Our Military Team recognises service life is unique and those who serve require expert representation by those who understand the service environment and justice system.
Our team is a unique collaboration of specialist barristers with expertise in criminal, military, civil and family law who have additional expertise in service law and life which they bring to bear to give service personnel, both serving and retired the best possible outcomes. We can work directly with service personnel in need of help as well as accepting instructions from Solicitors in the more traditional manner.
