Private Service

Put simply, we realise that going to Court with an accusation against you by the State will be one of the most significant events in your life, so you need to get it right. When you instruct Nelson Guest & Partners, you will have confidence in knowing that you are instructing astute lawyers who are specialists in their field.

We strongly believe in taking a tenacious and proactive approach to our work when fighting for our clients. Funding your representation privately will ensure you receive exceptional first-class service.

We agree a fee with you before working on your case. We do not work on an ‘hourly rate’ basis or give you unreliable ‘estimates’, as we understand that you desire certainty from the outset and want to avoid any hidden charges.

The benefits of funding your defence privately include the following:

  • Priority choice from a range of outstanding advocates to suit your needs and objectives;
  • Consistency of representation, as your advocate will be the same person at every court hearing
  • Receive a dedicated case manager to handle your case internally, update you frequently and be your first point of call throughout the course of your case
  • Personal email service to ensure that you can contact your case manager 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Assiduous preparation of your case to ensure the best result possible​
