David Wilkins


After spending the majority of my career in the Black Country, I moved back to Birmingham to take advantage of the expanding and vibrant opportunities at Green’s. Working within a team of friendly professionals who share my goal of delivering the best result is extremely encouraging.

I previously worked primarily within the criminal law sector, however now I predominantly specialise in public law as well as acting on behalf of parents, children and guardians. I seek to achieve strong results for my clients and avoid creating unrealistic expectations. Honesty is vital within this sector, something I always offer.

I approach every case with enthusiasm and aim to always create a friendly yet professional atmosphere. My experience means that I am confident in my ability, which is evidenced within my achievements. I am a member of the prestigious law society’s Children Law Panel and also accredited to the family law and criminal litigation panels.

I rarely have free time but when I do, I like to spend it playing golf and visiting my son in Cornwall.
