My story

[p]I am a specialist family QC at 4 Paper Buildings. My chambers have long been committed to helping Advocate (formerly the Bar Pro Bono Unit) with its work as much as we can. As a long term supporter of Advocate I know the incredible difference the charity makes to people’s lives. By providing a gateway for the public to access barristers who can help, Advocate provide a life line to many and a chance to put their case fairly before a court which otherwise would be impossible. The cuts in public funding mean, sadly, that there are always going to be too many clients for Advocate to help but as more and more barristers sign up to give their time for free, to help the vulnerable, the charity’s reach extends. I have both represented individuals on behalf of Advocate and fundraised over several years. Both have been a privilege. I hope that by pounding the streets of London in the iconic marathon (my first) I can raise the profile of the Charity’s work even more. Ask any person who goes to court dealing with one of the most stressful experiences of their lives and ask them what they want – they all say, help! Advocate and the amazing barristers who give their time for nothing more than a desire to give that help, need our support more than ever. Thank you for your donations (and your support) however large or small.[/p][p] [/p]
