Manchester, United Kingdom (July 11, 2022) – Manchester based law firm Express Solicitors are proud to announce that two of their partners, Jonathan Flattery and Adele Greenough have been awarded the Law Society accreditation.
As of July 2022, only 204 lawyers in the UK possess the Law Society Personal Injury Accreditation. With the addition of Adele Greenough and Jonathan Flattery, Express Solicitors now has the joint highest number of members out of the 156 firms listed.
The Law Society Personal Injury Accreditation exists to ensure that those injured in accidents across the UK can find and choose a solicitor with confidence and know that they will receive the highest standard of representation.
Displaying the accreditation badge ensures that clients are easily able to identify competent solicitors and firms that have a specialisation in personal injury law. To ensure that all members are up to date and working in line with best practices, the Law Society requires its members to undergo re-accreditation every three years.
Gaining the accreditation is a great personal achievement for both the individual and their firm, requiring candidates to undergo a rigorous application process which can take up to 8 weeks.
Managing Partner, James Maxey said: “I am very proud of our two partners Adele and Jonathan being awarded the accreditation. It is a huge personal achievement and a recognition of the high standard of work they have both done.”
In order for a lawyer to be accredited and become a panel member, they must meet specific criteria. They are required to have conducted personal injury matters for a minimum of three years, in addition to demonstrating a high level of competency and knowledge in this specific area of law.
Furthermore, they must also possess additional skills such as the ability to negotiate and understand how to use an expert witness to aid their case.
Adele said: “I am very proud to have been accredited and feel it is a huge achievement to have my specialism recognised. I endeavour each and every day to utilise my experience to the best advantage of my clients and being admitted to such a prestigious panel reaffirms that.”
Jonathan said: “I am very proud to have been awarded panel status by the Law Society. In doing so I have joined a select group of Solicitors in the country who have gained that recognition, several of whom work at Express Solicitors.”
Express Solicitors recognise the value in this accreditation and the benefit that it has for clients in providing excellent care and legal advice. It also re-affirms that the firm is constantly striving to provide the highest quality of service for its clients, many of which have suffered extremely serious injuries and have complex needs.
