Dear John (Costello)
I couldn’t thank you enough for your kindness and wisdom through what have been very challenging times. You were the one thing that kept me going and your support and belief that the whole process was so terribly wrong will sustain me going forward. Please accept this small give in thanks and I hope you write that book some day. The Family Law one that is.
Frances (Family Law Client)

Dear Grainne and Breda,
My very grateful thanks for your email on Thursday 1st December 2016.
Whilst writing, I wish to thank you both, together with your colleagues past and present, for the excellent service you have provided to me and to the Geddes family over the years. Although Orpen Franks has grown considerably since my father first had dealings with a previous generation of partners away back in the 1970’s or perhaps even earlier, there still remains the personal touch.
Therefore, I also wish you and Orpen Franks continued success throughout this millennium.
Every blessing
Peter – Probate Client

“Dear Gráinne, Once again, I am so pleased with all your help and guidance through the process of dealing with both my Aunt’s estate and my Dad’s estate too. It was a very difficult two years but your help was so fantastic that I really do not know what I would have done without your input, guidance and above all your patience.”
Dave – probate client

“During a recent commercial property transaction, we had occasion to engage the services of Orpen Franks and we were delighted with the level of service and attention to detail shown by Ms Fionnuala Murphy and her colleagues which resulted in a successful conclusion of the transaction within a very aggressive timescale. We would certainly re-engage with Ms Murphy and her team at Orpen Franks should a future need arise.”

Stephen, BancTec Limited

“For the past number of years we have been working with Fionnuala Murphy and the team at Orpen Franks on a complex property matter. Fionnuala is a pleasure to do business with as she is not only extremely professional but also friendly and approachable with great patience. She is very knowledgeable, calm, reassuring and available and has helped us work through challenging, complex legal situations. Fionnuala has a great understanding of our particular organisational structures and values and takes into account our specific requirements. I would highly recommend Fionnuala and the team at Orpen Franks.”

“My Brothers and I sold a property with Orla’s assistance. We found her very professional and her attention to detail was exceptional. It was a pleasure to do business with her.”

John Donohue
“When I first met Orla O’Connell, she assisted in a conveyance of a large property and noticed her attention to detail and calm manner. I am very happy, that she is presently solely involved in conveying two different properties for me. She has gained my complete confidence because of her manner, diligence and urgency towards getting issues resolved. Above all she has integrity, which has been my requirement and experience of The Orpen Franks practice over 38 years of sole and confident association.”

“Dear Fionnuala

A heart felt thank you for all your help and guidance through the complex legal issues that unfolded during my project. Your professional integrity is unquestionable and the reassurance of knowing you are there is invaluable.”

“Dear Christian,

Thank you for your support”

“Fionnuala managed the sale of my house in 2014. She was very personable, highly knowledgeable and very focused. Any roadblocks were met with solutions and recommendations almost instantly.

She steered us through the minefield that can be selling property in Ireland. What impressed me most was her integrity and determination to do the right thing to ensure that any legal issues where fully and properly resolved which had not been the case on previous sales of this property.

I would definitely use her again and would highly recommend her for conveyancing.”

Tiffney Quinn
“Hi Grainne

I just wanted to write and say how much I appreciated your work on our behalf just before the Christmas break in regard to the property.

You turned the whole thing around under a really tight timescale and yet did it all with a tremendous attention to detail.

Nora and I really appreciated the thoroughness and speed with which you handled the whole thing and enabled us to benefit from the Capital Gains relief.
I know there is more still to do – but did not want such an effort to go unappreciated.

All best.”

“I have no hesitation in writing to say how pleased I have been with the service received from Grainne Butler and all the staff at Orpen Franks Solicitors. My family have used Orpen Franks on a number of matters over the years and most recently in dealing with the Estate of my late Mother. The Estate has been dealt with most efficiently and speedily. It is so refreshing when someone says that they are going to do something and it is done without fuss or delay. I am more than happy with the friendly and efficient service given by Grainne.”

Ian Robertson
“I have worked with Fionnuala Murphy on a number of occasions due to my involvement both with Dun Laoghaire Methodist Church and Bloomfield Care Centre. At all times I have found her to be both efficient and approachable. She has excellent interpersonal skills in that she develops a good relationship and communicates well with her clients and she has the ability to think creatively, when finding solutions to problems. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.”

“Dear Rachael

Your advice and support has helped us no end throughout a very difficult time in our lives. We cannot thank you enough.”

“Dear Rachael

Thank you for everything you have done for me and for helping me to achieve justice. Yourself and the barristers involved in my case were so kind and so professional.”

“Our experience of working with Rachael has been very positive. Alongside providing a professional service to her clients, she has an authentic interest in what it is they want and need. She uses her vast experience in the medical negligence and personal injury sector to ensure she achieves the best possible outcomes for families. In cases where future care is needed, Rachael has proven she can secure a suitable, sustainable and cost effective service for the family. We gained a reassurance from the openness and knowledge she displayed in her engagement with us from the outset.”

“Dear Rachael,
Many thanks for all your help and kindness.”
Mary (medical negligence client)
“Dear Rachael
Perhaps it is because you deal with medical negligence and all the grief that so often entails, but I was struck, and appreciated, how you so quickly recognised how distressing the past several years have been for me.”
