Battens Solicitors has reason to celebrate this festive season thanks to the hard work of Family Law team member Georgina Bacon, who has been awarded a place on the Law Society’s prestigious Children’s Panel.
Gaining the accreditation is no mean feat. Georgina, who has been practicing family law for more than 11 years, trained intensively before undergoing a rigorous assessment and interview process at Chancery Lane’s renowned Law Society. “Achieving accreditation to the Law Society Children’s Panel is not just recognition of my experience and expertise in this sensitive area,” said Georgina, ” it means that as well as acting for parents and grandparents in children’s cases, I can now also act on behalf of the children themselves, either through their Guardian ad Litem or directly.
“My work often sees me deal with clients who are confused, upset and anxious about their case, and I find it hugely rewarding to be able to connect with them and give them the clarity they need to make informed decisions in what can be a very emotional time. I am proud to now be able to do this for children, too.”
The accreditation is a nationally recognised hallmark of quality that guardians and other professionals can seek out when specialist representation is needed for children in difficult private disputes or care proceedings.
