Why We Made the Legal 500 Family Law Rankings

Why We Made the Legal 500 Family Law Rankings

We’re proud to be included the rankings for the legal 500 family law, but we didn’t get there by chance The Legal 500 Family Law rankings have been around for years, making sure that the best solicitors in the UK are recognised for the great work they do. We at KMJ Solicitors are very happy to be a part of those rankings. So how did we do it? 1. We Offer Quality, Up-to-Date Legal Advice The law changes. Sometimes, it changes dramatically in a short space of time. Consider Ireland’s laws on homosexuality. Until 1993, the act of homosexuality was illegal. By 2015, gay marriage was fully legalised. As such, the best law firms are the ones that change with the law. Legal advice offered 30 years ago can be worse than useless if the laws have changed. That’s why the Legal 500 Family Law only contains those practices and individuals who make sure that they have a deep understanding of the law as it is in the present. This is to make sure that the best quality of legal advice is offered. In the Legal 500’s own words, only those “who are providing the most cutting edge and innovative advice” make the cut. 2. We Pride Ourselves on Our Past and Present Achievements The Legal 500 Family Law rankings and the Legal 500 Ranking, in general, are not just based on recent work, but on a practice’s historical track record. This makes a lot of sense. For example, Yahoo’s past achievements are much more impressive than its recent lacklustre work. To make the Legal 500 Family Law, a practice’s whole...
