Rachel Flannigan of Express Solicitors, Manchester, has been made a member of The Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel. Only solicitors who demonstrate a high level of expertise in Personal Injury Law are appointed to the panel.
Rachel, who heads up the Road Traffic Accident team at Express Solicitors, said: “I am very happy to have made it onto the Panel as it shows my hard work over the last 7 – 8 years has paid off, and I have been recognised by my governing body for my ability to not only deal with claims competently, but also to provide a high standard of service.”
Accreditation scheme members are scrutinised in areas such as client care, knowledge, record keeping and in their contact with clients. At least three years’ experience is necessary to apply, yet merely having the experience is not always enough to earn a position on the panel.
“The criteria for making it onto the panel are very stringent and make it very hard to become a member and therefore I feel this is my biggest achievement since qualifying in 2005.”
Express Solicitors is delighted with Rachel’s achievement, as it is just reward for the continuing effort and commitment she has shown since joining the firm in 2004.
When choosing an independent personal injury solicitor, along with Association Of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) accreditation, membership of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel illustrates that a solicitor demonstrates the highest practices in the industry.
“I can now explain to client’s both existing and potential that I am a member of the panel and this reflects the high level of experience, knowledge and client care they can expect to receive and this gives them confidence in me as their solicitor”, added Rachel.
Rachel Flannigan is the fifth solicitor practising at Express Solicitors who have received this accreditation, which is a remarkable achievement considering the relatively low number of solicitors in the Manchester area who are on the panel. Managing partner James Maxey, senior partner Robin Patey, partner Daniel slade and senior solicitor Sharon Denby complete the quintet.
