- Miscellaneous Information
Michael started his career with Thompsons Solicitors in July 2019 in our Contact Centre. In his role there he assisted with a wide variety of cases at the earliest stage including road traffic accidents, employment issues and cases of historical abuse. It was in this role that Michael was able to work with survivors of abuse and focused on providing a client centred service.
In 2020, Michael joined the Survivors Team first as a paralegal before commencing his traineeship in February 2021. Michael has since worked exclusively within the Survivors Team dealing with cases of both historical child abuse and present domestic abuse. He is trauma aware and trained through Wellbeing Scotland.
Michael’s traineeship is specialising in civil litigation and applications to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority to secure compensation for survivors of abuse. He continues to learn and keep up to date with relevant issues in this evolving area of law to best support all clients.
As part of his role in the team, Michael campaigns with Take Justice and Wellbeing Scotland to support survivors and to promote awareness of the issue in society.
