    No matter how large or small your estate you should consider making a Will or setting up a Trust for children and dependents. Making a Will allows you to make decisions with regard to the distribution of your estate. Without a Will, your property will be divided out amongst your relatives according to the rule of law, which may not be in accordance with your wishes.

Claims for medical negligence by their nature are not speedily resolved and often involve an element of the injured party seeking the truth behind their injury and accountability on the part of the defendant for their actions but we will guide you through the litigation process and make every effort to ensure your claim runs smoothly and you are properly compensated. A claim of this nature requires a legal team with significant knowledge and experience in the area of medical negligence together with sensitivity and compassion for the circumstances in which you and your family might find yourselves. We take a supportive yet pragmatic approach to all medical negligence claims and will work with you to achieve the best possible outcome.

Larry R, business owner and employer.
I first came in to contact with Eoghan P. Clear Solicitors when acting as auditor for a large retailer. They have consistently impressed me with their broad legal knowledge, professional service and the simple fact that they will always return a call. I have since used them personally and recommended them to other clients and family members. They are my first call when I have a legal question.
