BEDFORD LAW FIRM WINS NATIONAL RECOGNITION

Bedford law firm Emmott Snell & Co is celebrating after the country's biggest personal injury campaigning group awarded a quality kitemark in recognition of its expertise and professionalism.

The firm, in Grove Place, was commended in a national accreditation scheme designed to assist injured people, which is run by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL). The scheme, which assesses lawyers according to their experience, expertise and dedication to client care, only bestows the kitemark to those firms who meet the strict criteria.

Commenting on the announcement, principal solicitor Tracey Emmott said the team, which has a breadth of experience in assisting people injured in accidents at work, road traffic and public liability accidents, also specialises in child abuse claims, and is dedicated to providing the best service possible to those injured through no fault of their own.

She said: "We work very hard to ensure injured people receive the justice they deserve, and I am delighted staff here have been recognised for their dedication and the wealth of experience they bring to those in need of legal assistance. It is especially exciting as we are the only APIL accredited law firm in Bedford. It is so important that people receive properly qualified advice in their time of need ? the kitemark will reassure injured people that they are in safe hands."
