Michael’s primary specialisation is in criminal defence, but he is fully versed in all aspects of case co-ordination for criminal, property, employment, and intellectual property law matters.
He has played an important role in high-profile criminal cases – such as the Kodjo Yenga and Michael Dosunmu murder trials – and this experience helps him to identify and tackle complicated case issues at an early stage.
His energetic, thorough and dedicated approach to all cases large and small is valued by clients who feel secure in the knowledge that no stone will be left unturned in the conduct of their case. His experience and tenacious attitude has enabled him to cultivate links with a wide reaching network of lawyers, enabling him to select individual experts to best meet each client’s individual legal and personal requirements.
Michael’s personal attention to all clients, privately paying and publicly funded alike, coupled with his straight-talking style ensures that clients fully understand the significance and detail of every development in their case. He remains fully engaged in all cases until their conclusion, so clients have the peace of mind of consistent representation.
He recognises the importance of clients feeling completely comfortable and understood by their legal representation and his experience of sensitive cases means that he is particularly adept at dealing with vulnerable clients, including those suffering with substance addiction, young people and the mentally ill.
