Rebecca accredited as Children Law Practitioner

  • Posted on

Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers are delighted to announce that Family & Care Solicitor Rebecca Wolfenden has become accredited by the Law Society as a member of the Children Law Panel.

The Children Law Accreditation Scheme covers all types of children law work.

Law Society accredited children lawyers are specialists in dealing with the areas of the law related to children.

The Children Law accreditation provides a recognised quality standard for practitioners representing children in children law proceedings.  The accreditation is a means of identification for professionals such as guardians to be able to identify suitably qualified practitioners when children need representing. 

Rebecca has had to show the Law Society that she has achieved the required level of competence, knowledge and experience in the area of Children law and the representation of children. She has been able to demonstrate awareness and expertise in children law proceedings and the representation of children in such proceedings. Rebecca is therefore now able to take instructions from CAFCASS/Guardian’s in order to do so and represent children.

Practice Manager, Joanne Ormston said, “The partners are so proud of Rebecca and how hard she has worked to become an accredited member of the Children’s Panel.  This means that we will be able to take on instructions from Guardians and ensure clients can be confident that Rebecca has a proven competency in children law proceedings. Being a member of the Children Panel is recognised and held in high esteem by the profession, Court’s, judiciary and Local Authorities."

Rebecca herself said, "I feel very proud and honoured to be a member of the Law Society Children Panel. It is a qualification that I have always wanted to achieve. It has been hard work but I am thrilled to have done so. I am looking forward to the new challenges that this will bring, further developing my career and working with Guardian’s and representing children as well as continuing to represent parents, other family members and proposed Special Guardians."
