The team at CDQ is highly regarded across the profession for our expertise and knowledge of the law, as well as our commitment to clients. Our lawyers Geraldine Daley AM and David Pena are both accredited by the NSW Law Society as Specialists in the field of Personal Injury, and Nicolas Moore is an Accredited Specialist in Wills & Estates Law. All three lawyers must maintain their accreditation by undertaking a high level of continuing education and professional development in their respective fields every year.
Specialist Accreditation is a structured peer assessment process that requires lawyers to draw on their existing knowledge and skills to demonstrate their competency in their chosen area of law.
The objective of the Specialist Accreditation Scheme is to:
- Provide the profession and the public with a reliable means of identifying practitioners with proven expertise in their chosen area of law.
- Contribute to and encourage the continued development and improvement of the standards, quality and delivery of legal services.
- Promote the advancement of legal knowledge and skills.
- Provide practitioners with the opportunity to demonstrate their expertise in their chosen area of law and to have this recognised.
Geraldine, David and Nicolas are committed to providing the best possible advice to clients, regardless of the circumstances, and can quickly identify the key issues in any case and the likely outcome. At all times, they will give realistic and practical advice regarding your case, allowing you to make informed decisions, and then work with you to determine the best course of action. They are always accessible and understand the importance of keeping their clients informed, each and every step of the way.
