Our solicitors provide a comprehensive and sympathetic family law service. We understand that the breakup of a relationship can be one of the most traumatic events in a person’s life. Whilst we cannot change your circumstances we can ensure that this event is dealt with in a sensitive and sympathetic manner and ensure that you are advised of your legal rights and obligations under Irish legislation.

We are acutely aware of the effect of marital breakdown on the family unit and we will endeavour to find solutions which will facilitate the minimum impact on the lives of children involved. We will do everything in our power to implement mediated and negotiated agreements and will only pursue your matter through the courts when all other non contentious avenues have been exhausted.

We will work with actuaries and forensic accountants to deal with complex financial arrangements and pensions and will advise you of the impact of such on you in layman’s terms.

I just wanted to say thank you for everything. When I went through a very difficult few weeks, and had no solicitor representing me, you took on my case when I needed it the most, then I got the result needed. I could not have wished for a better solicitor.
