Being suspected, arrested or charged with an offence is an understandably upsetting experience. The early stages of any investigation are the most critical, regardless of the severity of the crime. At this time the advice of an expert criminal law solicitor can make the difference between conviction, or acquittal.

Our experienced criminal law solicitors treat every case with the same passion and commitment you expect from a leading family owned firm. We pride ourselves on the quality of service we provide, working tirelessly not just to protect the best interests of our clients, but also to keep them fully informed about the relevant law and their options throughout the proceedings.

How we can help

The Criminal Courts are no place for uncertainty or inexperience. In the worst case scenario your liberty is at stake, and even in less severe cases, there is a risk to your reputation, family and livelihood. In such grave circumstances, the very best representation is essential.

As specialist criminal law solicitors, we have been representing clients in the Irish Criminal Courts for over 60 years, fighting tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients. We act in criminal law cases, including:

  • District Court criminal defence
  • Driving offences
  • Civil disturbances
  • Circuit Court criminal defence
  • Court of Criminal Appeal

Cost effective, expert assistance

The work our criminal law solicitors undertake is extremely diverse, although we do act in a particularly high number of road traffic offences and civil disturbances. Our aim is to achieve the best possible outcome in every case, protecting our clients from further damage wherever possible.

We deliver the meticulous, expert service you would expect from one of Ireland’s leading family run criminal law solicitors, while providing value for money throughout the case.
