Chambers provides an out of hours service. If you call Chambers main number you will be diverted to the clerk on call who will be able to deal with your enquiry.
Chambers are very sad to announce that John Aspinall QC died on Saturday 29th October. He had been receiving wonderful care for some time and passed away peacefully with his loving wife by his side.
Called to the Bar in 1971 he was appointed Silk in 1995. His practice was second to none and Chambers were delighted when he agreed to join us in 2014.
He had a love of Motor Sport, the Le Mans 24 hour race having been a permanent fixture date in his diary for many years which also fitted with his love of France. His interest in the sport led him to becoming Chairman of the Judicial Committee and a member of the sport’s governing body.
He would walk into a robing room even at a court centre he had not been to for many years and everyone would know him within minutes, he was on first name terms with Chambers’ cleaners and even the cleaners in the other chambers in our building, a sign of his true humanity.
Mr Aspinall’s humour and incredible ability will be sorely missed by members of Chambers and its staff. He was a true gentleman, a brilliant talent and was passionate about our profession until the end.
Our thoughts are with his wife Frances and family and friends.
The Funeral will be held on Friday 11th November at 4pm at Poole Crematorium.
