Edgar Venal, Senior Partner at Venal & Grabbit, has been made OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours. The award was made for his outstanding contribution to the public understanding of what it really means to be a family lawyer (and for his outstanding contributions to a certain political party, but that's another story).
Upon hearing of the award, Egdar Venal said: "With what I've done for family law, it should have been a knighthood. Still, one mustn't look a gift horse in the mouth... I wonder if my time spent at the Palace will be billable?"
