It is only awarded to those who meet the highest standards of technical expertise and client service after demonstrating a high level of competence, knowledge and best practice in family law.
“I am very pleased that my skills and expertise have been recognised in this way and clients can be confident when instructing me that I am able to represent them at the highest level, providing realistic and appropriate advice.” - Natalie Lester -
The scheme is run by Resolution whose members are family lawyers and other professionals committed to a constructive and amicable approach to family disputes. When assisting separating couples, they help them work together when ending their relationship and encouraging them to avoid the confrontation and expense of the courtroom in favour of open communication. Where possible, Natalie believes that we should encourage a less confrontational approach to family separation, which generally results in a less damaging and traumatic outcome for all. This is particularly important when children are involved.
“We are proud of her achievement which demonstrates her ongoing dedication to excellent client service.” - Debenhams Ottaway -
