Reproductive Issues

James McSweeney Solicitor specialises in the area of reproductive law. He has represented clients in the High Court and the Supreme Court in reproductive matters, most notably the case of Roche v. Roche [2010].

Undergoing fertility treatment is an incredibly stressful time for men and women. Time is of the essence for those undergoing treatment and, if things go wrong the effects of the negligence involved can be traumatic and final.
