Jonathan Auburn Barrister of 11 King's Bench Walk Review

Just seems interested in getting money from people. Doesn't take the trouble to engage with clients.

Wrote to him a long email with a general, speculative enquiry. Jonathan Auburn replied within literally 3 minutes of my sending with the following: "Yes I would be happy to assist. My clerks can advise you of my fees. I have copied them in."

I didn't say I would definitely want the work, but Jonathan Auburn seemed to care only about getting paid! No interest in taking the time to find out what I wanted or if he could actually help me. That was the only contact I ever had with Jonathan Auburn directly. Through his "clerk", Jonathan Auburn asked me to send him the "papers" (what does that even mean?). I sent him something through and, through his clerk, he said that "upon consideration doesn’t feel that he would be able to assist".

I had shared with Jonathan Auburn something really personal and he didn't even feel the need or the courtesy to get in touch with me directly or to give me a real explanation. I asked what that meant and, through his clerk, finally he told me that he had "a professional conflict". I had the impression he was only interested in getting work and my money and had little or no consideration for my interests. If these are Jonathan Auburn's communication and client care skills at the start, I can’t imagine how bad interpersonal skills are after instructing him.
