I believe that family law is different to any other area of legal practice in terms of the human and emotional elements involved. If you are going through a relationship breakdown, you may have many worries, such as the impact on your relationship with your children, the costs that will be involved if you have to go to court, and the potential effect on your future financial security. My first priority is to empower you with a full understanding of the process including information on all the options available and the likely costs.

I will not give false assurances as to what can be achieved in relation to the outcome of your case, but I will offer a clear, focused and objective view. I will work with you to find the best solution for you and your family and provide you with excellent advice as to how to reach that solution within the parameters of the Irish family law process.

I have been working in family law for over ten years and I continue to find it very rewarding to see the transformation in my clients from when I first meet them to the completion of their family law matter. My clients know that they have a committed and determined ally working for them on their case, but they also know that in all their dealings with me they will feel heard and supported; my clients regularly advise me that they feel more reassured and at ease having spoken with me. I love my work and I believe in what I do. I hope that as part of this I can help you to look forward to the next chapter of your life with optimism and to see the process as laying the foundations for your future.
