Mark Ford KC – Lincoln House ChambersMark is one of a kind – his attention to detail is second to none and he can be relied upon to find out the material within a case which will challenge the prosecution case. He is very thorough in his case preparation and will leave no stone unturned in trying to find any areas of weakness for the Crown. He is a pleasure to work with, considerate and always open to discussions and welcoming the instructing solicitor’s opinion on matters, never making decisions without asking for input first.’
