Outstanding Newcomer Award 2015 - Winner Rachel Benett, Fisher Meredith Solicitors

Congratulations from everyone at the ALC to Rachel Benett from Fisher Meredith Solicitors who has been awarded this year's Outstanding Newcomer in the Field of Children Law in memory of David Hershman QC.

Rachel was unable to attend the presentation by Dame Brenda Hale DBE at the Midland Hotel in Manchester on Friday 20 November in person, as she had recently had a baby, but her words of thanks and appreciation were read out by Valerie Greenfield.  Rachel received a copy of the Hershman & McFarlane Children Law and Practice Handbook and a cheque for £1,000.

Rachel was nominated by Valerie Greenfield, with supporting statements from Emma Sherrington and Kate Makepeace Grieve.
