Eimear Bahnson is the Senior Equity Associate at the Massucci Law Group and practices exclusively in the area of Ohio family law. “Helping clients get through what is often a very difficult period is one of the most rewarding parts of my work as a family law attorney,” says Eimear. “At the end of the day, empowering our clients and advocating on their behalf is why I went to law school. “
Eimear is a longtime resident of Columbus and began her legal career in 2009. Following graduation from law school, Eimear, working as an attorney at the Capital University Law School Family Advocacy Clinic, focused her practice on helping low income individuals remove barriers to the justice system. In this capacity, she dedicated her legal practice to representing victims of domestic violence. Her dedication and effective advocacy helped hundreds of women gain access the legal system to end violent relationships through protection orders, terminating abusive marriages by divorce, and securing custody orders to protect their children.
Eimear’s dedication to serving others has continued throughout her private legal practice as she continues to represent clients in a wide variety of family law matters. She has worked tirelessly to improve the lives of children through her service as a guardian ad litem.
Regarding this work, Eimear reflects, "I get to help individuals and families navigate through one of the most difficult times in their lives and I feel honored to do so. Whether I am advocating for an individual or on behalf of a minor child, I know the importance of gathering the necessary information and attempting to work towards a resolution to allow everyone the opportunity to move forward in a timely manner."
Eimear’s continued commitment to meaningful access to justice is reflected in her dedication to, and significant participation in, pro bono programs and community service. Eimear is dedicated to enhancement of the legal profession and has been recognized by her colleagues for her leadership and commitment. She is a 2015 graduate of the Columbus Bar Association Barrister Leadership program, designed to help new attorneys develop leadership skills, connect with influential leaders in both the legal community and the city of Columbus.
Eimear was selected to serve as Chair of the Columbus Bar Association Family Law Committee and was elected last year to a leadership position on the Board of Governors. She is frequently asked to present at continuing legal education programs on family law.
She is actively involved in Second Saturday, a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing women the support needed to navigate the legal, emotional, and financial aspects of divorce. Eimear uses her knowledge of family law to provide critical information about the legal system and how to be an effective advocate in the divorce process.
Eimear has served on boards of several non-profit organizations including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Young Professional’s Advisory Council and the Pleasure Guild, Nationwide Children’s Hospital where she was selected to leadership positions as Secretary and Vice President.
