Direct access barristers do not conduct litigation, meaning you need to gather evidence and other documents yourself, and file documents at court and sign letters. Direct access barristers can advise you on these steps however, and draft documents for you to sign and lodge with the court.
The ‘direct access’ scheme doesn’t allow barrister to:
* issue court documents;
* contact witnesses or collect and investigate evidence;
* instruct an expert witness;
* handle your money;
* correspond with the other party to a dispute.
However, paralegals at PX Barristers can carry out any or all of these services on your behalf, and we will work closely with your appointed barrister to ensure every aspect of your case is delivered to perfection and on time.
