September 6, 2016 @ 8:52 by Chloe Holmes

The Family Law team at David Gray Solicitors has been shortlisted for a prestigious national legal award that recognises their specialist work. The annual Family Law Awards acknowledge the important work of family lawyers, and celebrate the successes and achievements of talented individuals and teams from across the country.

David Gray Solicitors has been shortlisted in the category of Regional Firm of the Year (North) and is the only firm in the North East to be recognised.

Finalists have been selected based on strict criteria that cover areas such as:

  • Quality of legal services
  • Pro bono initiatives and services that benefit the local community
  • Range of expertise within the firm
  • Involvement in important family law cases

Lucy Mead, Partner and Head of the Family Team at David Gray said,

‘Being a finalist in these awards is testament to the hard work and commitment of every member of the team in delivering an exceptional legal service for clients. Our expertise in a broad range of family law matters has enabled us to develop a presence on national and regional family law committees and boards, influencing policy and driving change where it’s needed. Although we are firmly based in the North East with offices in Newcastle and South Shields we are increasingly asked to advise people all over the country and overseas, something which we can deliver easily online. Our multi-disciplinary approach to providing legal advice and family mediation means that clients always get access to the very best advice from a broad range of legal and other experts: whether that’s advice on high value financial remedy divorces, or complex children cases.’

This shortlisting adds to previous success: David Gray’s Family Team was awarded Family Team of the Year in the Northern Law Awards in 2015 and was the first team in the region to secure double top ranking in the Legal 500 and Chambers national directories- which it has since consistently maintained.

The Family Law Awards winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Bloomsbury Big Top in London on 23rd November 2016.
