Armstrong Legal has more Accredited Specialists in Criminal Law than any private law firm in NSW – in fact, we have twice as many as any other firm.
Specialist Accreditation is a structured peer to peer assessment process enabling legal practitioners to be recognised for their expertise. To be Accredited Specialists, solicitors must pass a series of meticulous assessments on both legal knowledge and its application in practice. To retain their accreditation specialists must undertake, as a minimum, twice as much professional education in their area of expertise each year.
Of the 32,000 registered solicitors in NSW, only about 170 are Accredited Criminal Law Specialists.
Formal Specialist Accreditation is conducted by the Law Society of NSW and is a reliable bench mark for the members of the public to use in assessing the quality of the legal representation they will receive.
