Why instruct your own private barrister?
It's all about expertise

When you’re facing a legal case, you need top people on your team.

By going straight to a barrister on the national Stobart panel, you'll get the right person, the right advice and save time in the process.

The cost will be fixed up front (sometimes, just a few hundred pounds for the initial, expert opinion) and there will be no delay, no solicitor's bill and no wondering whether you've made the best choice.

If you decide to proceed with your case, a further fixed fee will be negotiated that covers all the barrister’s time and also includes the cost of the professional support that will keep you informed and prepare your case properly.

  As a result of a property dispute with my ex partner from an arranged marriage, I had had lengthy discussions with both a solicitor and barrister but was not happy with the advice from either.

I contacted Stobart Barristers the day before the hearing although I thought it would be too late. They arranged the barrister within the hour. They then arranged for the papers to be delivered and we had a telephone conference later that day. The two day hearing took place and the barrister was absolutely amazing. The judge fully understood the case presented and I retained the properties.

This proves you do not require months and weeks of letters and preparation cost. You just require the right barrister. I would never have found this barrister without the help of Stobart. I thought because my case was in Oldham it would be a Manchester barrister when in fact my barrister was from a Leeds chambers. I would recommend Stobart Barristers to anyone who is looking for advice and representation without the significant cost of meetings and letters. My fee was fixed at the outset so I knew exactly what my case would cost before I commenced.

  I'm finally able to sleep again – it's been a while! It was a stressful time, but I must thank you for your help and that of the barrister you provided. He was amazing. I felt I should write to tell you what a marvellous job he did. He listened intently and made me feel very comfortable – and he knew exactly what he was talking about. I felt confident when I met and spoke with him. As a result my case was reduced from ABH to common assault and the second charge was dropped. I would definitely recommend your services to anyone who needed help. Thanks again.

  I was charged with failing to provide a specimen. My local solicitor said I had no case. I contacted Stobart Barristers, who arranged an expert road traffic barrister to represent me. The fee was fixed and therefore I knew that, if my case was adjourned, it would not cost me any more. I had a previous driving offence conviction within the past 10 years, so knew that, if convicted, I would be disqualified from driving for 3 years. Following a full day trial involving a Newton Hearing, my licence was endorsed with 10 points and I received a defendants’ costs order, which means I will get some of my costs back. The court file was actually marked "solicitor says no defence but defendant wishes to proceed to trial". It just proves how getting expert legal advice can really change your life. I would recommend Stobart Barristers to everyone.
