Mike is an experienced and knowledgeable Criminal Advocate and Duty Solicitor who represents clients at Police Stations, Magistrates Courts, and Crown Courts. He is highly regarded for his professional attitude at all times. He defends clients vigorously, whilst being approachable and plain-speaking in his dealings with individuals. As such he is often instructed in difficult cases representing young and vulnerable clients. Mike is equally at home with complicated legal points as with cases depending entirely on factual circumstances.

Having worked closely with the Legal Aid Agency for many years, Mike supervises all other members of staff in the department in running and maintaining files to the required standards.
