WHN solicitor earns prestigious accreditation

Tanzeela Aslam, an associate solicitor at Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall Solicitors, has been accredited as a clinical negligence specialist by The Law Society.

The prestigious accolade is only granted to legal professionals who meet the highest standards of technical expertise and quality of client service, and Tanzeela is just one of three solicitors in East Lancashire to hold it.

It recognises her ability to help those who have suffered the life-changing and damaging effects of medical negligence with recovery and rehabilitation during what is a difficult and emotional time.

Tanzeela said: "It’s only fair that victims of clinical negligence have access to specialist legal advice to help put matters right. The accreditation scheme acts as a benchmark for excellence in this complex area of law, guiding people in the right direction for accessing the very best legal advice.

"Obtaining accreditation represents the pinnacle of achievement in this specialist field of law, so I’m extremely proud to have been recognised for my expertise and commitment to helping rebuild lives that have been shattered by sub-standard healthcare."

Tanzeela, who joined WHN in 2018, is both an associate solicitor and a barrister as well as an accredited senior litigator of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).

Simon Brown, managing director, WHN Solicitors, added: "Tanzeela is not only an expert in her field, but she’s extremely compassionate and caring, and above all really strives to help people who have suffered in these circumstances.

"The accreditation adds additional depth and backing to Tanzeela’s already extensive skillset and offers reassurance of expertise for clients."
