Michael J Reed Ltd, Solicitors Carmarthenshire,

South West Wales

Established in 1977.

Incorporated into Michael J. Reed Ltd. on the 2nd of December 2004.

Registered in Cardiff. Company No.: 5293551.

Michael J Reed Ltd offers a comprehensive service in the area of Criminal Law.

It is with great regret that the firm have decided not to continue with legal aid work after 1st April 2017. This decision has been made primarily because of the the problems with criminal legal aid over the last few years and in particular the fiasco when the Legal Aid Agency brought in the two tier legal aid contracts towards the end of 2015, which aimed at eliminating the smaller criminal legal aid firms. Mikes’ son Robyn had joined the firm in 2010, with a view to taking over the firm, which has been specialising in criminal legal aid work since 1979. However, at the end of 2015 when the two tier contract was imposed by the Legal Aid Agency, Robyn decided that he couldn’t make a reasonable living on criminal legal aid and so he left the firm and joined a firm in Leeds doing private work. However the firm will, of course, be finishing existing legal aid cases and Mike Reed will be continuing to do private work.
