Dere Street Barristers are delighted to congratulate Elizabeth Callaghan on her award for Legal Aid Barrister of the Year 2016. Elizabeth was honoured to accept the award at a ceremony in London yesterday evening which acknowledged and celebrated the work of the 'often-unsung legal aid heroes working to protect the rights of the most vulnerable in society'.

Elizabeth was nominated for the award by the entire family department at David Gray Solicitors who commented that they rely on her 'courtesy and compassion for some of the most challenging cases, often involving clients with mental health issues'.

Elizabeth's colleagues in Chambers praise her as being an exceptionally talented barrister who puts compassion before career and as being as special a person outside the courtroom as she is a formidable advocate inside it.

Chairman of the Bar, Chantal-Aimée Doerries QC extended her congratulations to Elizabeth; "The glowing references supporting your outstanding advocacy and courtesy, compassion and expertise are inspiring and a real tribute to you and the bar. Very well done and keep up the fantastic work."
