Miles and Partners support LALY 2019

Miles & Partners are pleased to pledge £100 to a crowdfunding project run by the Legal Aid Practioners Group (LAPG) to fund the 2019 Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year (LALY) awards, a non-profit grassroots celebration of access to justice lawyers.

It is the fourth year running that the LAPG is crowdfunding for sponsorship of the Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards (LALYs) and Miles & Partners is proud to be supporting such a popular and valued award. The LALYs, now in their 17th year,  celebrate the incredible work that legal aid lawyers do every day in ensuring their clients have access to justice. There are 12 awards in total, including Children’s Rights, Public Law, Mental Health, Access to Justice through IT, and Criminal Defence.

We feel it is our duty to support the LALYs as well as the young lawyers in our firm,’ says managing partner, Kate Hammond, ‘They deserve recognition for their all their efforts and hard work.’

The cause is dear to Miles & Partners as team members have previously been winners of the prestigious award including:

  • 2010 – David Jockelson, Family law;
  • 2010 – Sophy Miles,  Mental Health;
  • 2015 – Sarah Cove, Family Law; and
  • 2016 – Lou Crisfied, Housing.

The LALYs continue to play a vital role in recognising and celebrating the lawyers who go the extra mile to achieve life-changing results for their clients.’ LAPG CEO Chris Minnoch commented, ‘We want to ensure such vital contributions to access to justice are acknowledged.

The initial crowdfunding goal is to reach a £4,000 target. You can get involved and support the 2019 LALYs, by visiting the Crowdfunder page.
