What is an Accredited Specialist?

You may have noticed that all of our Family Law clients have their first appointment with one of our Accredited Specialists. What exactly is an Accredited Specialist though, and how does having one benefit you with your family law matter?

Specialist Accreditation is earned under the Law Society’s Specialist Accreditation Scheme. It is bestowed upon practising lawyers with demonstrated expertise in a practice area, for instance, Family Law.

What’s the benefit of choosing an Accredited Specialist?

Matters in Family Law can be complex, emotional and often highly stressful. If you want to receive specialist advice so that you can achieve the very best outcome for your matter, then an Accredited Specialist in Family Law is the way to go.

In order to become a Family Law Accredited Specialist, lawyers must:

  • Have been practising for a minimum of five years, in a fulltime capacity;
  • Have been practising in Family Law for a minimum of three years;
  • Pass the Law Society’s assessments determining level of expertise; and,
  • Maintain their Accreditation annually, including remaining up-to-date with their skillset and knowledge in Family Law.
