What our Clients have to say...

I recently sold my business ‘Jesse’s Paint shop’ in Kirwan which I owned and operated for over 17 years.  I have gone to Pat O’Shea for legal work for many years and when Pat retired I kept going. Ivan Baxter and everyone in there is so lovely. They have all looked after me for many years and have been great. I was very, very happy with how they handled the sale of the business for me.
