Our Services

Demstone Chambers is led by Barristers, supported by a team of chambers assistants.

We are specialist family lawyers. Our family legal services include making applications to the Family Court in child related matters, e.g. Child Arrangements Orders family court hearings, and advising on family financial matters (financial remedies matters) arising on divorce.

Immigration legal services include making Visa Applications, drafting documents such as grounds for Immigration AppealsAdministrative Review, or Judicial Review, and appearing in the Immigration Tribunal to challenge decisions of the Home Office. We understand the way the Home Office works because we have provided legal services in immigration law for many years. Our practitioners are experts in this area of law. They are regularly invited to give talks and lectures to members of the public and other lawyers to share their expertise in immigration law.

Employment services include drafting Employment Tribunal claims for Unfair DismissalDiscrimination, or whistleblowing related issues, and attending the Employment Tribunal to represent clients. We can also provide advice to employers on HR and compliance related issues.

We are direct access barristers. This means that members of the public can approach and instruct us directly without needing to go through a solicitor.

Our fees naturally depend on the type of work being undertaken. Further information about our fees can be found here.
