Hunter Solicitor achieves coveted Accreditation
Newcastle based Solicitor, Lisa Roberts, has been appointed as an Accredited Specialist in Wills and Estates by the Law Society of New South Wales.
Less than seven per cent of solicitors in NSW have their Specialist Accreditation. Lisa, a senior solicitor at Newcastle-based Osborn Law, becomes one of only three Solicitors, and the only female in private practice, to hold the accreditation in this particular discipline in Newcastle.
Partner of Osborn Law, Tim Osborn, said that Accredited Specialists are Solicitors who have shown outstanding capability in a particular area of law.
“The requirements for becoming recognised as an accredited specialist are quite rigorous. A Solicitor must have practiced full-time for at least five years, have worked in their area of specialty for at least three years, and must also pass assessments in communication, problem solving, client relations, and the laws specific to their specialisation.
“Further to this, each year they must continue to improve their knowledge and skill base in their specific discipline to retain their Accreditation. Because of these stringent requirements, the Law Society advertises that you are in safe hands with an Accredited Specialist, and this achievement is testament to Lisa’s dedication and expert knowledge of wills and estates,” he said.
Lisa Roberts said that she was happy to be able to deliver her clients meaningful and practical advice to safeguard their future and the future of their family.
“Everyone should review their personal and business circumstances and agreements. Death is not always the easiest thing to discuss, but we all know it is inevitable and something that should be discussed. I am happy to be recognised as someone that specialises in helping people during these often difficult discussions,” she said.
