Client Testimonials

“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 Solicitors LLP practice over 38 years of sole and confident association.”
