Neil Usher

Call To The Bar: 1993

‘Fearsome in his pursuit of his client’s best interests.’ – The Legal 500, 2018


Neil was called to the Bar in 1993, having spent 7 years working as a senior advisor to one of the main political parties in London. Having been educated and raised in Bury, he returned to the North West in 1993.

He has a busy criminal practice, divided fairly evenly between defending and prosecuting.  He is a Category 4 Prosecutor.

As his practice has grown, instructing solicitors have commended his organisational skills, sensitivity with vulnerable witnesses and his effective manner with juries.  He has developed a reputation for being particularly understanding with lay clients.

Neil now concentrates on more serious and complex criminal cases.
