Rob’s freelance business was established in February 2020 to provide legal services to private individuals, and SMEs.  Now in its fifth year, the practice has demonstrated that its formula of providing high quality advice at reasonable cost has proved very popular.


Here’s what our clients have to say about our services:

“Thanks for your good work yesterday with our son.  For him to keep his driving licence meant everything to me and my wife.  His job means the world to him and us.  Massive sigh of relief from both of us yesterday.  Once again well done”

May 2023

“Very clear about my case and explained everything in great detail.  The service was excellent.”

August 2019 

“Robert Kellock [is] a credit to the legal system.”

July 2019

“Good advocacy could be inferred from a case where the client was acquitted despite the evidence against him being that of 2 police officers who both gave evidence. Also, on another, the client was acquitted on a charge of being drunk in charge of a motor vehicle despite being arrested in the car with the engine running.”

Independent Peer Review, February 2017

“Knowledgeable, helpful and reasonably priced.  Recommended by a colleague.”

“Rob is a brilliant professional who is able to explain complex areas of law in a succinct and accessible manner. His ability to provide comfort in difficult situations is testament to his character and I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone.”

Your advice was clear, steadfast, professional, and no nonsense in your focused approach.  Thank you for your diligence and support with a situation we had never faced before in 25 years of business.  A great result!  A huge “thank you, Rob”

I thought you were an outstanding advocate for me and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better, from start to finish of the whole process.

If I ever require any legal advice or assistance, hopefully not by the way, then you will be my first port of call.

You are a credit to your profession and clearly a very decent bloke.

Thank you for your efforts.
