If you require representation at Court the Barrister Representation Service provides a cost effective solution. Motor Lawyers will prepare your case and instruct one of our specialist Barristers to represent you on the day. We will discuss the case fully with you (allow at least an hour for this), prepare a detailed statement, clarify the Court process/Court etiquette and advise on any further action required prior to the hearing. Motor Lawyers will brief Counsel well in advance of the hearing, supplying detailed instructions outlining the pros and cons of your case, the tactics to be adopted and will consider with the Barrister the quality of all documentation/evidence. Unlike some of our competitors, we do not simply act as a post box for the Barrister. Motor Lawyers will only instruct a Barrister from our approved panel.
The fee covers all costs of the Barrister attending Court for one hearing and includes presentation of the case, all preparation and reading time on the part of the Barrister, any pre–hearing discussion with you, travel time and waiting time. The fee is payable approximately 7 days in advance of the hearing.
If additional attendances are required or the hearing is in a particularly remote location, additional costs may be incurred but in those circumstances, Motor Lawyers will only proceed with your prior agreement.
