Local family lawyer shortlisted for prestigious Resolution Award

20th April 2022


A family lawyer from Darlington has been nominated for a prestigious Resolution Award which celebrates family professionals who have championed the Resolution Code of Practice and played a part in creating a better family justice system for all.

Amanda Adeola of BHP Law is nominated for the EDI Champion which recognises members or groups who have shown a commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Amanda said: “I am thrilled to be nominated for a Resolution Award. The Resolution Code of Practice ensures that the tens of thousands of families who each year take the tough decision to separate can do so with as little conflict and confrontation as possible. It’s an honour that my work helping these families has been recognised by my peers.”

Juliet Harvey, National Chair of Resolution, said: “The judging panel arrived at a shortlist after much discussion and lengthy debate about the qualities of each entry - the high standard of which made the final decision very tough indeed. Family professionals have a tough job having to balance the needs of the whole family and our shortlisted candidates have all demonstrated their ability to excel in their roles while championing our non-confrontational values. Our shortlisted candidates are a truly inspiring group of people and I look forward to meeting the winners at our National Conference on 20 May.”

The Resolution Awards 2022 have five categories including the YRes Rising Star, the EDI Champion, Innovation, Working in Collaboration and John Cornwall awards that recognise the diverse and outstanding talent within the family justice community.
In total, 71 entries were made to the 2022 Resolution Awards. Winners will be announced at a special ceremony at Resolution’s National Conference (20-21 May) in Birmingham.
