Client Feedback

Dispute Resolution

“A massive thank you to Conor Maher for the success of our case. I was always kept well informed of progress and was particularly pleased with the level of detail supplied throughout.”

“Great customer service every step of the process and always there to help. Would highly recommend. Thanks to Conor and the team.”

“Conor was very communicative from the start, provided me with good advice and kept my expectations realistic.”

Regulatory Law

“Never failed to answer my emails and telephone calls promptly, professionally, politely and to my satisfaction. My legal help was provided mainly by Conor who did not over-promise or under deliver in any way. The entire process was made considerably less stressful by Conor and his team and I would not hesitate to recommend them, in fact I already have.”

“Very quickly thought conversations with Conor things seemed to click into place and my case seemed strong. The total professionalism I have been privileged to be a part of was simply first class, and the preparation, accuracy, and positive support was second to none.”


“My sincere gratitude goes to Conor. Very efficient, understanding and supportive. I have kept my driving licence and the Police refunded my fines I paid.”

“Conor dealt with my case and kept me informed throughout, got the case dropped before the court date, and has now applied for a reimbursement of some of the costs and I look forward to that as an unexpected bonus.”

“It’s been a long journey but today we won. Conor dealt with my case and was worth every penny – I would genuinely recommend.”
