Sean O’Brien is the founder and partnet of a team of solicitors in Tallaght; but what exactly is a solicitor, what do they do and how can they help you?
Despite most Irish towns having at least one firm of solicitors, many people are unclear as to why we’re here and what we can offer.
You’ll also hear us referred to as lawyers and there are two types of lawyer: solicitors and barristers. A barrister is a legal professional who represents you in court. A solicitor is a legal professional who gives legal advice generally, and if it becomes necessary, will arrange for a barrister to represent you in court. A solicitor can also represent you in all courts.
What are legal services?
They represent a wide range of services
- conducting of the sale of a business,
- preparing of wills for husband and wife,
- drawing up of a charter for a Club,
- helping an employee prepare an unfair dismissal claim,
- buying or selling a house,
- drawing up of contracts between companies,
- suing someone,
- preparing of a Power of Attorney,
- offering of “no win, no fee” personal injury claims,
- advising of a person at a Garda station,
- assisting of take-overs , mergers and aquisitions.
