A leading family law solicitor from Whitley Bay has been accredited to The Law Society’s Advanced Family Law Panel for the third time.
Julie Nicholson, from Alderson Law LLP, was the first person in North Tyneside to receive the accreditation on December 1, 2004, and is only one of four people to hold the accolade across North Tyneside and Northumberland.
To receive the accreditation, practitioners must be able to demonstrate at least five years of outstanding knowledge, work and practice.
Julie covers a wide range of law disciplines, including divorce, financial agreement and child protection, and specialises in ancillary relief and Children Act proceedings.
She said: “Being accredited to the Advanced Family Law Panel for a third time is brilliant because it gives me the confidence of knowing I am working to benefit the lives of others.”
