Gavin Howe Barrister

“Mr Gavin Howe has shown a distinct lack of manners and legal competence as a Family Law Barrister on multiple occasions that I have witnessed.

Mr Howe could not even get his client’s name or marital status right during Financial Remedy proceedings.

In my opinion, Mr Howe attempted to deliberately mislead the High Court by making a false statement in writing to Mr Justice Cohen of the Family Division of the High Court.

Mr Howe decided it was appropriate to argue with the Court Clerk who was assigned to the Courtroom that Mrs Justice Roberts of the Family Division of the High Court was sitting in. Mr Howe was unhappy that the Court Clerk had instructed a Litigant in Person and their McKenzie Friend to sit on the front bench in the High Court which is normally reserved for Kings Council (KC).

Mr Howe should learn how to use a clothes iron as his unkempt appearance in front of Mrs Justice Roberts at the High Court of England and Wales was in a gown which can only be described as being creased and incredibly scruffy.

Mr Howe’s conduct has shown wanton insolence and contempt to the Court and in particular to the High Court of England and Wales. I am sure this behaviour also breaches the Bar Standards Board (BSB) Handbook 4.7

I would suggest you to think very carefully and perform the necessary due diligence before instructing this Barrister from the 1 Crown Office Row (1COR) chambers in Brighton Sussex”
