Firm lays down law on TV

Reading-based firm Rowberry Morris claims it is the first in the UK to hold down a regular TV slot offering advice to viewers.

The Monday evening cable show on Thames Valley TV was born after the firm impressed a member of the station's staff when giving advice about a compensation claim.

“It is a pre-recorded 15 minute question-and-answer slot where members of the firm are asked by an interviewer about subjects ranging from legal aid to what it's like to appear in court,” said senior partner Anthony Rowberry. “We avoid legal jargon and make the subjects as user-friendly as possible.”
