Victoria Poole is shortlisted for Family Law Award

Victoria Poole, a Chartered Legal Executive and Director at SH&Co., has been shortlisted as 1 of only 4 nominees for the Family Law Awards in the ‘Family Law Chartered Legal Executive or Paralegal of the Year’ category.

The Awards were launched to recognise the important work of family lawyers, and celebrate their many successes and outstanding achievements.

The shortlist has been chosen by a judging panel made up of the heads of the Family Law Bar Association, Resolution and the Association of Lawyers for Children, along with Family Law editors and publishing executives.

In keeping with tradition, three of this year’s Awards, including the Family Law Chartered Legal Executive or Paralegal of the Year, will be voted for by the family law community.

Susan Howarth, Founder and Director of SH&Co., has said “In the 12 years Vicky has been with SH&Co., her legal skills, expertise and sound judgement, not to mention sheer common sense, have shone through, making her an excellent family lawyer that we, as a firm, are proud to have on our board.

I am thrilled and delighted that Vicky is nominated as 1 of the 4 nominees for the prestigious award of Chartered Legal Executive or Paralegal of the Year, hosted by the national legal organisation of Family Law and Lexis Nexis. Not just well deserved but an accolade for herself and also the firm. Well done Vicky!”
