Leading North Yorkshire law firm McCormicks Solicitors is one of just four firms to be offered a duty solicitor contract covering Harrogate, Northallerton and Skipton.
McCormicks has long been commended for its expertise in criminal law, with Partner Geoff Rogers recognised by the legal guides as one of the leading criminal lawyers in the region.
Geoff Rogers said:
We are obviously delighted to have been offered this contract, beginning in January, which recognises the hard work of the whole team, particularly my colleagues Peter Minnikin and Helen Taylor.
Duty solicitors with expertise in criminal proceedings play a very important role in offering advice to people who need legal representation, often under stressful circumstances, at the police station or in court.
McCormicks was the only Harrogate firm to be ranked for its work in Crime, both General and Fraud, in the latest edition of the UK Legal 500, one of the leading guides to the legal profession.
