Michael Sterling


Michael joined Arnison Heelis in 2007 having re-located from Oxfordshire. Michael is an experienced Family Solicitor who has worked exclusively in Family Law for more than 35 years. Michael qualified as a solicitor in 1975 and has worked with some of London’s top barristers and has handled thousands of cases over the course of his career, ranging from the simple to the most complex.

Michael offers expert as well as practical, sympathetic advice and support to assist with divorce proceedings, financial settlements and children matters, backed up with years of experience. He also advises co-habitees concerning their rights and obligations when things go wrong and for those who wish to protect their assets before things go wrong Michael can help in the preparation of co-habitation and prenuptial agreements.

An early member of the Law Society Family Law Panel and also a member of Resolution (formerly known as the Solicitors Family Law Association). Also trained as a mediator.

Away from work Michael and his wife can be found plodding the Lakeland Fells or, when time permits, visiting far flung places as far away from civilisation as possible!
