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.)
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.
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.)
Starting up or running a business in Ireland is tough.
I know this from experience because I have been doing it for over a quarter of a century. I started on 6th December, 1986 in a shop in Glasnevin, Dublin.
I have gained huge experience since then.
In property, retail, employment law, debt collection, commercial property, online business, digital marketing, intellectual property, etc.
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.
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.
Having a criminal conviction, even a minor one, can have serious consequences-in your career, travelling abroad, working abroad.
And it can have unforeseen consequences later in life.
Avoiding one, even a small one, is strongly advisable if at all possible.
Certain road traffic offences carry a consequential disqualification.
This means that a Court has no discretion about disqualifying you.
And the difference between a conviction for careless driving and dangerous driving is really not appreciated by drivers.
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.
Or not to be nice.
The thing we try hardest to do is be nice. 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 the office open at 7 most mornings.
And why you can organise a consultation outside normal working hours. Like Saturday morning or in the evening.
And when you call it’ll be me answering the phone.
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.
And you almost certainly want a solicitor who will really listen and understand your problem.
You might be someone who has never had any contact with the legal system in Ireland. This makes it all the more important that you are comfortable with whoever you engage.
And who will give you a voice and fight your corner without ever judging you.
You want to be able to pick up the phone, email or call into his office to discuss your issue at a time of your choosing.
You definitely want him to be approachable and not full of himself.
You want him to be professional and hard working.
And you expect him to return your calls..promptly…and to keep you informed at every step of the way.
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.
Let me give you an example. To make it easier for you to find answers to your questions we have created a number of specialist websites.
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.
If I can’t help, I will certainly point you in the right direction.
And I won’t beat around the bush in putting you straight. That way neither of us is wasting our time or money.
