The Importance of Seeking an Accredited Specialist

In this video, Accredited Family Law Specialist Bruce Provan explains what an Accredited Specialist is and why it’s important to have one in a family law matter.

Transcript

My name is Bruce Provan, I’m the Managing Director of Page Provan, Family and Fertility Lawyers, we’re a specialist law practice in Brisbane that practices only in family and fertility law. I want to speak to you today about the importance of getting a specialist in a family law matter.

For a number of years now, the Queensland Law Society has operated a program called the Specialist Accreditation Program, and what it involves is, once lawyers have had at least five years of experience, they can apply to engage in this program and the program involves a rigorous assessment process involving mock files and interviews and exams, and for those lawyers who manage to complete all of those steps, they become qualified as a specialist in that particular area of law.

The special accreditation program takes place every two years, and each time it is offered, a number of lawyers apply to become accredited specialists, but only a small proportion of lawyers who undergo the assessment will actually be successful at each occasion. Both Stephen Page and I are accredited specialists in family law and have been for a number of years.

So if you’re looking for a family lawyer, if you see that someone is an accredited specialist, you know that they’ve undergone that additional training, that additional qualification. That means that they know the area of family law very well.

So if you’re looking for the services of a lawyer who specialises in family law and is recognised as being a specialist, please see us, Page Provan, Family and Fertility Lawyers.
