Wills and Probatewills

Making a will is a simple and inexpensive thing to do. It is both wise and responsible to make your will now. It is the only secure way of ensuring the proper care of children or dependants and that your wishes are adhered to. It will simplify things for relatives if anything does happen and will ensure that those you care about are properly looked after.

It is also the best way of making sure your property and assets are divided and allocated as you wish. Once a will has been drawn up and signed we can store it in our fire proof Wills Safe, at no extra cost to you, or you can retain it yourself. You can change a will at any time as your circumstances change.

Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person. It involves resolving claims and distributing assets and property according to the person’s wishes and instructions in their will. We have the experience and skill to ensure that all Probate matters are handled effectively and with care and sensitivity.

Enduring Powers of Attorney. It is wise to consider signing an Enduring Power of Attorney so that your wishes can be carried out in an inexpensive way by your family or close friends in the event that you are unable to make decisions for yourself.

Employment Lawemployment

Over the past 20 years the Law regarding employment has changed considerably. Contracts of employment are essential in all work places. They cover specifics such as: description of the particular work and duties to be performed, hours of work, pay and conditions, overtime arrangements, holidays, maternity and paternity arrangements, grievance and dispute procedures.

It is important that a contract of employment is drawn up that is specific to individual businesses and companies and to each position or job. We can advise employers and employees on Contracts of Employment and other issues.

Other issues that commonly arise at workplaces and affect employment are:

Accidents at work
Employment disputes
Bullying
Discrimination
Termination of employment or unfair dismissals

There is a wide range of legislation covering employment. A short visit to our office can clarify what area of legislation covers particular situations and help you understand your rights and options if you are experiencing difficulties.  We have considerable experience with Employment Appeals Tribunals, Labour Relations Commissioners, the Labour Court and Equality Authority. Some claims can have a very short time limit of six months so it is important to contact us for advice at the earliest opportunity.
