Emma Meagher, from Boherlahan, Co Tipperary, has been appointed as Partner heading up the Women’s Medical Negligence Unit at James McSweeney Solicitors. Emma joined James McSweeney Solicitors in 2008. She quickly established herself as an invaluable member of the Team and is now recognised as one of Ireland’s leading Medical Negligence Solicitors. Throughout her early years in the legal business, Emma developed and refined her keen interest in helping women who have suffered as a result of negligence during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. As a result, in 2015, Emma established a unique, mother-focused, legal advice unit and has built a support team with a wealth of interest and experience specialising in obstetrics and the Law.
Emma brings a professional and empathic approach to her work. She has regularly featured in various national publications and is consulted widely by media contributors on Medical Negligence Law.
A mother of two young boys, away from work Emma can be found most Saturday mornings watching football training at Wicklow Rovers and likes to spend afternoons with her family exploring the Wicklow countryside and beaches. She balances her busy work life with a love of cooking, literature, art and horse racing, especially flat racing. Happy to give something back to the Community she finds the time to volunteer with the Free Legal Aid Board and also offers free legal advice to the London Irish Centre, Camden.
