“I would highly recommend Cumbria Law to anybody in need of legal services”


Cumbria Law was established by Tristan McGee in 2003 to provide advisory and advocacy services in Employment Law, Personal Injury, Contract Law and Planning.

Cumbria Law provides a range of services from opinions, pleadings and submissions to specialist advices, representation and advocacy. Serving clients throughout Cumbria we are approachable, responsive and reliable and we take a commercial view in relation to fees.

Chambers accepts work under the Direct Public Access Scheme and also welcomes instructions from solicitors.

Please visit our specialist sections for more information.


We are very happy to have an initial consultation to discuss your legal matter and give you a clear idea of our fee structure.

If you are seeking Direct Public Access we will provide a view as to whether or not this is the best route for you. Under this scheme there are some things Barristers are not permitted to do for you such as handling money for you. This will be explained to you at the consultation.

Chambers offers quiet private facilities set in rural surroundings. We are happy to travel to clients and video conferencing is available.

Tristan was patient, understanding and very helpful. He guided me through a difficult and stressful employment issue. I would not have been able to progress my case without his commitment, attention to detail, and guidance. I would highly recommend him to anybody in need of legal services.

Stewart Wilkinson     

Tristan advised us on landlord and tenant and planning issues in relation to the development potential of a retail site bringing his legal acumen and lay expertise to bear on the issues and opportunities. He went out of his way to travel to us and to the site. He gave us pragmatic and insightful advice which guided us in our decision on the investment opportunity. We would not hesitate to use Tristan again.

Corden Group     

We have instructed Tristan on many personal injury matters over a 13 year period during which time he has provided a wide range of written work and advocacy and has represented our clients. He is firm yet empathetic and is always resolute to obtain the best result for the client.

Tristan explained things in layman's terms and was understanding to our concerns and demands. I will be recommending him to all my friends who need advice. Thank you again for your help and assistance.
