Nick Freeman had intended to pursue a career in corporate law. However, after being entered for and winning an advocacy competition, he took a job as a prosecutor for Greater Manchester Police in 1981. It was at that stage that he realised the huge benefit of knowing the law intricately to secure success in the courtroom - the precursor to his Mr Loophole technique. In 1983, he moved to a large firm of criminal lawyers in Manchester and was made a partner within six months. Although his work involved representing those facing serious criminal charges such as murder, fraud and rape, he established an unparalleled reputation for winning road traffic cases. At the age of 42 he left to go it alone and established his own law practice, Freeman and Co. His cases involving clients such as Katie Price, David Beckham and Colin Montgomerie are widely reported across the media. And he frequently appears on radio and television to offer comment on topical matters of the law. He makes regular contributions to the Sunday Times motoring pages and writes a monthly opinion column in the Manchester Evening News. Follow Nick on Twitter @TheMrLoophole.
