A PONTELAND-BASED legal business was delighted to win a prestigious national accolade.

At the ceremony for Jordan Publishing’s third Family Law Awards in London, only two North East practices were represented in the short-listing.

And one of those, Major Family Law, was successful as principal Joanne Major was announced winner of the Most Innovative Family Lawyer of the Year Award.

She was nominated for her effective use of social media, especially Twitter, to communicate legal advice, support and information – both to other members of the profession and the wider lay population. The category was voted for online.

The award recognised ‘the individual who the family law community recognise as having applied the most innovative solutions to promote and enhance their practice and led the way for other practitioners to follow’.

Major Family Law’s offices are on West Road. For more information about its services, call 01661 824582.
