Divorce & Separation
It is essential that you seek legal advice as soon as possible. Often what you say and do at the early stages can have an
impact on the eventual outcome of the divorce. When the relationship breaks down it is often
in circumstances where there is little time to prepare for all the decisions that need to
be taken. Our Matrimonial team will ensure that you are properly equipped and informed on
all decisions that must be taken, especially in regard to children and finances.
Any form of domestic violence should be taken seriously, and at McCourt & Co we have a long experience of representing victims

Accidents at work
Your employer is obliged by law to take steps to protect you from injury whilst at work. Where an employer has failed in
their duty of care and you have been injured as a result, then you are entitled to claim
compensation. An injury may be physical but can also be psychological. McCourt & Co has many
years experience in dealing with claims arising from work accidents and we have fought tirelessly
to ensure that clients receive just and fair results. Typical claims include: slips, trips
or falls, bullying or harassment claims, and unsafe working environments.
If you have concerns about the outcome of medical treatment or advice from a doctor, dentist or other medical professional
under whose care you or a family member have been placed, then you may be entitled to claim
compensation. Medical negligence is an emotive subject, our aim is to put clients at ease
and provide them with the right legal advice to create a suitable outcome. Typical claims
include: surgery, post-operative care, misdiagnosis and lack of informed consent.

Residential Property (Conveyancing)
A house is probably the most expensive purchase that you are going to make and you need expert advice to ensure that the
property you are buying to live and invest in is legally in order.
The role of a solicitor in the conveyance process is to provide expert advice and assist with any legal issues that may arise
in the purchase.
Why do I need the help of a solicitor when buying a home?
An expert property solicitor will find out as much as possible about your property before you go ahead with completion. Buying
a home can be a complicated and time consuming process and also carries a certain amount
of risk. Having the support of a solicitor means you can be sure you are minimising risk
and having all legal documentation and contracts completed correctly.
What happens if a problem is found?
If a problem is found with your property a conveyance solicitor can make you aware of the steps you can take and help you
through the process before entering a contract. Having the security of an expert opinion
behind your decision will give you the confidence and peace of mind you need for such
an important decision.
