  • Road Traffic Offences
  • Driving Offences
  • Animal Health
  • Environmental Health Law
  • Regulatory Compliance

If you have been issued with an enforcement notice or summons of any description we can advise and represent you according to your needs.

Why are we different?

Direct Access enables you to come straight to a Barrister of your own choice who will give you straightforward, thorough and specialist advice on every aspect of your case and the options that might be open to you.

We are in an excellent position to advise and inform you of the best tactics and strategies to adopt from the outset and you will have total control over what you decide to spend. 

We are there to represent you throughout the whole case from giving initial advice, to the day when you actually may appear in Court.

A specialist advocate in either the Crown Court or before the Magistrates can make a significant difference to the end result and could help save unnecessary costs.
