About Us

We are a dedicated Legal Aid service for Legal Aid providers offering advice and assistance with everything from the submission of a Legal Aid contract tender to disputes and disagreements arising from Legal Aid audit activity.

Dedicated to the Legal Aid Service since 1985

I qualified as a solicitor in 1983 and started work at the then Law Society in 1985.  Since then, there have been transfers of the service to the Legal Aid Board, the Legal Services Commission and finally the Legal Aid Agency.  I retired from the Legal Aid Agency in 2022 to set up my own consultancy, MG Legal Solutions.

I live in Leeds, am married to Julie, and am father to two sons, both at university studying maths and engineering.

I’m a keen walker and a member of two walking groups, one on either side of the Pennines. I love the arts and enjoy attending the ballet, opera and all forms of music.

My guilty pleasure is rescuing cats but Julie will only let me have one at a time!
