Meet the Criminal Department
Michael Jeary – Senior Partner/Head of Criminal Department
I founded Jeary & Lewis Solicitors in 1986, and have specialised in Criminal Litigation since 1970. I am a Duty Solicitor, and 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 Minnie and Minx and being a Granddad.
Terry McCarthy – Solicitor
I have been at Jeary & Lewis Solicitors since 2010. I have many years experience, having qualified as a Solicitor in 1977. I represent clients in Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and neighbouring Counties both at the Police Station and at the Magistrates Courts.
Clare Gooding – Solicitor
Laura Vickers – Paralegal
I joined Jeary & Lewis Solicitors in June 2007, following completion of a Legal Secretaries Diploma.
I now hold a Specialist Paralegal Qualification in Criminal Litigation, and also hope to become an Accredited Legal Representative in due course.
Outside of work, my time is mainly spent running around after my children and catching up with friends when time allows!
