You deserve a champion - someone to stand up and fight for you.

When things go wrong, you need someone you can trust by your side. Someone who knows what it’s like to overcome challenges. Who wants to protect you and your interests first. Who listens without judgement. A specialist who understands the complexities of the legal system and the people in it. Someone with real experience and results. We will be there to provide expertise, guidance and support. But more than that, we believe in justice and fairness and will go above and beyond to fight for you.

Our Story

For Nick Dore and the team, being a legal practitioner isn’t just a job. It’s a calling. Our team live and breathe the law and our clients’ cases. When we say we care, they’re not just words. The outcomes of our cases have life-changing consequences for our clients. We care about the outcomes and the process leading up to those outcomes. But more importantly, we care about our clients. Because people are at the heart of everything we do. We’re here to look out for people who are dealing with difficult situations. People who don’t have a voice, but deserve to be heard. People who need help navigating our complex legal system. We put everything into looking out for our clients. Going above and beyond is the only way we know how to operate.

I’ve prosecuted against Nick Dore and I’m a fan of his work. If I ever needed a Defence solicitor in my corner, I’d choose him... what can I say, the man is brilliant.

Thank you so much for your amazing work. You have made a compelling argument for me and I believe my application was successful only because of your excellent work.
