Meet the Criminal Department

MJMichael Jeary: Senior Partner

Head of Criminal Deparment

I founded the Firm in 1986, and have specialised in Criminal Litigation since 1970.  I hold a Higher Rights Certificate to represent clients in the Crown Court.

I have always had a strong ambition to represent members of the public who find themselves in conflict with authority.

When I am not busy helping my clients, I enjoy being a computer geek on my Apple Mac, walking my springer spaniels Moc and Minnie the Minx and being a granddad.

MWMichael Wills: Solicitor

(partner/member)

I have been in general practice for more years than I care to remember.

In April 2007 I joined Jeary & Lewis as a Consultant, concentrating on Criminal Law.  I work on cases in  the Magistrates and Crown Courts.

In my spare time I enjoy music and travelling.

DGDavid Gostling: Solicitor

(partner/member)

I qualified as a Solicitor in 1972 and have worked in Swindon since 1981. I have broad experience in all aspects of Criminal Law and have been a Duty Solicitor for over 25 years.

I also regularly sit as a Deputy District Judge in the Magistrates Courts around the country.

I am sympathetic and supportive, but have a realistic approach to those who find themselves in the complicated and often bewildering process of Criminal Law.

I live in Oxfordshire and am happy to attend Police Station and Magistrates Courts in Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire.

In my sparetime, I enjoy a beer with friends, rugby matches and motor racing.

MPMike Pulsford: Solicitor

(partner/member)

I was admitted as a Solicitor in 1980 whilst working as a Legal Advisor in the Magistrates Court Service

In 1981 I became a Deputy Clerk to the North Wiltshire Magistrates and then went into private practice in 1985. 

I have always specialised in Criminal Law and in 1994 was one of only 31 Solicitors nationwide to be granted Higher Rights of Audience.  That means I can conduct Crown Court trials and appear in the Court of Appeal.

Since then I have been involved in several high profile cases. I have represented clients charged with prison riot, murder, large scale computer fraud and high value money laundering.

In my spare time I enjoy watching football. I have been a local youth club leader for the past 30 years and am also on the Regional Committee of the Urban Saints National Youth Organisation.

I specialise in Criminal Law and have experience in a broad range of cases.  I am a qualified Duty Solicitor and assist people both at the Police Station and Magistrates Courts.  I am sympathetic, patient and have knowledge of the workings of the complex Criminal System which I seek to aid people through.

In my spare time I enjoy music, fitness and a good catch up with friends
