Direct Access Barrister

Often cheaper than going to a solicitor

So you need some legal representation? Good news, you are in the right place. I’m a direct access barrister which means that you can instruct me if you so choose to, without having to go through a solicitor first.

What this means is that often it can be more cost effective to skip the solicitor and go straight to a direct access barrister.

Now, don’t get me wrong, solicitors are great and if you think you want to instruct me I am required to consider if you need a solicitor first.

I cover most of the country and am happy to travel. We can meet by Zoom if that is convenient for you.

I practice mostly chancery areas of law which means disputes regarding property, land, when someone has died and also business disputes. I also advise and represent clients in matrimonial finance matters, also called financial remedy.

Services I provide include:

  • Representing you in court
  • Giving you advice in a meeting between us (called a conference)
  • Providing a written advice
  • Drafting court documents including claim form, particulars of claim, defence, reply, part 18 requests and other legal documents
  • Attending a mediation with you
  • Conducting a site visit for example where there is a dispute between neighbours

When you are ready, go to the contact page and fill out the form. I will be in touch to talk about the next step.
