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!

Many thanks to Richard Grogan and Associates for all your help over the last few months.
Your efficiency and work rate is amazing and Richard had no problem given you a call at 9 o clock at night to keep you fully informed and up to date. We achieved a prompt resolution when I needed their help.
Richard Grogan 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.

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.

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.

Your insights are brilliant to read. I have some expertise in the employment field but I must say that I have often read your information before I make a judgement myself. You have a great way of assessing information. Moreover, it is very helpful and altruistic of you to provide such expert information in order to assist and help others. That is very much appreciated.

R. D.

Sometimes "you get caught in a moment and you can't get out of it". And sometimes it's good to take a pause to seek the best counsel you can before you pull the trigger! Sometimes you have to listen to tough messages and sometimes this can push you to think of solutions that.you never would have thought off when "caught in the moment". Money very well spent, Thank you Richard.


As an academic teaching employment law annually to 100s of students, the subject can sometimes seem 'dry' and difficult for my students to grasp. Richard has a gift of explaining how the law works in practice, its strengths and limitations, and the practical implications for employees and managers. Using anonymised examples from his extensive experience, Richard brings the technical provisions and human impact together in a unique way. Despite his hectic schedule, Richard is always willing to give freely of his expertise, and my students and I appreciate, and learn from, his generosity.


Richard is very kind, professional and always willing to help person.
I highly recommend Richard Grogan &Associates to act on your behalf in any employment law or other legal matters.

HR Buddy

I contacted Richard Grogan & Associates Solicitors for a consultation on employment law. The consultation was arranged in a professional and timely fashion by the legal secretaries and detailed information was provided in advance about documentation to be shared with the firm, fees, media to be used for the consultation, etc.
I did not have an employment law case to discuss, rather, I was looking for general legal advice on a couple of topics.
Richard talked me through all the legal aspects to be taken into consideration on the topics I was interested in, and asked additional questions in order to provide me with a more accurate legal advice, pertinent to my queries, even though I had no actual case to talk over.
The conversation was very professional, clear, and the advice was given with no vagueness or ambiguities, and I received all the relevant information I was looking for.
A comprehensive consultation note, describing the conversation we had and the advice provided was promptly forwarded to me soon after.
I appreciated dealing with this firm and will certainly contact them again if I will require in future any further employment law advice.


Richard is an expert in Employment law and he regularly shares valuable insights on topics around employment law among his peers and in the media that demonstrate his knowledge. I would recommended Richard Grogan and Associates to anyone in need of quality legal advice


I would like to thank Richard and his team for the excellent work carried out on my behalf. The knowledge and professionalism shown to me was first class. I am very grateful for his support and I would highly recommend Richard Grogan and Associates to anybody requiring legal representation.

Richard came highly recommended to me from business associates which I now really appreciate the recommendation and will pass on this recommendation to all me friends, family and colleagues in the future.


Richard has been providing insights to the basics of employment law for free via his LinkedIn page throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, for no purpose other than to help educate the public on all matters relating to their rights, current issues in employment, etc. A more than generous contribution to society considering the amount of stress everyone is under at the moment with the ongoing pandemic.


I have used Richard Grogan & Associates for Professional Advice with respect to forthcoming legislation. I have found his level of knowledge in the area of employment law unsurpassed. In any given issue I have found him to be forensic in his approach. I believe that there are few as well versed in employment law as he and his colleagues are. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Senator Gerard Craughwell

My experience of Richard Grogan & Associates has been an extremely positive one. My first contact with Richard was straight and to the point. He stated all the requirements needed from me to determine the merits of the case. Had an appointment within days and the facts were brilliantly laid out for me including all the positives and the negatives.
Richard moved forward on the case and liaised with me throughout.
I had a difficult time dealing with my legal matters and Richard was great in this regard . He always kept my wishes and my feelings in check as no-one likes to potentially go to court over work issues.
At the end of these matters I was delighted put things behind me and I believe that Richard and his team deserve this recognition. I would have no doubts in recommending Richard Grogan to anyone with employment matters. I cant see how anyone could have done a more professional job.


Richard's employment law updates on LinkedIn are topical and factual, they have been particularly beneficial in the new Covid world that we live in. Thanks Richard, they have helped me a lot!


Top class quality service. Highly recommended 👌


Richard was extremely supportive and provided excellent legal advice during a brief phone call. During my certified absence from work, the employer has contacted me on numerous occasions, causing me great distress and adding to my current health problems.


Richards knowledge of employment and contract law in Ireland is second to known. I can highly recommend using his practice.
