About Us

Specialist road law barristers

Road Law Barristers are a group of barristers who specialise in Road Traffic Law that work with clients with cases in Leeds, York, Northallerton and throughout Yorkshire and the North East.

We are based at KBW Barristers Chambers in Leeds which is a multi-disciplinary set of Chambers with a long established reputation both on circuit and nationally. During 2014, we celebrated our 60 year anniversary.

We are both dedicated and professional, our barristers provide legal advice and advocacy at the highest level. Our commitment to client care means that barristers develop long-term relationships with those instructing them and have built a loyal client base.

We pride ourselves on having members operating at the height of their specialist areas on both a national and international level.

As barristers we are not only experts in the law but also in court room advocacy. This means that we will be able to analyse your case and present your defence in a persuasive manner to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

We practice throughout Yorkshire and the North East in both the Magistrates’ and the Crown Court. So whether you have been accused of speeding in Leeds or arrested on suspicion of drink driving in York we have the expertise support your case.

Because we are barristers as opposed to solicitors, we also have experience of prosecuting cases as well as defending. This added insight allows us to readily see any holes in the prosecution case that can be exploited to your advantage.

Our service standards

We pride ourselves on providing a quality service across all aspects of our work in chambers, from our clerking team to our barristers’ advice and advocacy.

We operate robust client care protocols which underpin our quality service. As a result, our clients are confident in the knowledge that when they instruct us they will always receive the same quality service they have come to expect.

Our friendly, efficient and knowledgeable clerking team develop strong relationships with instructing solicitors. They build up a rapport and knowledge of our clients’ work which enables them to offer well informed advice on the most suitable counsel for a case.

We value your opinion on any aspect of our service.

Our professional governance

All of our barristers are governed by the Bar Standards Board ‘Code of Conduct’. The Code of Conduct provides the requirements for practice as a barrister and the rules and standards of conduct applicable to barristers. For more information visit https://www.barstandardsboard.org.uk

These new terms apply to privately funded work only received after this date. It does not apply to publically funded work, CFA’s or bespoke written agreements entered into prior to this date. A copy of the new terms of service is available in PDF format on our KBW Chambers website.
