Mike qualified as a Solicitor in 1989 and has worked in the area of Lifetime Planning since 1990, where he has been practising in Caerphilly ever since. He joined Glamorgan Law in 2014 when it merged with his previous firm, Charles, Crookes & Jones and then became a Director at JCP Solicitors following the Glamorgan Law merger in April 2017.

In 2019, Mike undertook training to become a Dementia Champion in his aim to make Caerphilly a Dementia Friendly town. A Dementia Champion is someone with excellent knowledge and skills in the care of people with dementia.

In his spare time, Mike is a keen Bridge player, having represented Wales in his younger days. He is currently Vice Chairman of Penarth Bridge Club.

He goes line dancing weekly and is always (unless extremely busy) happy to join the firm’s Quiz Team – which often takes home the winning gong! Mike loves a holiday – especially a cruise which he and his wife will take as often as time and money permit.
