I studied Law at University College Cardiff and did my Solicitors Final Examinations at The College of Law in Christleton near Chester. I was articled to the Borough Solicitor at Maidstone Borough Council before moving on to become an assistant solicitor at the London Borough of Sutton where I was responsible for advising that Council's Leisure Services Committee and Planning Sub-committee. I dealt with Planning Inquiries and was also involved in the commencement of Wardship and Care proceedings. Having advanced to the status of Senior Solicitor I was promoted to Head of Conveyancing and Contract Services and in 1990 I left local government in order to travel extensively through the Near and Far East to Australia and back before returning to take an assistant solicitor's post in private practice in Wrexham where for some years I specialised in Divorce and Family Law as well as Criminal Law including advising and assisting detained persons in the police station.
In 2006 I became a Consultant Solicitor at my father's firm, Barry Macloskey Solicitors in Gresford and when he died quite suddenly in July 2017 was briefly the Principal of his firm until it was acquired by Hopleys GMA incorporating Keene & Kelly. In my time at Barry Macloskey Solicitors I dealt with Conveyancing and also more recently in the preparation of Wills, all the while continuing to provide out of hours police station advice and assistance.
In my new role as a Consultant with Hopleys GMA incorporating Keene & Kelly I will continue deal with non contentious matters as well as standing by to assist detainees in trouble with the police.
In my spare time I like to go running and cycling as well as to play 5-a-side football and the occasional round of golf.
