Direct Access

What is direct access?

Traditionally members of the public could only access the services of a barrister by going through a solicitor, now  you can now go direct to a barrister.

Why go direct to a barrister? 

The main advantage of the direct access is that it could potentially save you money since you would be only be paying for a barrister instead of a barrister and solicitor.

What’s the catch?

You would have to do some of the work yourself such as sending letters and e-mails to the other parties in the case and the court. Not all cases are suitable for direct access and you may find the barrister you contact refers you to a solicitor.

Is my case suitable for public access?

Each case is unique once you have contacted us with brief details of your case we will be able to advise you if your case is suitable.
