The St. Mary’s team gives you access to a wide cross-section of barristers, ranging from junior tenants who have successfully completed pupillage with us to highly experienced senior practitioners with many years’ experience.
As family law specialists, we are always up to date with the latest changes in our field. This focus means we can provide you with more innovative solutions than other sets for whom family law is just one of a number of practice areas.
Everyone at St. Mary’s Chambers is committed to equality and diversity. We do not discriminate against clients, our members, pupils or staff on the grounds of gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion or beliefs.
All of our barristers are family law specialists. This means you can rest assured that every time you instruct St. Mary’s Chambers, you will be supported by a barrister with a practice dedicated to family law, not by a general practitioner for whom family cases may not be a main area of expertise.
Our members range from junior barristers – all of whom are family specialists most of whom completed their pupillage with us – through to senior practitioners with many years’ experience. This strength in depth means you will always have access to the right person, with the right experience, at the right fee level for your case.
However, in addition to providing the highest quality specialist advocacy, our barristers also recognise their services must be delivered with equally excellent levels of client care.
If you are a solicitor, your barrister will keep in close contact with you, providing the updates you need to manage your clients’ expectations. We will progress your case as quickly and efficiently as possible on your behalf so you can concentrate on meeting the other demands of your practice.
If you are a direct client, we will make sure your case is managed and progressed seamlessly, allowing you to concentrate on the other aspects of your family life that need your attention at what we know can be a stressful time.
While our barristers provide you with the specialist legal advice you need, our clerks make sure that advice is delivered with the highest possible level of service. As your main point of contact, they are on hand to make everything as easy as possible for you.
This starts with finding you the right barrister. Then, as your case progresses, it means staying in touch and updating you on progress. By regularly communicating with you, we make sure you don’t have to waste time or effort chasing us – time and effort you can use much more profitably for your practice, your clients or your family.
While client care is an area many chambers promote, at St. Mary’s Chambers we believe it is a vital part of good legal representation and we are proud to put it at the heart of everything we do.
We encourage both our instructing solicitors and our direct clients to provide honest feedback during and after every case. This is made available to everyone in chambers, with every issue acted upon and answered personally. We analyse common trends and implement solutions to make sure our level of service is not only maintained but also continually improved.
