Asner Chambers is able to offer, in some circumstances, the instruction of a barrister directly, without the need to instruct a solicitor first. This relates to the areas of law mentioned above, and is subject to initial assessment of your case, and a check on your eligibility for Public Funding (Legal Aid).

Under regulation, we are unable to offer Direct Public Access if you are eligible for Public Funding, and it may be necessary to instruct a solicitor first in these circumstances. Barristers cannot carry out means assessment to establish whether you would qualify for funding, but you can use the Legal Service Commission's Eligibility Calculator for this purpose. The link is:

To instruct a barrister, please contact Chambers, preferably by email, fax, or post, with a brief outline of your case or what help you are seeking. If a barrister is assigned to help, it may then be necessary to arrange a short free meeting or discussion.
