Head of Hugh James Inquest Team awarded ‘Senior Litigator’ status

The Head of our specialist inquest service has been accredited as a ‘senior litigator’ by APIL – the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.

Lynda Reynolds, has received this quality mark of competence in recognition of her considerable experience in assisting families with inquests relating to hospital or care homes deaths, where medical negligence is expected.

APIL is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to protecting and enhancing access to justice, improving the services provided for victims of personal injury, and campaigning to change the law wherever appropriate.

The accreditation scheme is awarded to solicitors and counsel dealing with personal injury claims who have reached a specific standard. It helps the public to recognise expertise and specialisms within the profession, when seeking advice.

Speaking of her award, Lynda Reynolds, said today:

“I’m very pleased to have received the accreditation mark from APIL. I strive to provide the best service to my clients and feel that additional accreditation provides reassurance for them and highlights the specialist nature of the work we do at Hugh James.”

Lynda joins a growing number of lawyers at Hugh James who have achieved this level of accreditation status from APIL, including Aidan Lloyd, an Associate in the firm’s Specialist Personal Injury team, and London chief, Mark Harvey, who was appointed as an APIL Senior Fellow in 2020.
