Marilyn has been a member of the Law Society Children Panel since April 2000. The Children Panel is an accreditation scheme introduced by The Law Society and is a recognised quality standard for family law.

In order to achieve this membership of excellence, solicitors undergo an independent assessment to demonstrate their experience in public and private law proceedings under the Children Act 1989. Marilyn has achieved and maintained this accreditation for over 12 years, which is testament to Marilyn’s extensive experience and knowledge in children law.


Introduced by The Law Society in January 2009, the scheme has become a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing. Applicant firms are assessed against a set of rigorous benchmarking standards to establish the integrity of their conveyancing staff and the service provided. This includes the team’s adherence to good practice management standards, as well as prudent and efficient conveyancing procedures through the scheme’s protocol. After months of assessment, SA Law’s Real Estate Department achieved CQS accreditation on 9th December 2011.


Resolution is a national organisation of family lawyers committed to non-confrontational divorce, separation and other family problems. This is a recognised quality standard in the UK and in order to achieve this membership of excellence, lawyers undergo an independent assessment to demonstrate their experience.
