It is widely known that if your case is complex or if you want to ensure the best result for your case then you need to instruct a barrister. Traditionally if you wanted a legal professional to speak on your behalf and represent you in court including the Crown Court and the High Court this was achieved by the use of a barrister.
For some years now however it has been recognised that solicitors with significant experience, training and accreditation could provide a first class service to a client without the need to instruct a barrister. The advantage for our client is that there is a stability of knowledge concerning their case, as all matters are handled by us rather than delegated to barristers. A detailed knowledge of you and your case is built up before getting to court and vital knowledge is more easily shared if it is dealt with by the same legal representative from start to finish.
Representation in family court
Would a barrister represent me better in the courts?
Whilst barristers are often very skilled and aim to deliver a high standard of service to their clients solicitor advocates at Harwood Solicitors are accredited as a result of significant training and experience. As a consequence solicitor advocates are able to guarantee a first rate service to clients.
Can the same person handle my case all the way through?
Where possible we aim to ensure consistency of representation. We have a dedicated team who ensure that our clients are represented by advocates who have a continuous working knowledge of the case.
How are you able to offer competitive rates?
By handling the case from beginning to end we are able to avoid the additional cost involved in briefing a third party. Our team structure ensures that the advocate representing you in court is up to date with all developments in the case and ensures that there is no delay or additional costs by any duplication of work.
Will the use of an in-house advocate at Harwood Solicitors make it easier for me to keep in touch and communicate with my advocate?
Yes and in the event that the advocate involved in your case is unavailable at any time, your question will be dealt with by another member of the team.
