From Direct Access Client:
Charlie was recommended to me by a barrister friend who sadly does not deal with children’s cases any more. I have been using Charlie for a period of over a year now in what is a complex case, that has a few differences from the normal vanilla separation.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Charlie to anyone requiring a direct access barrister. If you are capable of listening, and performing the duties that are required of a litigant in person, he will be a highly cost effective route to excellent legal representation. His recommendations and position statements make perfect sense, his presentation of them is immaculate, and that ensures a sensible outcome with the bare minimum of fuss.
Charlie is affordable, affable and highly effective; a superb addition to the direct access to the bar scheme.
