I have instructed Julian Benson for many years.  He is a highly skilled advocate and  has immense energy and tactical acumen.  Clients love his approachability, his ‘hands on’ attitude and his obvious passion for achieving excellent results.  Richard Lowes, Solicitor, Partner, BLB Solicitors


 Julian Benson is one of only a few specialist personal injury barristers that you can really talk to about a case and who gets to the heart of the matter quickly.  He shows infectious enthusiasm as well as great skill when dealing with tricky liability issues and has a knack of highlighting Defence weaknesses which has often led to a concession of liability in previously fiercely disputed cases.  Kay McCluskey, Solicitor, Partner, Head of Claimant Personal Injury at Metcalfes Solicitors. Past President of the Bristol Medico-Legal Society


Julian Benson is a specialist PI Barrister and recognised expert in complex and catastrophic injury claims. Expertise, experience and attention to detail are the pre-requisites expected of specialist counsel. Julian possesses the additional and almost unique ability to win the total trust of my clients, creating team spirit, confidence and success both pre-trial and at Court. William Weller, Solicitor and Partner, Thatcher and Hallam Solicitors


Julian’s attention to detail, forensic assessment of risk, and his sheer presence in Court, combine to make him a formidable advocate, in the widest sense of that word, of the Client’s case.  Robert Ashton, Solicitor, Consultant, Middleton Dummer Solicitors


Julian listens to, has empathy for and an understanding of my clients: people from all walks of life who have suffered, often devastating, injuries. He gives sensible advice in an easily understood, characteristically warm and good-humoured manner. Julian’s eye for detail is reflected in both his advocacy and paperwork, which are of the highest quality; his preparation is thorough and meticulous, inspiring confidence and leaving clients in no doubt that they are in safe hands.  Mark Tawn, Solicitor, Partner, BLB Solicitors


What sets Julian Benson apart is the value he adds in terms of tactical, procedural and evidential advice as well, of course, as his negotiation and advocacy skills.  John Baden-Daintree, Solicitor, Head of Legal Services, Quality Solicitors


Julian’s command of the subject is second to none. He has an unmatched ability to instil confidence in clients and to put them entirely at ease from the off.  Stuart Gist, Solicitor, Senior Associate, Clarke Willmott
