Belfast and Newry-based JMK Solicitors are celebrating after being awarded the prestigious Lexcel Quality Mark for the legal profession.

The Law Society of Northern Ireland scheme recognises firms which achieve excellence in legal practice management and client care.

Assessors highlighted that JMK achieved “a very high standard” and the “company had gone above and beyond compliance with the standard”. They also praised JMK’s “pioneering” approach to having a paperless office with all files being managed electronically.

Managing director Maurece Hutchinson said: “This is great recognition for the professionalism and dedication of our 60-strong team. It also demonstrates our commitment to providing the best possible customer service.

“As a specialist law firm operating solely in the area of personal injury claims and in particular cases relating to road traffic incidents, we will continue to make significant investment in our IT system and staff development to ensure we maintain the Lexcel accreditation.”

Martin Rice, managing director of Next Level Impact, a management consultancy firm who assisted JMK through the process, added: “I would like to congratulate JMK Solicitors on their award.

“We were very impressed with how the firm approached the assessment. They have robust systems and processes in place to ensure they offer a consistently high level of service.”
