Behind The Scenes: How We Represent & Defend you at court

What does a Solicitor do?

In Northern Ireland, the role of a solicitor is to take instructions from clients, including individuals, groups, public sector organisations, or private companies, and advise them on necessary courses of legal action.

As a solicitor, you are more than likely the first point of contact for clients should they need legal advice. This advice can range from wills entitlement to divorces, to accidents within the workplace and sales of property and land registration.

Can we represent and defend you in court?

Solicitors represent clients in disputes and represent them in court if necessary. However, in complex situations, we as solicitors at McPartland & Sons, will often hire barristers or specialist advocates to appear in court on behalf of our clients. We will attend the hearing along with the barrister and in cases at the High Court in Northern Ireland, it is usual for barristers to represent cases in the court instructed by the solicitor.

Can I represent myself in court?

Going to court is a serious and formal process. If you are considering it, find out about the process so that you are well informed. If you do not have a legal representative, you will have to manage the process by yourself. This will include

  • Speaking in court yourself
  • Preparing and managing your case
  • Communicating with other legal representatives
  • Making sure you understand that laws in Northern Ireland can differ from those in Scotland, England, and Wales.
