Cormac, Arklow

“I have always had complete confidence that everything that needed to be done was being done, and Deirdre Burke has always kept me fully informed with all developments. Her level of customer service is second to none. No calls or questions are left unanswered and nothing is too much trouble. In the areas where Deirdre Burke specializes, you could not ask for a more competent and compassionate team on your side.”

Pam, Terenure

“Deirdre Burke was my advisor during a very difficult marital breakdown. Deirdre not only provides the best advice but her unique ability to listen and guide me during each step of the process made it easier to manage. Deirdre looks for the best solution for her clients which is very much centred around the children, while at all times looking for an amicable outcome for both parties where possible. I would highly recommend herr work to any respective client requiring advice on martial breakdown.”
