Client Testimonials

“Thanks for looking after the purchase of 650 in your usual efficient manner. You made it a painless process for me.”
Property Client
“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.”

“During a recent commercial property transaction, we had occasion to engage the services of Orpen Franks Solicitors LLP 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 Solicitors LLP should a future need arise.”
