This section explains why we are named after St Edmund. Reasons to choose St Edmund Chambers are outlined on the pagesĀ About Chambers, Client Care, and the pages about Cathy McCulloch.

St Edmund was King in East Anglia in the Dark Ages.

Legend has it that having taken up arms to defend his people in 869, he was prepared to die for his principles. After he was defeated by marauding Viking raiders, he refused to renounce his Christian faith, and was executed by archers.

St Edmund was the patron saint of England for almost 500 years until he was replaced by St George in the mid 1300s.

We hope that he would approve of a small team whose professional purpose is to do all they can to achieve justice for those who need it.
