What is an Accredited Specialist?
An Accredited Specialist is a person who is recognised by the Queensland Law Society as being an expert in their field of law. The program provides the general public with a reliable way to identify lawyers who have a high level of expertise in a particular area. Brad Shanahan, partner, is a Accredited Specialist in Personal Injuries Law and has been practising as a solicitor acting for injured claimants for in excess of 25 years. Brad is the only Accredited Specialist in Personal Injuries Law in the Mackay region and is also an accredited mediator, having undergone mediation skills training.
An Accredited Specialist must meet the following criteria as set down by the Queensland Law Society:
- Pass a comprehensive and rigorous examination process developed by legal professional experts to demonstrate they have the required knowledge and skills to be an Accredited Specialist in their chosen area.
- Each year, to be re-accredited they must maintain a high degree of professional development in their area of specialisation. Accredited Specialists have to do more study than other lawyers and in particular the majority of their professional development each year must be in their chosen area of speciality.
- To be an Accredited Specialist they must have a minimum of five years full-time practice experience and a minimum of three years experience in their area of specialisation.
