Cormac is a solicitor specialising in housing and public law. He has experience in all areas of housing law including homelessness, unlawful evictions, disrepair and possession cases. Cormac currently also works alongside Adam Tear on his public law cases, challenging unlawful decisions made by government departments and local authorities via judicial review. He is passionate about using the law to level the playing field for tenants who are being mistreated by bad landlords or ignored by their local authority.
Cormac joined Hodge Jones & Allen Solicitors as a trainee in 2017 and worked with Daniel Fitzpatrick in Housing, Jacqueline Major in Family, and Homa Wilson in Employment before concluding my training with Susie Labinjoh in Civil Liberties. In that time Cormac also coordinated a pro bono legal advice clinic with Camden Citizens Advice Bureau, providing free legal advice on housing and employment issues.

Cormac can’t get enough of the outdoors, and tries to spend as much of my free time as possible hiking and wild swimming. He recently spent four days hiking across the White Mountains in New Hampshire, USA. When he’s not outside, he likes to read and watch movies.
