Our solicitor advocates work closely with our experienced solicitors and clients, as required, to ensure the best possible outcome.

Our team provides a seamless service to clients and direct access to the people who will be representing their interests in court, whether that is one of our solicitor advocates or another advocate drawn from the Bar.
