There is always someone available to help, even at short notice and Julia Vaughan who clerks Foregate goes the extra mile to help put my mind and therefore my client's mind at rest. I look forward to continuing to work with Foregate in the future."

Anne & David Hawkins
“I have found Foregate to be extremely professional and have been very happy with the service provided by the company.”
I attended mediation where Gavin Purves of Foregate Chambers (Barrister Clerking) acted on behalf of the potential Claimant. I was truly impressed with his professionalism, knowledge of the law and his composure throughout. He achieved a better than predicted result for our client in very stressful and highly emotional circumstances.

"Foregate Chambers saves the day...again! That’s three times I’ve used you and three times you got the right and just result. You always have the right people for the right job 👍.Alistair Mitchell was A1 - now there’s an Order which I never thought we would get. Can’t thank you and Alistair enough.
"I would just like to thank you for the hard work Mr Simon Collingham has done in representing me at court, after months of anxiety over my charge of failing to produce a specimen for analysis, Mr Collingham was, to say the very least, a true professional and a pleasure to meet even under such stressful circumstances, and his attention to every detail made the difference in having the trial dropped or me getting charged with something I felt strongly I should never have been. Again, I thank you for your efforts and good luck with all your future cases.
My appreciation and gratitude to Counsel, Mr Michael Conlon: his professionalism, patience and ability to deal with such a case that gave him nothing to work with, was absolutely amazing and excellent in every way. Although the CPS displayed inefficiencies and some incompetence, I don't believe the result would have been achieved without Mr Conlon's persistence and great attention to detail. I can't thank him enough!”
KJ at MAJ Law
"At the court hearing, MAJ Law provided an amazing barrister. His professionalism, advice, patience and ability to deal with such a case, was excellent in every way. There is no way I could have argued with the prosecutor and police witness, who seemed to be surprisingly getting support from the court! To them, I was guilty. My barrister's persistence, great attention to detail, and unwillingness to allow any unfairness, is what won the case. I cannot stress how grateful I am and that this was his win.”
I wanted to thank you for your help and support with my case. I have been really impressed with your service, very organized! Counsel, Mr David Daniels, got me the result I needed after a very long day in court (we left at 8pm!) and I just wanted to thank you both.
