Michael joined JMW in November 2017 as a newly qualified Solicitor in the Real Estate Commercial Department.

Michael has had a wide range of experience with Property matters, further to finishing the Legal Practice Course he entered the legal profession acting as a re-mortgage fee earner working for Borrowers on behalf of high profile lenders such as Santander and Nationwide. He then went on to become a Conveyancing Fee Earner running caseloads acting for Purchasers on behalf of well-known New-Build Developers such as Redrow and Barratt Homes.

Michael took a gap year between graduating from University and starting the LPC and spent his time doing volunteer work for the Citizens Advice Bureau.
