BARRISTERS

FROM SHENSMITH

Direct Access barristers can provide you with legal advice and representation without the need to go to a solicitor. A Direct Access barrister can provide you an initial advice, a full consultation and advising service, and representation at any hearings if your case ultimately goes to court.

Most importantly, your barrister can advise you as to what your current position is, often for a fixed fee, so that you can ascertain the best course of action before committing to a huge expense and a long legal battle.

Below are some of the Direct Access barristers that provide services for clients at ShenSmith Barristers:
