Joanne is the latest solicitor from our Family Law department to join the scheme. Joanne’s membership confirms her expertise when it comes to dealing with Child Law and her knowledge of the law as it applies in cases involving children and minors.
In order to obtain membership of the Child Law Accreditation Scheme, Joanne had to demonstrate her experience representing parties in public and private legal proceedings under the Children Act 1989. As well as putting together summaries of Child Law cases she has been involved in, Joanne also had to pass a rigorous interview at the Law Society before her application was approved.
According to the Law Society, Accreditation Schemes serve to promote high standards in the provision of legal services and they also ensure that members of the public who might need help with a particular area of law are easily able to identify legal practitioners who have a proven competency in that area. The scheme also ensures that the solicitors involved maintain their expertise in their chosen area of law by means of a periodic re-accreditation process.
Speaking after receiving her certificate from the Law Society confirming her membership of the Child Law Accreditation Scheme, Joanne said:
"I was very pleased to receive confirmation from the Law Society of my membership of the Child Law accreditation scheme. Here at Canter Levin and Berg we take child law matters very seriously and always aim to deliver the very highest standards of legal advice and service to individuals who need it. It's great to have written confirmation of my experience in this area of law."
