Quality Standards

Howells Solicitors is authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, ensuring that we meet high standards and follow the correct professional principles and code of conduct.

We have a number of accreditations awarded by the The Law Society, which have been verified and give recognition of our expertise in specific areas of law. Our accredited areas include Family Law, Clinical Negligence, Personal Injury, Immigration, Conveyancing and Mental Health Review Tribunal.

Howells has also been awarded the Lexcel accreditation, the Law Society’s international practice management standard. This highly recognised accreditation is only awarded to solicitors who meet the highest management and customer care standards.

We are consistently highly ranked in Legal 500 and Chambers, both of which are independent directories that identify the leading lawyers and solicitors throughout the UK.

Many of our solicitors are personally accredited by various panels. In our Family law department, many of the solicitors are Resolution Accredited – an organisation whose members are committed to resolving family disputes with a non-confrontational approach that considers the needs of the whole family, in particular children.

Howells is also recognised as an Equal Opportunities Employer and holds a Positive about Disabled People award.
