Michael describes his down to earth approach.

“I have been privileged to spend over 20 years working for people who have suffered all manner of complex injuries through no fault of their own. I love mt job. Every case brings a new challenge and new rewards, and while medical negligence cases can often be complex, I try to make the process as clear and straightforward as I can for each of my clients. I want to take away all the legal speak and the medical jargon to leave my clients in no doubt as to exactly where they are. Once that’s understood I can advise them on the best next steps and how they can take them.”

“I was very nervous before the trial. Michael explained everything calmly and clearly and as a result he made me feel more confident about the outcome and he certainly didn’t let me down. We won and I got 100% of the money the Defendant owed me”.


“The judge singled out their witness for specific criticism as a result of the flaws in his evidence; flaws which I’m sure would not have come out but for Mike’s excellent and detailed cross examination”.


“I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael to anyone”.


“The documents were in a bit of a state when I gave them to Michael but the work was delivered immaculately, on time, and for a fixed fee. Top job”.
