Our overarching promise is to provide the highest standard of professional legal advice and service to our Clients. We deliver our services in an easy-to-understand and cost-effective manner, backed up by friendly, helpful staff with a genuine interest in helping people through their legal difficulties as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Buying or selling a house?

We have considerable experience in house sales and purchases. We appreciate that the sale or purchase of your home is a significant life event, a significant financial transaction and for many can be a daunting and indeed stressful experience. We use our skills and experience to guide you through the process, explaining what is involved and what we are doing in plain English to ensure that you fully understand what is happening at all times. We also utilise our experience to preempt and address likely problems before they arise helping to ensure that problems or delays so often encountered in the conveyancing process are minimised or eliminated thus achieving a smooth and efficient transaction. We want you to be entirely satisfied with our conveyancing services and we pride ourselves on our reputation in this field, evidenced by consistent referral business from friends and family of existing satisfied clients.


If you are considering selling or buying your house please get in touch for a free no obligation consultation where our experienced team will discuss with you what is involved.


We also deal with the sale, purchase and leasing of commercial property and Eamon holds a Certificate in Commercial Conveyancing awarded by the Institute of Profession Legal Studies, a Queens University Belfast in 2002.

Family & Matrimonial

If your marriage or relationship with your partner has run into difficulty it is important that during such an emotionally vulnerable time you do not lose or give up your legal rights. Those rights could include financial arrangements, property and access or custody of children. Most marriages or relationships have their ups and downs but where the breakdown has become or looks as if it will become irreparable then it is time to see a solicitor. We will provide completely confidential, sympathetic yet practical advice on such matters as next practical steps, maintenance, arrangements for children, divorce or separation and financial and property matters arising on the breakdown of the relationship.


If you are a victim of domestic violence or concerned for your safety or the safety of your children we will be able to take fast and effective legal steps to protect you. The law is there to help you. We regularly obtain emergency court orders to protect and assist clients who are the subject of physical violence or threatening or abusive behaviour within the home or from ex-partners, as well as orders to exclude the perpetrators from in or around the victim’s home or workplace. We understand how important it is to keep you safe and we will provide sympathetic advice, support and assistance. If you are in immediate danger you should call the police for further assistance.

Accident Claims

Had an accident? Not your fault? You may be entitled to compensation! We have provided independent effective representation to many satisfied clients in compensation claims in the past 6 years , to include claims arising out of road traffic accidents, accidents at work and accidents in public places. We have secured hundreds of thousands of pounds of compensation for our clients including six figure settlements in complex significant injury cases. If you have sustained injury loss or damage in an accident which was not your fault please contact us for an initial free no obligation consultation to discuss the prospects of a successful claim and what is involved in pursuing an entitlement to compensation!

Probate & Wills

Making a will is the only way you can be sure that your wishes will be followed after you die. If you do not make one, all or part of your estate may go to people who you never intended to benefit. Not only that, inheritance tax legislation means that, if you don’t prepare properly, a substantial part of what you leave behind may be payable in taxes.


Wills are not solely about passing on your assets. You can also include specific funeral arrangements. For instance, burial, cremation or the use of your body for medical research can be specified in your will. You may also want to appoint legal guardians to care for your minor children if you and your partner should both die before they are eighteen.


Another important consideration is the appointment of executors. These are the people who will deal with your estate in the event of your death. Ideally these should be business minded family or friends, or professional advisers.


It is important to review your Will regularly – ideally at least once every five years. You should also review your will after any change in your family circumstances, such as death divorce or bankruptcy, or any publicised change to tax legislation.


Probate is the legal process in dealing with a person’s estate after they die. This involves identifying their assets and ensuring that these are preserved, collected in and distributed in accordance with their will or, if there is no will, in accordance with the law. This also involves settling any debts or claims against the estate and dealing with tax affairs in respect of the estate. We have the experience to guide you through this whole process and what is a very difficult time.

Licensing

We are able to deal with all aspects of liquor licensing, bookmaking licensing and registration of clubs, to include applications for new licenses, transfers and renewals.
