For lawyers, Continuous Professional Development helps us to reflect, review and document our learning. CPD helps us develop and update our legal knowledge and skills. 

Here at Forces Law, all our members will undertake their own CPD as directed by their member firm, the Solicitors Regulatory Authority, the Law Society and accreditation authorities. 

In addition to the above, Forces Law offers all its members additional CPD on matters affecting our armed forces community. This is what sets Forces Law aside from other law firms. 

Clare Dalby, Solicitor and Chair of Forces Law says, “Producing highly trained specialists who our Armed Forces community can truly trust is our aim. Our commitment to Continuous Professional Development of our members is embedded in our specialist training programmes which we run throughout the year”. 

Over the past 12 months, our members have received CPD sessions on topics including Matrimonial matters, Interviewing Witnesses with PTSD, and AFCS Causation and Exemptions. Even matters not directly involving a military career can have an effect on any military career or pension and Forces Law put an emphasis on this in all our training. 

Maintaining current knowledge is key in an everchanging world especially for those who serve. Forces Law work closely with subject matter experts who deliver the latest information on changes to policies within the Armed Forces and recent relevant case law ensuring Forces Law is always ready to support our Armed Forces community with their legal matters.

What our clients say

Thank you for everything you have done!! You have been amazing from start to finish, I just wish I had come to you in the first place as my previous solicitor didn’t even know there were special rules for Armed Forces wives. Biscoes Solicitors.

(Bolt Burdon Kemp.) You have always been professional, meticulous, understanding, adaptable and really gone up and above in all aspect of our case and customer care. Not once during your representation have we had to worry or question your ability, directions, guidance or choice of experts or legal representation, which alleviates some of the worry and burden that litigation brings.

Sgt RLC, Military claims client.

(Wace Morgan Solicitors LLP) Very compassionate, caring and professional service. Very hard to improve on 100%. Good standard of service.

Do not hesitate to use Wolferstans as your solicitors. I have used them now on two occasions and they are quite simply the very best there is. Helpful, friendly, efficient but above all honest with you from start to finish. My most recent case was a triumph and that was down to their dedication and professional handling of the case. In short they saved me my future and I will be eternally grateful.

Mr Hall, Plymouth.
