Ashley is the most experienced specialised divorce and financial remedy senior junior barrister in the North West. Having been the first on Circuit to specialise exclusively in divorce and financial remedy cases nearly two decades ago, he has for many years been recognised nationally as a leading barrister in such work. He also has many published articles in leading law journals to his name and is the co-author of a standard legal textbook, Cohabitation, Law, Practice and Precedents; now in its 6th Edition.
Ashley, being aware of the significant changes to legal services occurring and planned, is determined to be in the vanguard of innovation in the way clients obtain advice and representation from a barrister in this specialised area of family law and provides a bespoke service to solicitors and their clients.

Ashley is particularly aware, after many years of practice at the Bar, that a client is realistically only interested in receiving the best representation available at a reasonable cost. The model of the traditional city centre barrister’s chambers with high overheads is now outdated and unduly burdensome in costs adding significantly to the barrister’s fee to the client. In an internet age, the modern barrister’s practice has the capacity to be far more flexible and economical. The North West has long required a specialised family law Chambers where solicitors and clients can access the highest calibre of barrister skilled in family work – Ashley Murray Chambers is intended to be a foundation for such a future facility.
Ashley offers solicitors and clients a unique opportunity to access his vast specialised experience at both fixed and affordable negotiated costs. In particular, he has always advocated the benefits of engaging the barrister’s input at an early stage of divorce and financial remedy cases and now provides pre Form E conferences (up to 2 hours and including a conference summary note) at a fee of £700 plus vat*.

He also welcomes proposals for and discussions concerning fixed fee packages covering a number of hearings within divorce and financial remedy proceedings, if required.

In all cases his ethos to his fees is that ‘everything is negotiable’.
