A FIRM of solicitors with offices in Chard and Ilminster said they are “thrilled” to have been shortlisted for a national award.

Milford and Dormor LLP who have offices in Devon and Somerset have been shortlisted in the National Modern Law Awards in one of the Client Care Categories.

Bill Bennett solicitor consultant and practice manager said: “Everyone in the firm is thrilled that it has been shortlisted in these national awards.

“It is not the first time that we have got to this stage in a national competition which we regard as a great achievement in itself and it would be wonderful to think that we could go beyond being one of the finalists.

“The firm has always prided itself on the care it gives, particularly the special services for the older clients and those with disabilities, amongst other things, offering free initial interviews and home visits being particularly helpful for those with mobility problems.

“The firm will not know if we manage to get any further than being finalists until the Gala Awards night takes place in London on March 7.”
