Double joy for legal exec


A litigation executive from Coodes Solicitors has been given two accreditations by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL), a leading national organisation for personal injury law.

Catherine Hyde, who is based in Coodes’ Falmouth office, has been awarded APIL’s quality mark for her expertise in seeking justice for people who have been injured in an accident that was not their fault.

Hyde, who is part of Coodes’ growing personal injury and clinical negligence team, has received two accreditations from APIL, achieving recognition both as a litigator and a portal claims handler.

She said: “I am very pleased to have been recognised by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.

“Achieving this recognition means a lot because it is based on the quality of my work and the breadth of my experience. I am especially proud to be the only Cornwall-based litigation executive to have been recognised in this way.”
