Michael Wolkind KC is widely regarded as one of the UK’s top-rated criminal appeals barristers. Recognised for his penetrating legal mind and ability to identify subtle and not so subtle appeal grounds and then successfully argue them, he has created an outstanding track record of appeals success.
The ability to listen with empathy, and then act decisively leveraging the most promising way forward, is what marks Michael out as one of Britain’s leading criminal appeals advocates.
Throughout his career, Michael has taken on appeal cases that have looked most unpromising, and has discovered new issues which have led to successes at the Court of Appeal.
Indeed, a recent Lord Chief Justice described Michael as:
“a very dangerous advocate who makes even bad points sound perfectly reasonable“.
It is safe to say that Michael repeatedly obtains more outstanding Google 5 Star Reviews than any other criminal barrister, which are given to him not just for his legendary legal mind and powerful courtroom skills, but also for his compassionate and caring nature - which extends both to appellants and their loved ones.
