We are delighted and honoured to continue supporting the incredible work Advocate provides to those most in need, throughout the UK, seeking access to justice.
"It is only with the support of donations like yours that we can provide access to justice to people who would otherwise be on their own in the legal system. The demand on our service has increased across the first half of 2022 and we anticipate it growing even further as we come up against a cost of living crisis that is resulting in more people being unable to afford the legal support they desperately need. The support of our patrons is therefore more important than ever before.
The difference that can be made is best summed up in the words of some of those we have recently matched with a barrister:
“I wanted to message and say thank you for agreeing the additional support to take [my] case forward…I would not have been able to achieve the outcome I have without your support and especially [the barrister] agreeing to take on my case in the first place for which I am extremely grateful. I have hopefully my last cancer treatment in a few weeks and can now move on and look forward to the future without this case hanging over me.”
“This news has actually made me cry. I was almost not going to read this email as today has been a heartbreaking day, thank so much. I can confirm I will so happy for [the barrister] to act for me at the hearing.”
We are incredibly grateful for all that Hewetson & Co does to support Advocate in our goal of achieving access to justice for all and would like to thank you once again for this generous donation."
When considering a chambers move with my team, I met with all the major players in the industry. Guy and Tony were our clear preferred choice.
They were authentic in their approach, challenged us when they felt it necessary and ultimately delivered a seamless service. Most importantly they showed complete discretion, which was for us the most important criteria.
Their reputation for being leaders in their field is well deserved and I would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
