The benefits of talking to a specialist barrister

You will want to know your true legal position as soon as possible.

My best advice to you is that you take action now. It will help relieve some of the worry and uncertainty that can grind you down. Also it will quite possibly save you time, money and more problems in the future.

Get the right criminal law legal advice faster

In the past you would have contacted a solicitor first, they would then refer you on to a specialist barrister. Rather than following this process you can now contact some barristers directly yourself.

This way you will have the help that you need almost immediately. Avoiding unnecessary delays, you will also avoid the extra expense that is incurred when being referred by a solicitor.

You can email or call Stewart Patterson for this. As an experienced barrister of long standing, he has much experience and a depth of knowledge with criminal law cases.

You can make your initial enquiry by phone or email and this is free to do. After that all work is carried out on a fixed cost basis, so you will always know exactly where you stand.

You should make contact straight away if…

  • Police investigations have just begun
  • You have been arrested
  • You are in custody
  • You are unhappy with your current legal representation
  • You have been bailed
  • You have been bailed and are expecting to appear in court
