Cwmbran-based law firm Rubin Lewis O’Brien has been nominated for an award at the first Wales Legal Awards.

The Family Department at the firm is a finalist in the Family Law Team of the Year category.

Partner and head of family department Valerie Henley said: “We are thrilled to be finalists at the inaugural Wales Legal Awards 2019. It is an honour to represent the sector as Family Law Team of the Year.

"The family team here pride ourselves on being professional and dedicated, offering a holistic approach to the problems arising from all areas of relationship breakdown, planning both for the present and the future.

“It can be an emotionally difficult and painful time and we do everything in our power to help it run smoothly. We deal with people at a time that can be very stressful and I am proud to say that every member of our team goes above and beyond for our clients.”

The Wales Legal Awards has been established to celebrate the success of those practising in and providing services to the legal profession. The black-tie event will take place in May at the Mercure Cardiff Holland House Hotel.
