Agent : Euan Thorneycroft
Steve was born and raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland. At 18 he moved to Dublin and studied Law, by mistake, and went on to be a pot-washer, bouncer, security guard and call centre operative before landing a job as an investigator for a large law firm in Belfast, where he eventually qualified as a solicitor. He then moved to a smaller firm where he could practice in the field of civil rights law. Steve has been involved in several high profile cases; in 2010 he represented a factory worker who suffered racial abuse in the workplace and won the largest award of damages for race discrimination in Northern Ireland legal history. He holds a certificate in Advanced Advocacy and often lectures on various legal subjects (but really he just likes to tell jokes).
Steve Cavanagh is the author of the Eddie Flynn books, a series of US-based courtroom thrillers which follow a con-man turned top lawyer. He is also the author of the standalone novel Twisted, which tells the dizzying tale of JT LeBeau, an enigmatic crime writer.
Steve Cavanagh is the pen name of Stephen Mearns.
