Direct Access Cases – Principles I Follow Before Taking Cases On

Civil/Commercial Disputes

If you are a Claimant/Defendant I will only take on a case if you come to me at the start and have me prepare the case (unless you are sacking a solicitor and bringing the case over to me).  If you have acted as a litigant in person in starting or defending the case, the only work I will take on is to represent you at a final hearing (you will be a litigant in person for the purpose of the court and you will communicate with the other side – not me) I will agree a fee to prepare a skeleton argument for the hearing. I will only then put forward at court the case you have set out in your particulars of claim or your defence.

Family Cases – Children  

If you are a Claimant/Defendant I will only take on a case if you come to me at the start and have me prepare the case (unless you are sacking a solicitor and bringing the case over to me).  If you have acted as a litigant in person in starting or defending the case, the only work I will take on is to represent you at a final hearing (you will be a litigant in person for the purpose of the court and you will communicate with the other side – not me) I will agree a fee to prepare a skeleton argument for the hearing. I will only then put forward at court the case you have set out in your C100 or your defence.

Family Cases – Divorce 

If you are a Claimant/Defendant I will only take on a case if you come to me at the start and have me prepare the case (unless you are sacking a solicitor and bringing the case over to me).  If you have acted as a litigant in person in starting or defending the case, the only work I will take on is to represent you at a final hearing (you will be a litigant in person for the purpose of the court and you will communicate with the other side – not me) I will agree a fee to prepare a skeleton argument for the hearing. I will only then put forward at court the case you have set out in your Form E.
