Trainee Solicitor at Express Solicitor, Raana Afsarpour, was named runner up at the Manchester Young Legal Awards 2013.
Raana was originally nominated for the Rising Star Award but was moved by the judges to the Legal Professional of the Year category due to her outstanding achievements, where she was presented with a runner up trophy, second only to the President of The Manchester Law Society.
The Legal Professional of the Year Award recognises a person’s exemplary performance in their field, through their work on major cases, a focus on client care and individual projects and pro bono work.
When asked about her award, Raana said: “I couldn’t be happier with this achievement, a proud moment for myself and the firm, which proves that hard work for your clients can go a long way. I am so grateful to Express Solicitors for their commitment to training and their unwavering support of my efforts.”
