Local solicitor appointed to Law Society Panel


A Newport and Pontypool-based solicitor has been recognised for her work within the personal injury field through an appointment to the Law Society’s PI panel.


Watkins and Gunn’s Lynette Vaughan, from Abergavenny, has been promoted to the prestigious panel following a rigorous screening process. 


As a member of this panel, Lynette, who has already gained senior litigator status from the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL), is now recognised as a genuine expert in the field of personal injury.


Lynette, who is an Associate at the firm, said, “I have been specialising in personal injury work for the past ten years and consequently have experience of working on a complex and diverse range of cases. There are many solicitors offering personal injury advice but very few are recognised by the Law Society Panel so I am extremely proud to have been approved. The application process was very extensive but it was definitely worth it and all the hard work has definitely paid off.”

Lynette originally started at Watkins & Gunn in 1998 as an office junior before undertaking an Institute of Legal Executives (ILEX) course while working initially as a secretary and then a paralegal. Lynette qualified as a member of the Institute of Legal Executives (ILEX) in 2002 and went on to become a Fellow of the Institute.


Lynette joins colleagues Clive Thomas and Jonathan Wellington on the PI panel. Managing partner Clive commented, “Lynette has worked extremely hard and it’s been wonderful to see how she has developed and taken full advantage of all of the opportunities that she has been given. Lynette thoroughly deserves all of her success including this most recent achievement. Clients coming to our firm, following an accident can be sure that they will get the best available advice and a high quality service from Lynette and her team.”
