Michael would say that 1966 was a significant year in his life for two reasons, the one being his marriage to wife Jan and the other, which those with good memories will recall, being the year England won the World Cup!
Over 50 years of marriage has produced four grown up children, Simon, Dominic, Kate and Sophie and, to date, eight grandchildren and another one on the way.
After qualifying as a solicitor in 1980, Michael founded Brooks & Partners in 1986 in Frimley, Surrey. Michael still remains extremely active in the firm and manages a 30-strong team of lawyers and support staff.
When not running Brooks & Partners Michael likes to keep busy in a variety of ways. The grandchildren help to keep him busy but, in addition, he enjoys travelling, having a particular fondness for the beaches and food to be found in South West Florida. He is also an enthusiastic tennis player and golfer (despite being very poor at the latter). He is an avid follower of the Liverpool football team and cannot wait to visit the ‘Boot Room’ at Anfield!
And Michael is delighted to have reached a significant business milestone - Brooks & Partners are celebrating 30 years in business this year.
