John Collins

John Collins was nominated by a member of chambers with his application supported by fellow barristers and the judiciary.

John’s 60 years at the bar have not stunted his indefatigable work ethic and commitment to pro bono work. In fact, over the last 5 years, John has worked on 11 cases for the Unit.

John’s total dedication to achieving justice for his clients has led him to appear on behalf of one client for 6 years.  As the matter has made its way through the courts, John has supported his client and made sure that she never had to face proceedings without representation.

John’s encouragement of younger members of chambers, and indeed the young bar as a whole, to accept pro bono work when they have time is a testament to his pragmatic and generous ethos.
