        Thank you so much to Niamh and the team for all your help along the way. As a first timer on this process was great knowing I could pick up the phone and have all my queries answered without any hassle.


        Having just finished up on a long road to obtaining my divorce and starting this new adventure, just a short note to say thank you Niamh, Camilla, and Orla for all the help along the way. Delighted now to be settled into my new home. It was great knowing the joint sale which had taken so long to agree was in such safe hands.




        Remember this is the most important and biggest transaction most people have in their lives and you want your solicitor to do the job thoroughly so although you want a competitive price you do not want one where it is uneconomic for the lawyer to do the work properly.
