“These particular awards have become the most significant in the world of Personal Injury in the last few years, developing into a really big event.  The team has had to beat off stiff competition both nationally and regionally in order to make it to the shortlist, and I think it is testament to the hard work of the individuals at our firm that we have been shortlisted.  It goes without saying that I am exceedingly proud of everyone in the team.”
