I am a qualified and practising barrister, and part-time law lecturer, specialising in civil litigation, commercial litigation, and private family law matters. I am based in Walsall and I am happy to travel to any court within the wider area of the Midlands. My direct access clients generally instruct me to deal with disputes regarding contact with their children, but I am also regularly instructed for contractual claims and property disputes. A large proportion of my work is direct access, and so I have significant experience in meeting the needs of people who have not previously had the benefit of legal advice.

With the benefit of a Master of Laws with distinction, I was called to the Bar in 2014, bringing a wealth of commercial acumen and case management experience; not least from my previous employment with two leading law firms and a major insurance provider. Further, having worked for a top national provider of advocacy services for a number of years prior to pupillage, I have a well-established reputation as an accomplished advocate.

As a practising barrister, I pride myself on the attention to detail and depth of research that I apply to each and every case, approaching both the factual and legal matrix of each matter on which I am instructed with absolute thoroughness, care and accuracy.

In addition, I am regularly commended for my natural ability to solve problems, not to mention my impeccable standards of client-care. By way of testimonial it has been said of me:

"Gareth is a dedicated and well-prepared advocate who goes the extra mile to meet the client’s objectives."
- Jaskaran Dhillon - D & N Solicitors.

"Gareth is beyond amazing. I was assisting a law firm with an issue, requiring relief from sanction on a matter and I needed Counsel. Gareth was recommended to me by Clerksroom. I’d never worked with Gareth before but it didn’t take long to instill confidence in me. I would have no hesitation in instructing Gareth again. If anything, I would actively seek him out as a preference."
- Alec Hancock - Consultant Chartered Legal Executive

"I enrolled the services of Gareth for a Family Court Case (2020) and what a difference this man made. His understanding of what was important just by reading the case files prepared for him was excellent. His communication in final preparation was empathic and thorough to the point I believed I would succeed before attending court. His command of the courtroom was a joy to watch and the cross examination of all parties Gareth performed was again superb. Gareth was calm and full of honest application, keeping me informed of all possibilities throughout the day in court. I may be biased as I won the case but this was very much down to the knowledge of law and the application of the law that Gareth brought to my case and it was most definitely money well spent. Very highly recommended!"
