Profile

Joe Barr is a highly experienced criminal defence counsel who is regularly instructed in all kinds of High Court and Sheriff and Jury cases. He is no stranger to the Appeal Court and has appeared twice before the Privy Council. Prior to being called to the bar in 1999 he was a sole practitioner in a criminal law firm and an experienced Procurator Fiscal Depute before that. Joe believes that most cases are won and lost before any evidence is led and that excellent pre-trial preparation is the key to successful advocacy. Apart from his legal expertise, Joe brings a wealth of other life skills, interests and experiences to his practice which he believes allows him to develop excellent professional relationships and rapport with professional colleagues, clients, and decision makers alike.
