Specialist Employment Law Services, including personal grievances, bargaining disputes, health and safety and related litigation.
I have worked as a litigation lawyer since 1990. I specialise in family and employment law. I enjoy the challenge of both areas of law, as both are all about people, and solving relationship problems.
In my family law work, I enjoy the challenge of assisting people through a difficult period of transition in their lives. I work in the areas of domestic violence, care of children and property disputes. For twenty years I have acted for children in the Family Court.
In my employment practice, I work in a full range of disputes and believe I bring strong litigation skills, but also assist parties by resolving matters and negotiating settlements if at all possible. I act for workers, employers and unions.
I regularly appear in the Family Court and all of the employment institutions including the Mediation Service, Employment Relations Authority, Employment Court and Court of Appeal.
I believe my expertise is recognised by frequently being asked by the Law Society to present at seminars and conferences in my specialist areas of practice.
