Client Testimonials

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 Solicitors LLP 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 Solicitors LLP 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“My dear Gráinne, Just a short note on behalf of Jimmy & myself to express our thanks for all your kindness and thoughtfulness over the past 2 years. Warmest wishes.”

“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 LLP. My family have used Orpen Franks Solicitors LLP 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.”
