At Cahir & Co. we are happy to discuss our fees and charges with our clients. We are fully regulated by the Law Society of Ireland and ensure that our clients are furnished with a contract of engagement and a fee quotation as soon as practical in relation to any matter in which we take instructions.
We feel it is important in building relationships with our clients, that they are at all times appraised of the work that we are doing on their behalf, the goals and expectations that they have from the instructions that they are furnishing to us. The costs that will be associated with those instructions and the likelihood of them recovering those costs from a third party. The Law Society have published a useful leaflet titled information in relation to legal charges which we supply to our clients.
We are always happy to discuss any concerns that our clients or perspective clients may have in relation to fees and their ability to pay fees and we believe that open communication strengthens the Solicitor client relationship.

Avril Collentine was excellent.
Sharon Cahir recently assisted me with regard to some estate planning matters. Sharon’s consultative style and common sense approach ensured that the process was highly professional and executed with the minimum of fuss. Clear communication and swift, comprehensive follow up are very important considerations to me. Sharon and the team excelled in this regard and I have no hesitation in recommending Cahir & Co. for professional legal counsel.

When our mother R.I.P. died my brother and I were appointed executors of her will. The administration of the estate was handled by Sharon Cahir and her staff in a calm professional manner which meant so much to us at a traumatic time. I was so impressed I have since moved my business to Cahir & Co. Solicitors and I would recommend them to anyone needing such services.
I was delighted to make my Will at Cahir & Company Solicitors. Sharon brought great clarity to my thinking and my Will consultation made it very easy for me to have a family conversation on what my wishes were. I now definitely know that having a consultation to discuss my wishes in completing my Will, will avoid any falling out between my family in the future.
We would like to thank Sharon for her friendly, firm approach on our first meeting and thank her for the referral onto Laura. Laura is extremely professional, friendly and helpful. She was quick to reply to any queries we had and kept us up to date with any developments when purchasing our new home. I would highly recommend Cahir & Co.

We had an issue regarding a boundary issue with my neighbour; I contacted Sharon for advice on obtaining adverse possession; while Sharon explained the process thoroughly and what the process entails, she also suggested perhaps some easier alternatives, such as negotiation or her preferred choice, mediation. This was something we hadn’t considered ourselves. I was delighted that we had contacted Cahir solicitors as they saved us so much time and hassle in the end.
