I have lived most of my life in Clonmel except for short periods when I studied law in Dublin and worked in Scotland and Sligo. I started business in Clonmel in 1983 and have not looked back since. I have a keen interest in law which has sustained me over the years. I manage the practice and am involved in all our practice areas. I have a particular interest in advocacy and appear before the Circuit and High Court in Equity and Bankruptcy cases. I am an arbitrator and have been involved both as an arbitrator in disputes and as an advocate for clients in arbitrations. As an accredited mediator, I am a keen supporter of mediation as an alternative to Court. I am a Personal Insolvency Practitioner and would like to help as many people as I can to return to solvency.
I graduated from the University of Limerick with an LLB degree in 2001 which included German as a language. I trained with Lynch Solicitors in 2002 and qualified as a solicitor in December 2005. I am now a Partner and I manage the firm's Family Law and Litigation departments. I specialise in all areas of Litigation including Personal Injuries, Medical Negligence and Product Liability. I manage a considerable number of cases where we act for Clients in the DePuy defective hip device litigation. I also lead the Women's Medical Negligence Department at Lynch Solicitors and have successfully concluded many complex Medical Negligence actions in all areas of clinical and Medical Negligence litigation. I have particular experience in dealing with cancer misdiagnosis cases, child birth injury and other gynaecological injuries.
I am a native of Clonmel in Co.Tipperary and while I joined Lynch Solicitors in September 2014 I have been around the practice of law for considerably longer than that time. I graduated University Limerick in 2014 with a First Class Honours Law degree. While in University I was invited to represent UL in The Advocate All Ireland Business Law Challenge. We won both the overall competition and best written submission. I have a First Class Honours Master Degree from Trinity College Dublin where I was awarded a distinction in my thesis. My thesis was on the area of Specialist Litigation.
