Stephen is a top QC and criminal barrister who offers direct access to his services for clients with criminal cases.
There are some cases for which Stephen can offer his services directly to the public, and direct access can have a number of advantages:
- The client will meet Stephen at an early stage and work together with him to take the important decisions relating to strategy and tactics;
- The client will receive advice directly from Stephen regarding the nature and seriousness of any allegation being made together with the strength of the evidence in the case;
- The client has the added benefit of knowing from the outset that Stephen will be his/her barrister and that he will conduct all correspondence, engage in negotiations and prepare appropriate documents.
It may be that your case is not suitable for the direct instruction of a barrister, or that it becomes necessary to instruct a solicitor at a particular point. Stephen can advise you on this and should the instruction of a solicitor become necessary he can identify and instruct an appropriately expert firm.
