Michael Wolkind - Barrister and QC

Client Testimonials and Reviews

It is hard to know where to start.  Michael Wolkind recently represented my husband in an extremely difficult case against the ‘system’! Michael is passionate about his clients and the cases brought to him, he went above and beyond in our case; I am just sorry we hadn’t instructed him sooner. We will be instructing Michael again for a further matter relating to our case in the new year! Michael is amazing!I cannot thank him enough for his hard work and commitment towards us!  This review does not give Michael the recognition he deserves.

Well what can I say about Mr Wolkind that hasn’t been said many times before, he really is simply brilliant, witty, clever and charismatic, but also kind and caring too. Even years after he had agreed to help me in the worst period of my life, a very public prosecution (acquitted of all charges) he is still in contact, listening and advising when needed, also speaking to the press on my behalf when it’s all been too much.
I can’t thank Michael enough for his help and support through these very difficult times 🙂

Mr Wolkind and his PA Catherine Daley are more tha just representatives in court they are friends and i can honestly say with all my heart no one in this world would battle your side the way they do. They are the best at what they do and I’m living proof of that they’ve helped me and my family through the hardest most painful battle of our lives and in the end we all was successful. Michael and Catherine if I could give you years of my life the way you gave them to me I would you both mean the world to me and my family.

“A family member found himself in a serious situation. I had the chance to observe Michael Wolkind “in action” throughout a long trial of 2 months. He was always in control and very proficient. His preparation in the case was well thought out and structured and his performance when it came to cross-examination was articulate and professional. What Michael achieved from that would prove vital in the acquittal of the family member on all counts. Michael’s speeches were so persuasive as well. To put it simply, Michael is an amazing QC to have on your side defending you in any type of case. His style, approach and execution is second to none. The whole family had suffered for 13 months waiting. Allegations of such nature are awful. Our family member is now a free man because of Michael Wolkind QC”

“I attended every day of my brother’s 2 months trial. He was charged with  5 counts of rape. I had the chance to observe Michael Wolkind “in action” throughout this long period. He was always in control and very proficient. His preparation in the case was well thought out and structured and his performance when it came to cross-examination was articulate and professional. What Michael achieved from that would prove vital in the acquittal of my brother on all counts. Michael’s speeches were so persuasive as well. 

To put it simply, Michael is an amazing QC to have on your side defending you in any type of case. His style, approach and execution is second to none. The whole family had suffered for one year waiting . Allegations  of such nature are awful. My brother is now a free man because of Michael Wolkind QC”

“From the moment I first met you at Bedford Row Chambers your charisma, substance and quality of mind were very apparent. I decided you were the defence advocate I was looking for. For such a busy man, the fact that you were always accessible was very important to me.”
