Caroline Dunlop

I studied Law at the Queen's University, Belfast. Following my graduation in 1999 I pursued post-graduate studies in the field of European Law, with a particular interest in the judicial review process and access to the European courts. I obtained a Master's degree (MSc) with Merit in European Public Policy from Queens University, Belfast in December 2000. The focus of my research for my post-graduate studies was the locus standi of public interest groups in the European Court of Justice, and the lessons that could be learnt from examining the standing of such groups in already established legal systems in the USA and UK.

I joined the Litigation team in Higgins Hollywood Deazley Solicitors in September 2001 and have since specialised in the field of Personal Injury Litigation. I was promoted to my current role of Associate Solicitor in November 2012.

I have expertise in a broad range of matters including high value and complex personal injury claims arising from road traffic accidents, slips and trips in public places and accidents at work. I have experience of representing Clients in all tiers of the court system, from the County Court to the Court of Appeal.

I have extensive experience of both obtaining and defending civil injunctions under the Protection from Harassment (Northern Ireland) Order 1997.

I have brought a number of successful Judicial Review applications in the High Court.

I recently represented the mother of a young man who tragically died whilst in the custody of Maghaberry Prison at a Coroners Inquest into his death.

As a legal aid practitioner I have an excellent working knowledge and understanding of the legal aid system in Northern Ireland and can provide advice on all aspects of civil legal aid.

If you have been injured as the result of an accident which wasn't your fault or if you require legal advice on any other civil matter please do not hesitate to contact me as detailed below.

We offer an initial free consultation to discuss your problem, your options and the costs involved. If you are eligible for legal aid we will let you know at an early stage and we will complete the application forms with you. If you are not financially eligible for legal aid we will outline the potential costs that will be incurred in the work you have asked us to do and if you have any prospects of recovering these costs from another party.

Caroline is a member of the Belfast Solicitors Association - and the Law Society of Northern Ireland -
