Michael is a London trained and qualified Legal Costs Draftsman who successfully completed the then Association of Legal Costs Draftsmen's course during his fifteen years working experience in the UK. The legal costs then practiced in the U.K. were greatly similar to those now enacted in Ireland.

Michael is also a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Costs Accountants (Ireland) with more than twenty years working experience in Ireland where he has represented clients before the Taxing Master and County Registrars throughout the jurisdiction.

Michael worked for a number of years in litigation costs for some of the largest commercial practices in London including Dentons solicitors before setting up a successful litigation costs drafting business in West Sussex where he dealt with the full spectrum of legal costs matters. 

Michael was then invited to return to Ireland and worked for a number of years with the largest provincial practice in the country before starting his own firm with his late wife.
