Partner and International Family Law specialist Cris McCurley was named Solicitor of the Year at this year’s Law Society Excellence Awards.
The awards took place last night in Westminster in London and were a great success.
The Judges were particularly impressed with Cris’ work with victims of abuse and her continuous fight for access to justice.
Cris was honoured to accept such a huge award and had this to say:
It was a huge honour to be part of such an amazing event, and to represent legal aid lawyers. As we move into the celebrations of 800 years since the Magna Carta, the rule of law and access to justice and human rights have never been under such severe threat. It’s incumbent on all of us to defend them with everything we have and to draw attention to the damaging effect the cuts to legal aid are having on thousands of vulnerable people.
