Terms of Use

Direct Access Barrister | Criminal & Motoring Law

Welcome to, a website published by Stoke Newington Chambers.

These are the terms and conditions that govern your use of this site.

You will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by these terms and conditions when you use, access or browse the site, register your details with us, submit a fixed quote enquiry, email or letter or subscribe for email or online services.

This site is made available for information purposes only. While many of the blog posts on this site are aimed at providing information to self-represented litigants and the public, this site does not contain legal advice.

While you may think something written on one of the blog-posts may be “just like” your case, chances are it’s not. Cases turn on their individual facts. If you’re in trouble – or just need a hand – it is worth getting legal advice from a trustworthy source who is trained to consider the law in light of the specific facts of your case.

It is unlikely in the extreme that you will be able to pull the proverbial rabbit out of the hat merely by reading a blog / website.

Even this one.

There’s no guarantee that information on the site is accurate, complete or up to date. Users of this site who rely on any information provided on it do so at their own risk. Availability of information is subject to change without notice.

Nothing on this site should be construed as legal advice or perceived as creating a barrister-client relationship.

Blog comments are always welcome. Publication of a comment is not an endorsement of that comment. Discussion and debate is encouraged, and in so doing the right to delete ad hominem attacks, threats and spam is reserved.

Links to external sites are for information purposes only. No responsibility can be accepted for the content of external sites.

Because the publisher and individual authors do not give legal advice on this site and because no site is 100% secure, you must not upload or send confidential information to us via email or in blog comments.

If you are interested in instructing barrister Kristin Heimark, you may make general enquiries about the suitability of your case under the Direct Public Access scheme and her availability via the “Schedule a call” button on this site.

You must not email or otherwise send case-files, records, contracts, tenancy agreements, police statements, correspondence or any other case-related mail/packages or information without first obtaining written permission from Miss Heimark.

No unannounced “drop-in” appointments are available at chambers – and all non-client contact must come via the “Schedule a call” facility.

For the avoidance of doubt, you are not a client unless and until there is a written agreement for services that has been signed by us both and the agreed fee has been paid.

Liability cannot be accepted for any loss, damage or inconvenience arising as a consequence of any use of or the inability to use any information on this site.

This site uses cookies. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies using your web browser. Cookies can be removed or declined by changing your web browser settings. For more information you may visit

This site and the content contained herein is protected by copyright and other intellectual property rights. You may not commercialise, frame or otherwise copy material from this website without Miss Heimark’s prior written permission. All rights reserved.

Stoke Newington Chambers and its logos are registered trademarks.

These terms and conditions will be construed in accordance with English law and the English courts shall have jurisdiction in any legal proceedings (without regard to conflict of laws principles). Any proceedings which may arise out of or in connection with this site shall be brought solely in a court in London, England.
