Mr Makin's clients include famillies of Hillsborough victims
Merseyside's longest serving solicitor, who represented the Beatles' manager and Hillsborough families, has been given parliamentary recognition.
A House of Commons motion was tabled to celebrate 60 years since lawyer Rex Makin, aged 83, qualified.
Eddie O'Hara, Knowsley South MP who led the motion, described Mr Makin as a "Liverpool legend in his lifetime".
His famous clients included Brian Epstein who managed the Beatles and the Walton Sextuplets.
Mr Makin was awarded the Freedom of the City by Liverpool councillors in 2003 for his work with the arts and the legal sector.
He was the family solicitor to Brian Epstein from 1963 and advised about contractual arrangements for the Beatles and was credited with coining the term 'Beatlemania'.
The Labour MP told the House of Commons: "In his long career he has been involved in many high profile cases of local, national and international interest including the Cameo murders and Heysel stadium disasters.
"He also represented the interests of countless ordinary Liverpudlians."
Mr Makin, who is still practicing law at his firm in Liverpool told BBC News: "I've had a wonderful career.
"I've worked on some tragedies including the Hillsborough disaster and some great stories like the Walton sextuplets from Wirral.
"It is nice to be noted for my work."
