“My experience with Richard Grogan & Associates firm began and ended (successfully) over a 10 month period. They promised to do their best for me and they really delivered. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They treated me and my case with complete expertise and professionalism throughout. They explained plainly all aspects of the process to me and made sure I completely understood what to expect. They will tell you straight up if you have a case or not and in doing so will alleviate a lot of stress. I will always sing their praises and wish them the best.”

“The first thing you should know about Richard Grogan and associates is that they tell you straight up if you have a case or not. They know employment law inside out and were actually recommended to me by a friend because of their excellent reputation and success rate. I went to them about an unfair dismissal case and they not only helped me with that, but went out of their way to help me in other parts of my case that I hadn't even considered. Richard is very articulate, knowledgeable and straightforward so you always know where you stand. Michelle is such a lovely person, a great listener, puts you at ease when you are nervous and has just got pure class in the courtroom. I am so happy that they helped me with my case and I will be recommending them to everyone! Thank you so much!”

Richard Grogan & Michelle Loughnane know employment law inside out and upside down,they are a highly experienced team of Solicitors. Richard is a very straight talker, it is very important to listen to him carefully as he does not repeat himself. Best of luck in the future to Richard Grogan & Associates,They are a top class firm.”

D. L.

“A professional, highly motivated, driven, honest, methodical, niche team of lawyers. Having dealt with these legal eagles through Richard Grogan & Associates and prior to the firm opening in 2009 I cannot recommend them highly enough for any Personal injury, employment law resolution or contentious matters whether acting for the plaintiff or the defendant.
Both front of house, back office and partners of this firm are astute listeners, interested in facts not maybes or might have been. You ask a question you get a straight answer, which shows the wealth of experience this firm holds. If you don’t ask a question you get the answer anyway, because again this firm know there niche areas inside out and upside down. In fact, I think after the initial consultation Michelle and Richard play out the different scenarios by which a case will develop and get it fairly accurate every time!
While not the cheapest firm in town not the most expensive either, but, without a hesitation the best value.
I would like to wish this firm many more years of success, accolades and look forward to hearing more of Richard’s unrivalled insight to employment law during his many contributions on nation airwaves.”

T. C.

“My experience of Richard Grogan & Associates started back nearly four years ago. At the start I found Richard very difficult to deal with as he has a manner that could be misconstrued. Once I realised that Richard is rather eccentric in his approach towards his clients and that he is probably the best lawyer I have ever had represent me, I was quiet happy to sit back and follow his instructions without question. Richard knows his stuff and watching him perform in a WRC hearing was a joy to behold. To see him sit back and watch my employers representative throw everthing and the kitchen sink at me, then for Richard to speak one sentence and destroy him was fantastic. If you want a top class lawyer then look no further than Richard Grogan. I would also like to say that Michelle has also been fantastic when dealing with my workplace injury claim winning me a large sum of money that I wouldn't even have made a claim for had it not been for her advice. Finally I would also like to say how great all the other staff behind the scenes have been. Thanks again everyone and best of luck to you all.”

T. W.
