The skills of a Shropshire Lawyer have been recognised by the UK’s leading Family Law Group – Resolution. Sue Hodgson, Family Lawyer at law firm Lanyon Bowdler, has recently gained Resolution Accredited Specialist Status.
Sue who has been qualified for 10 years undertook her law degree at the University of Hertfordshire and her Legal Practice Course at Oxford University in conjunction with Oxford Brookes. She has previously worked at large firms in the West Midlands before joining Lanyon Bowdler in February 2007.
Sue has passed her examinations in complex financial matters and in children private law to gain her specialist status under the Resolution Scheme.
Originally set up in 1999, the Scheme is designed to help people who are facing family breakdown to make an informed choice when deciding which lawyer to appoint. To become a Resolution Accredited Specialist, lawyers have to agree to uphold the Resolution Code of Practice and to have passed a written test demonstrating a breadth of knowledge of Family Law issues and specialist knowledge in at least 2 areas of Family Law.
Sue comments "As a Resolution Member I am committed to encouraging a non-confrontational approach to resolving family disputes. That way both the emotional and financial costs of divorce or family breakdown are minimised for those involved.
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."
