The Benefit of Cartwright King Advocacy Services

The key benefit of Cartwright King’s advocacy services is the continuity of legal representation, which makes a big difference in cases. Continual representation ensures that the full details of your case are thoroughly understood and momentum is kept. This gives you the best possible defence.

Working with lawyers in one firm means that your case isn’t passed off, which can cause delays, increase costs and leaves you having to explain your case repeatedly. Cartwright King’s specialist advocacy team takes care of all your paperwork, can call on specialist barristers and instruct any witnesses for your case.

From start to finish, Cartwright King is right beside you to give you the highest standard of legal representation and doing everything we can to achieve the best outcome.

Frequently asked questions.

What is advocacy?

Advocacy is considered a key skill in the legal profession and is often associated with Barristers, but more and more solicitors are now gaining qualifications that give them similar rights to Barristers.

This allows solicitors to represent clients in Court, where they would otherwise have to instruct a Barrister to advocate for their cases. The extra qualification gained by a solicitor allows them to represent an individual throughout their entire case, ensuring continual and consistent legal representation.
