As well as accepting instructions the traditional way, which is from solicitors, he is registered with the Bar Council to do Direct Public Access work, allowing anyone to have legal work done by Bill without first having to go to a solicitor.
Direct Access can be cost effective in many cases, because a barrister normally charges less per hour than a solicitor of equivalent experience. In addition if you are in a position where you will need to use a barrister or you just want to have a barrister involved, having just one lawyer working for you, instead of two, can bring significant cost savings. This is a real opportunity to have direct personal contact with your expert lawyer from the very start. You can find out more about Direct Public Access here http://directaccess-
If you want to find out how Bill can help, you can have a free, no obligation, consultation which will include initial advice and suggestions of appropriate ways to deal with your legal matter. If requested Bill will provide a quote detailing the work to be done and importantly the charges for that work. See more information here http://corshamlaw.co.uk.
There will be no nasty surprises about how much your lawyer is going to cost you and there is no scope for any hidden extras either. What you see in the quote is what you will be charged if you agree to have the work done.
Areas of law covered include advice and representation in Employment Law and Criminal Law matters, including motoring offences (e.g. disqualification hearings). He can also draft legal documents, business agreements (e.g. Terms & Conditions or partnership agreements for your business) or if he can help you to write your Will.
It is not every case that is suitable for Direct Public Access as sometimes the complexity or particular requirements of a case mean it is not suited to a barrister working alone. In these circumstances Bill will advise you to either go to a solicitor or that some of the work that needs doing in the course of case preparation must be done by a solicitor.
So if you want to speak directly to a barrister and make your own mind up who you want to do legal work for you, why not speak to Bill Ryan. Bear in mind that some of the work Bill does can be done remotely using any of the available methods of communication including video conferencing and Skype so distance is not necessarily an obstacle.
