Training courses and personalised advice to help you represent yourself in court and do yourself justice

Representing yourself in court is not as difficult as it may seem. People nowadays look to YouTube for ‘how-to’ videos which explain how to achieve a certain outcome – from cake making and plumbing to fixing the brakes on a car or making IKEA furniture. Going to court is no different. Once you have an idea of what you’re doing, the rest falls into place.

I’m Simon Walland and I’m dedicated to showing you how to help yourself if you can’t afford to shell out thousand of pounds to hire a solicitor to represent you in court. With my free lectures and intensive online courses you’ll learn how to deal with each element of a court hearing – so you can attend court prepared, ready, and, above all, confident about moving your case forward.

You can also take advantage of my personalised Family Law services where I’ll help you prepare for an upcoming hearing in which you’re representing yourself in court. If you’d like someone experienced and knowledgeable in Family Law to go with you to court, I can be on hand to assist you or I can suggest someone for you to contact (charges apply).

You CAN represent yourself with confidence and walk out of that courtroom knowing you did your best to get the outcome you want.

Knowledgeable, friendly, experienced and reliable

And I know exactly what you’re going through

I know what you are going through. Back in 2001, I was offered one hour a month to see my children because, according to my ex-wife, I was no longer their father. After many court hearings, I secured an arrangement which meant that I was a solid and stable part of their lives. The process sparked an interest in family Law and I studied a law Degree which was followed by training as a Barrister and I was Called to the Bar in 2010.


Since 2002 I’ve been helping people represent themselves in court with confidence by imparting my knowledge and experience through online courses and lectures, and personalised services.

If you’re going through a divorce or separation and there are children involved, it can be hard to agree on how much contact you’ll both have with them, particularly if there’s a high level of conflict between you and your ex-spouse.
