We are now ISO accredited

Forum Law is keen to pursue the processes and protocols it has developed in acquiring ISO accreditation in August. This is quite an achievement for us and involved a committed and consistent effort on the part of our staff, particularly our Practice Manager Karen Schmitzer. We look forward to serving you with the confidence of our proven “silver service” accreditation.
