Why do I do what I do?
To help you make better decisions.
I provide a huge amount of free information on this, and other, websites to help you make better decisions.
I believe in providing value in advance by providing useful information on my websites and on my YouTube channel.
Then, if you want to take it further you may want to organise a consultation to get advice on your specific problem.
And I believe in telling you straight, in plain language, exactly where you stand.
Ultimately, the decision about any particular course of action will be yours.
But I believe my job is to ensure you are well equipped to make the best decision for you.
Property law and conveyancing
Are you thinking about buying a house or apartment?
I have been buying and selling property in Ireland since 1986. (I am the author of Buying a House in Ireland-a Step By Step Guide.)
Because of this I understand the practical pitfalls to avoid, as well as the legal aspects of buying or selling property.
The peace of mind that comes from having a competent solicitor is hard to put a value on.
And I return phone calls and emails to and keep you up to date with what is going on. (The uncertainty and being kept in the dark is one of the biggest creators of stress in a property transaction).
Employment law in Ireland is a mine field. The amount of legislation, regulation, codes of practice is enormous.
Because of my experience and background I do a lot of employment law.
I have helped many employers and employees with their employment/HR problems. (I am the author of Employment Law In Ireland-The Essentials for Employers, Employees and HR Managers.)
And you will find a huge amount of free information on my website, EmploymentRightsIreland.com.
I started my first business on 6th December, 1986 in a shop in Glasnevin, Dublin. I was 23.
I have gained a wide range of experience since then, in many different businesses.
I have had businesses in property, retail, construction, development, investment, online business, convenience stores, petrol stations, digital marketing.
Personal injuries claims
Accidents happen. Everybody knows this.
But if you suffer an injury as a result of the fault of another you may be entitled to compensation. It’s provided for in law and why insurance is taken out.
I help people who have suffered personal injuries to obtain what they are entitled to.
(Please note: in contentious business a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.)
Probate law and Wills
Probate law involves two critical areas:
- Wills and
Making a will is essential, especially if you have children.
I also help people with the administration of the estate of a loved one who has passed away, and extract Grants of Administration/Probate from the Probate office.
Trusts can be very useful to provide for minors and to delay, for whatever reason, the passing of assets to beneficiaries. Trusts can also have significant tax advantages.
Access, custody, maintenance, guardianship are issues that I deal with on a daily basis.
Many people don’t know what their rights are and get a raw deal as a result.
Separation and divorce are, regrettably, common occurrences nowadays in Ireland. You might be in this situation and just want to move on.
I recognise that family law is different.
The emotional and psychological trauma involved in family law cases make them different.
Criminal law/Road traffic offences
We only take a small number of road traffic or criminal cases each year. If this is the area of concern to you feel free to contact us.
Small solicitor practice
Terry Gorry & Co. Solicitors is smaller than most solicitors firms.
That’s why we try harder. (When you are small you don’t have any choice).
We simply can’t afford to not return calls.
The thing we try hardest to do is be respectful. And professional.
Because we can’t take you for granted.
And we don’t.
We’re still a little hungry.
We’re not afraid of plain hard work.
That’s why you will see me in the office open at 7 every morning.
We take the business of giving legal advice seriously. This is why we don’t give free legal advice.
We give out a huge amount of free information about all aspects of Irish law on this website and our other websites.
And on our YouTube channel.
But we do insist on charging for consultations and legal advice.
Because giving legal advice carries with it an onerous responsibility, one we take seriously.
Giving good legal advice takes skill, judgment, and time. And if we get it wrong we can be sued for professional negligence.
This is why, in a nutshell, we charge for our time and legal advice.
We think it’s a fair deal and best to be up front at the outset so we both know where we stand.
Choosing a solicitor
Choosing the right solicitor isn’t easy.
There are plenty of good solicitors in Ireland.
No matter what your legal difficulty is, it is probably causing you a lot of worry and anxiety.
I believe in giving you straightforward advice in language you will understand. I don’t believe in beating around the bush and telling you that you have a case if you don’t.
I don’t believe in telling you that you are right in your dispute with your employer if you’re in the wrong.
I don’t believe in telling you to go ahead with your property purchase if there is a problem or issue that you might come to regret.
When You’re Smaller You Try Harder. Or else.
When you are a small fish in a big pond, you have to keep moving. Or the bigger fish will eat you.
That’s why we have to try harder.
That’s why we provide a huge amount of free information on a number of websites and on our YouTube channel-to make it easier for you to find answers to your questions.
For example, if your problem is with employment law, or a small business issue, or family law, or probate and making a will we have a website dedicated to that topic alone. That way you won’t have to be wading through information that has no interest for you.
So if you’re happy speaking directly to the Principal solicitor and getting well researched, cost effective, professional advice and representation, we will get on just fine.
But if you are concerned about fancy waiting rooms, a prestige Dublin address, or an impressive art collection…we are probably not for you.
You might be an ordinary citizen…a small business owner…an entrepreneur…a member of a Board of Management of a school…a school principal…a parent…an employee…an employer.
And I won’t beat around the bush in putting you straight. That way neither of us is wasting our time or money.
