Whether you come to our solicitor offices in Dublin 7 or are looking for a solicitor closer to your home throughout Ireland, there are several areas to consider when seeking a solicitor in Dublin or indeed Ireland.
Find a solicitor that specialises in your area:

Ensure your solicitor choice is the right fit:
It’s important to be able to work with your legal team on a personal level also. Throughout a legal dispute you do not want a clash of personalities or to be second-guessing your choice of legal representation during the process.
Try to meet with a shortlist of solicitors, see how they conform to your ideas, what suggestions they have about proceeding and can you get along with them personally.
Know the cost:
Reputable firms will be as open and frank as possible about the costs associated with your case.
Criminal cases and extradition cases for example can last years with many meetings and court dates, family court cases can be extremely strenuous and costly.
Knowing what to expect and having an open discussion about costs should be part of the conversation you have with your chosen solicitor.
Remember not to go for the lowest priced solicitor. Costs come with experience, results and expertise. If you want a higher probability of winning your dispute you must do your research.
Ask for referrals, seek independent verification:
It’s one thing to have found a reliable solicitor, it is another to have one with proven results.
Should you be in a position to ask for social proof or recommendations or referrals on your chosen solicitor, do so.
