A Chesterfield solicitor has this week become the new president of a national not-for-profit campaign organisation for injured people.
John Spencer, based at Spencers Solicitors in Chesterfield, will lead the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers’ (APIL) 4,000-strong membership for the next 12 months.
“I’m passionate about the rights of injured people and I believe everyone should have access to the highest standards of professional excellence to support them, during what can be a very difficult and distressing time,” said John.
“For this reason, I am genuinely proud and delighted to step into the role of president.”
“I will use my 30 years’ experience of working within the legal sector to support APIL in achieving its objectives of securing fairer treatment for the victims of all types of personal injury,” he continued. “Leading this organisation is about 100 per cent commitment to injured people, and pursuing without apology the right course for victims of negligence.”
