Leading accreditation for personal injury lawyer

A Stephensons personal injury specialist has been recognised for her outstanding expertise in the field, with an endorsement from the Law Society – the representative body for solicitors in England and Wales.

Danielle Callaway – based at the firms Wigan Investment Centre office – has been awarded the Law Society’s Personal Injury Accreditation which recognises a high level of knowledge, skills, experience and practice in the area of personal injury law. At present, there are fewer than 500 accredited solicitors in England and Wales.

The Law Society’s accreditation scheme is designed to allow the public to make an informed choice when instructing their legal representative and to differentiate true experts in the legal sector.

After beginning her career as a graduate paralegal in the firm’s personal injury department, Danielle later completed her training contract with Stephensons and qualified as a solicitor in 2011. She specialises in serious injury claims resulting from accidents at work, accidents in public places and road traffic accidents, as well as dealing with complex criminal injury claims and professional negligence claims.

Kate Sweeney, Head of Personal Injury at Stephensons, said: “I would like to congratulate Danielle on her achievement. As a department, we are always proud of the achievements of our solicitors – particularly where their careers have started with the firm.

“We are constantly looking to maintain and improve upon our hard-won reputation as a leading practice and to demonstrate our outstanding knowledge and expertise in the field of personal injury.

“Achieving Law Society accreditation requires real commitment and a dedication to securing the best outcome for clients. In short, it recognises that the individual is among some of the finest lawyers practicing in the sector.”
