"Michael is amongst the most capable barristers, in any field, that I work with. He is user-friendly, extremely knowledgeable and pro-active. If he is instructed you know that he will be perfectly prepared and will arrive with skeleton arguments, case summaries and any homework... He is much respected by lay clients too and his easy-going but thorough style is appreciated by the judges he appears before... his accessibility by phone and email makes it so easy to work with him. A thoroughly excellent barrister".
