SC Direct Access Client
Hi Michael, Thank you so much for all of your help and support. I immediately felt at ease when we met at court. What a relief that not only did you get the CCJ set aside and the debt written off but you managed to get the other side to pay me costs! What an amazing result! I would recommend you in a heartbeat. Again I cannot thank you enough.
Ms S A Lay Client
Michael Shaw dealt with our case in the most professional manner. He was caring and courteous towards the Defendant who was a victim of domestic violence whilst displaying the utmost professionalism and giving her the advice and confidence to give evidence in the best way possible. His cross-examination technique, expertise and his confidence is what won the case in the end. Highly recommended! Thanks again Michael. Great result.
Sobia Zahoor Themis Lawyers
I instructed Mike on a complicated public liability matter. I was impressed by his down to earth nature and the effortless way he was able put my client at her ease in conference. At trial his cross examination of the Defendant’s main expert witness was, by all accounts exceptional, and won the day for our case. The judge singled out their witness for specific criticism as a result of the flaws in his evidence; flaws which I’m sure would not have come out but for Mike’s advocacy skills I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other instructing solicitors and I will be instructing him regularly in the future.

I write to thank you [Michael Shaw] for the quick and efficient way that you have handled my personal injury case. I had instructed another firm previously and I was told by many of my friends that this case would not be resolved because it had been too long since the accident but you have completely turned that on it's head. Thank you.
