Michael Devlin has been our solicitor for the past 7 years. During that time he has represented us in 3 legal disputes. In each case he was well informed and all his advice was sound and clear. He was always readily available but did not waste time. Michael has a friendly, accessible, easy going style and is always open to alternative suggestions and tactics. He engages you in every step of the legal process and patiently explains legal terms and jargon whenever asked.
However, the real test of a successful solicitor is whether he or she gets results. In our 5 year complex boundary dispute with a neighbour, the judge found 100% in our favour. In the follow on 2 year costs dispute with the same neighbour, Michael was instrumental in us being awarded £91,000 of our total allowable costs of £95,000. The cost judge made particular reference to Michael’s excellent documentation as a key factor in making his judgement.
