I have been practicing from Chambers in Canterbury since 1992 covering a range of areas of work, principally involving “civil” disputes, i.e. issues between individuals, businesses and local authorities.
As well as providing representation in Court, Direct Access instructions allow me to advise you in conferences, correspond with the other side in efforts to avoid matters going to court, prepare Letters before Claim, pleadings (e.g. the Particulars of Claim, Defence, Statement of Case, etc.) and witness statements and attend mediation.
I pride myself on providing pragmatic, effective and sound advice, and will assist and support you through what may be an unfamiliar process and for you – with the aim of reduce the associated stress.
