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.
A BCL graduate of University College Cork, I qualified as a solicitor in March 1986.
My late parents, from Dublin and Roscommon respectively, moved to Tipperary just in time to make me a Tipperary woman, but I gained varied experience working in Counties Kilkenny, Roscommon and Cork before settling back in Tipperary in 1992 and working in my own general law practice from 1998 to 2019. Over the years I have gained experience in almost every area of law because being a sole practitioner requires a great amount of adaptability as you never know what type of legal issue is going to come in the door next.
I am a member of the Mental Health Commission’s Panel of Legal Representatives since 2007.
I joined Lynch solicitors in March 2021 and am currently specialising in the areas of Conveyancing and Probate.
