Affectionately known as Mikki, she joined Myers, Fletcher & Gordon (“MFG”) as an articled clerk in 1962 under the tutelage of one of the Firm’s founding partners, W.S.K. Gordon. Mikki was later admitted to practice as a Solicitor in 1967 and employed as an Associate of the Firm. In 1973, she became the first woman to be elevated to Partnership at MFG.
Since that time, Mikki has served with distinction inside and outside the Firm. One of her most notable contributions to the Firm was in 1995, with the opening of MFG London in the United Kingdom, where Mikki was appointed its first Managing Partner. She spent 3 years in London developing and steering the Firm in its early years.
Mikki is one of Jamaica’s leading property attorneys and has amassed a legion of grateful and fiercely loyal clients. However, Mikki’s career transcended the legal profession as she has also contributed significantly to Jamaica’s public and private sectors. She is a longstanding director of Jamaica National Group, a former member of the Electoral Advisory Commission and the former Chair of the Electoral Commission of Jamaica. She played a pivotal role in ensuring free and fair elections for the citizens of Jamaica. In 2017, Mikki was conferred with the nation’s 4th highest honour, the Order of Jamaica in 2017 for her indelible contribution to the nation. In 2005, she retired from the Partnership and served as a Consultant in MFG’s Property Department since then.
Apart from her outstanding and trailblazing career, Mikki, who is the epitome of grace and sophistication, is wife to Herman and adoring mother to Rachel and Matthew.
We honour Mikki for her outstanding contribution to Myers, Fletcher & Gordon, the legal profession and the nation.
Wishing you a happy retirement, Mikki!
