Niamh joined Chambers in September 2020 after successfully completing pupillage under the supervision of Robin Kitching. During her first six, Niamh assisted Mr Kitching on an array of criminal trials with offences including: rape, dishonesty, drugs and organised crime. Niamh also observed a variety of regulatory work including hearings in the General Medical Council and inquests.


Niamh regularly appears in both the Magistrates’ and Crown Court and accepts instructions for both prosecution and defence. She has gained invaluable trial experience in the Magistrates’ Courts which has enabled her to build a strong understanding of witness handling and trial procedure. Niamh has also advocated in the Crown Court as counsel in bail applications, sentences and other interlocutory hearings. Niamh has dealt with a range of allegations including road traffic offences, domestic violence, theft, drug and public order offences.


Niamh accepts instructions in all areas of personal injury law including cases arising from road traffic accidents, as well as employers’ liability and public liability. She is regularly instructed to represent clients at trial, in assessment of damages hearings and in a variety of interlocutory hearings.


Prior to commencing pupillage, Niamh worked as a County Court advocate for a leading national advocacy services provider. She accepted instructions in a wide range of civil matters including interim applications and small claims trials.

Aside from work, Niamh has undertaken an extensive amount of volunteering. She has volunteered with a Crisis Volunteer with a national charity, providing written advocacy and advice to asylum seekers, and delivered legal workshops to young offenders.
