Get in touch with Michael
Known as one of South Australia’s leading Medical Negligence lawyers, Michael King has worked hard to develop a first-rate knowledge of the complex relationship between Medicine and the Law.
In seeking remedies for mistakes that have changed lives for the worse, Michael calls upon his experience and judgement to provide sound advice with promptness and precision.
Michael has brought malpractice suits against doctors and hospitals, and assisted families who have lost their main breadwinner due to medical errors.
He holds a strong understanding of the need for the legal profession to be responsive to the community’s needs – a belief he re-enforces through voluntary work on committees examining the ethics of medical research programs.
Michael’s legal practice extends to Motor Vehicle Accident claims and Public Liability cases resulting from trips and falls caused by the irresponsible actions of others.
Michael also possesses a recognised ability to develop positive outcomes in controversial matters requiring exceptional sensitivity. As such, he is called upon for specialised consultations relating to abuse within various institutions.
With a desire to provide the highest levels of advocacy and personal attention to his clients, Michael strives for solutions that are both principled and substantive.
He is always ready to take the time to help people suffering in the most complex of dilemmas to formulate their goals, and then achieve them.
