Gerard Groarke, Barrister, Law Library

Gerard Groarke has been practising in civil, commercial and criminal law at the Irish Bar since 2002 with a focus on trial work and courtroom advocacy. Since 2015 he has been experimenting with commonly available technologies and developing his own computer-based tools, all with a view to providing better service to his solicitors and clients and improving efficiencies in his practice.

He is the first barrister in Ireland to go fully paperless, the first barrister in Ireland to custom-build a document automation solution to streamline his drafting, and the first barrister in Ireland to provide a web-based upload facility to enable solicitors and DPA clients to upload instructions and multimedia directly to his office.

Maria O'Donovan, Founder at Maria O’ Donovan & Co.

Maria has been working extensively with families going through separation as part of her family law practice. For over 12 years, she has been guiding and supporting clients through the separation process. Through this work, Maria has recognised that more than any other issue, poor communication leads to higher levels of conflict and stress. Maria has seen that where her family law clients take her communication advice on board, this has proven to lead to lower levels of conflict and particularly about the children.

Maria is a certified coach, mediator, collaborative practitioner and facilitator in restorative justice as well as being a family lawyer. These skills and training mean that she understands the complex issues that can arise in separation and how best to promote effective communication.
