Griffin Law has been shortlisted for a prestigious Law Society Excellence Award 2020, in the “Access to Justice” category. This award, the highest accolade for law firms in England and Wales, celebrates excellence and outstanding achievement.
Access to justice is a fundamental right, and legal aid performs a crucial role in providing fair and equal access to those most at risk of being excluded from our legal system.
Our non-executive chairman, Prof. Andrew MacLeod tweeted:
