Litigation Services Newcastle, Durham, Sunderland

Being a direct access barrister, I offer you the same legal services as a High Street Firm of Solicitors. When you work with solicitors, you are given a barrister the day of the case without any prior knowledge of them. When getting repaired for a legal case, you want a familiar face you know you can trust with you throughout the whole journey.

Direct access barrister’s have more flexibility than solicitors. I will help you prepare for your legal case and will provide you with legal advice from the beginning, right up until the very end. This gives you continuity, so you can rest assured that on the day of your legal case, you’ll have a reliable, trial barrister to turn to. I will also give you the option to manage your own case if you’d prefer.

Whilst I can also save you at least 35% on your legal fees

I will always give 20 minutes free initial consultation over Phone, Skype or Zoom. I’m also always available to provide any legal advice you may need.

North East Barristers Chambers provides legal services within the areas of business/commercial law (including disputes), civil law, debt claims, criminal law, road traffic law, family law, military law, immigration law, employment law and wills and estate planning (including attorneyship),

Based in County Durham with easy access to Durham, Newcastle, Cumbria, Sunderland, Northumberland and North Yorkshire but willing to act for clients throughout England and Wales.

Legal cases are very confusing and can be extremely taxing sometimes. If you would like a fully qualified, expert direct access barrister to help you through your court proceedings, give me a call on 07491041812.
