Local practitioner is the first in the area to achieve dual accreditation.

Harrogate based solicitor, Carmelita Ardren from Raworths has been recognised by a leading national organisation, Resolution for her specialism in family law. Resolution works with family justice professionals to promote non-confrontational and constructive approaches to resolving family issues.

Mrs Ardren adds this accolade to her Advanced Practitioner Accreditation with the Law Society Family Law Panel and is the only solicitor in the Harrogate area to have achieved this standard in both independently assessed and accredited organisations.

Less than 1,200 people hold a Resolution Specialist Accreditation, which requires a wealth of general family law knowledge supplemented by experience and expertise. Adding this additional accreditation makes her one of the qualified and specialist family lawyers in the area. She assists separating couples, helping them work together when ending their relationship, encouraging them to avoid the confrontation and expense of the courtroom in favour of open communication.

Carmelita who is head of family at Raworths Solicitors said: “Having spent 22 years working in family law, I am committed to helping clients find the most constructive approach when settling family disputes.

“This accreditation illustrates the approach of the family unit at Raworths, which endeavours to provide a fair and mediatory service. I believe that where and when possible we should encourage a less confrontational approach to family separations, which generally results in a less damaging and traumatic outcome for all. This is particularly important when children are involved.”

Members applying for Specialist Accreditation are required to demonstrate thorough knowledge and skills, proficiency and experience in specialist areas of family law.
