We pride ourselves on our customer service and in-depth knowledge of the law. As such, we are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for two categories in the Modern Law Private Client Awards.

Being shortlisted for these awards is not just an acknowledgment of our expertise but also a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our entire team. Each member of our firm brings a wealth of experience, compassion, and professionalism to their work, ensuring that our clients receive the best possible service.

The Modern Law Private Client awards are hosted by Modern Law Magazine. A publication dedicated to celebrating the human side of law. Their approach is to spotlight the law firms that uplift their customers and employees. These awards resonate with both our ethos and attitude to clients and the wider community.  

Private Client Team - Family Law Award

Our fantastic Family team have a reputation in the industry for outstanding customer service and proficiency.  

In 2023, Legal 500 said of our Family team:

“Winston Solicitors have the gems of the Northern matrimonial finance world. Though the family team has only been set up in recent years, they have strength and depth of experience. They are the absolute go-to team”  

The Winston Solicitors’ Family team understands the sensitive and often emotional nature of the issues associated with family matters and divorce. Each case is approached with empathy and a deep understanding of the law. In this way, we strive to support our clients through what can be one of the most challenging periods of their lives. Being shortlisted in the Modern Law Private Client Awards under this category acknowledges our ability to balance legal acumen with personal compassion, providing a service that is holistic and effective.  

Our clients’ feedback consistently highlights our supportive and reassuring presence, which is central to how we practice law. This nomination is a clear indication that our approach is widely recognised by our clients and the industry. We are proud to have the Family team on board. They are such a complement to the firm’s values.

Private Client Team - Wills & Probate (1-15 Solicitors)

Similarly, our nomination for the Wills & Probate category recognises our meticulous and personalised approach to helping clients who are often elderly and vulnerable. Drafting wills and managing probate requires not only an in-depth understanding of the law but also a sensitive approach to the personal and often emotional implications for each client. Our Private Client team excels in offering tailored advice that respects individual needs and circumstances, ensuring peace of mind during what can be a difficult time.  

The recognition in this category reaffirms our reputation for reliability, thoroughness, and compassion in handling such essential matters.  

“Winston Solicitors were efficient, yet warm in all of my dealings with them.  All colleagues were courteous and professional, from initial enquiry to first visit to their premises and right through to completing the probate process.  Monika was the solicitor that managed my case - I found Monika to be knowledgeable, patient and kind - just what is needed after a bereavement. She answered my numerous questions, provided good advice and was flexible with regard to managing meeting times.  I would highly recommend Winston Solicitors and I would not hesitate to use them in the future.”

We Look Forward to the Modern Law Private Client Awards Ceremony

Our motto, "When Service Wins," is more than just a slogan; it’s at the heart of everything we do. It reflects our belief that excellent service is the cornerstone of successful legal practice. Each interaction, every piece of advice is driven by our commitment to quality service. This approach has not only seen us shortlisted in these categories, but has also built long-lasting relationships with our clients, who trust us to act in their best interests.

We are excited about the upcoming awards ceremony and look forward to celebrating this achievement with our colleagues and the broader legal community. Regardless of the outcome, being recognised in such esteemed company is a victory in itself and a testament to the exceptional service we provide. Thank you for your continued support and trust in our firm
