Current Vacancies

Mike Garratt.


I joined Simpson Jones Solicitors when it opened its doors in 2010. During this time I have worked with all the staff and partners here to provide excellent legal advice in property transactions for all our clients. I am now a part time Consultant with Simpson Jones.


I am a Conveyancer of over 40 years standing and during this time have dedicated myself to ensuring that my clients have the best legal advice available and to make sure the job was completed to everyone’s satisfaction. I have provided residential property advice including residential sales, purchases and remortgages for individuals who were looking for a new home to clients who were looking to increase their property portfolio with buy to let properties.


My experience over the last 40 years has come from dealing with all types of residential property transactions from advising first time buyers to “old hands” in the residential property market. I have had a great relationship with local agents, surveyors and brokers and we have all worked together to get the job completed to the client’s satisfaction. I pride myself in going that extra mile for the clients and cutting through the legal jargon to give you down to earth, understandable advice.


I enjoy an evening out with good friends and am a lifelong Derby County Supporter (or should that be sufferer!!).
