Bob Allen, Janet Lee, Christopher Noble and Gillian Ward; 7 of only 9 solicitors in Doncaster to hold this particular accreditation.
In addition, Diane Parker, partner and head of personal injury is the only APIL accredited fellow in Doncaster. While John McQuater, partner and head of litigation is the only senior fellow in the entire Yorkshire region.
Senior fellow is the highest level of accreditation and is only awarded to those who can show an outstanding contribution to personal injury law and practice, for example by changing the law in some way.
Members at all levels are re-assessed every 5 years to ensure that they continue to meet the required standard.
