A solicitor from national law firm Weightmans’ family team has been recognised by the UK’s leading family law organisation Resolution.
Eleanor Webster, known as Ellie, is now an accredited specialist in complex financial remedy proceedings and private children law proceedings. She joins other experts in Weightmans’ family law team who hold accreditation in a number of areas, including international family law and cohabitation.
Ellie was singled out for praise, as she was also awarded special recognition as ranking in the top three of recent applicants for accreditation.
Resolution’s Specialist Accreditation Scheme has been developed to recognise members who have demonstrated excellence in the practice of family law and in the areas in which they specialise. Members applying for Specialist Accreditation are required to demonstrate thorough knowledge and skills, proficiency and experience in specialist areas of family law.
Accreditation offers the public a reliable means of identifying practitioners who are recognised as having special competence in the area of family law and practice who will act in a constructive and conciliatory way, in accordance with Resolution’s Code of Practice.
She comments: “As a Resolution member, I am committed to encouraging a constructive approach to resolving family disputes. That way, both the emotional and financial costs of divorce or family breakdown are minimised for those involved.
“Now, by choosing a Resolution specialist, individuals can be assured that they are being advised by someone who has a wide knowledge and experience of family law and has the qualifications to demonstrate it.”
