Court Advocacy

Ashley Taylors Legal have an experienced advocacy team who attend all County Courts in England and Wales on all matters that are heard before a District Judge in Chambers.

 

Acting for both Claimants and Defendants we can provide a no fuss solution to get the best outcome for your client. 

 

Our specialism is in Landlord & Tenant Law but we attend all hearings in the County Court, except Family Law, including:

  • Landlord & Tenant
  • Mortgage Repossession
  • Infant Settlement/Approval Hearing
  • Charging Orders
  • Bankruptcy
  • Attachment of Earnings
  • Injunctions 

 

Our court attendances are provided on a fixed fee structure which includes preparation time and travel costs meaning you know exactly how much our service will cost you from the initial instruction. 

 

This means that it will often be more cost effective for you to instruct us rather than send one of your fee earners. 

 

Our results speak for themselves and we have outstanding results in achieving Orders as Instructed. 

 

All our Advocate services are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).

Our Services 

From initial instruction to final outcome we provide a reliable and efficient service that can be tailored to suit your needs. 

 

You can instruct us by whatever method suits you best be that by electronic or traditional postal means. Our client portal “ATLIS” is also available for you to instruct us over the internet.

 

We believe that the human touch is still important and our experienced Account Administrators are friendly and believe a good rapport with a client makes everything easier.

 

All you need to do is tell us when and where you want us to appear, the type of hearing, send us the papers  and we do the rest.

 

All instructions are recorded using our bespoke system which tracks that we have everything we need for the hearing and makes sure that your hearing is never missed.

 

After the hearing our Advocate immediately informs us of the outcome, including the details of any relevant orders, and we send you a summary report so you have all the relevant facts as soon as possible.

 

Within one working day of the hearing we will send you a detailed attendance report for the hearing.

 

Our Advocates 

We pride ourselves on our rigorous Advocate selection and training programme and we are confident that our Advocates will get the best possible result for you. Only about 16% of candidates pass our selection process from application to final assessment.

 

Only Advocates who we are certain have the required ability and personality to conform to our exacting criteria are used. We would rather not send anyone than someone we had even the slightest doubt about.

 

Even once the Advocate has passed our stringent evaluation process we continually assess and monitor our Advocates and any feedback about their performance is always appreciated and noted.

 

We make sure that all our Advocates are kept up to date with any changes in the law or procedures that effect the work they do.

 

Our reputation is built on the standard of our Advocates and we are confident that if you instruct us the Advocate who attends court, will be the next best thing to you being there yourself.
