Services for private clients

Michael Nugent & Co provides a wide range of legal services to individuals and private clients, including the following.

Conveyancing; sales, purchases and mortgages of houses and flats

Buying and selling property can be stressful, and it is usually the most expensive financial transaction of our lives. It has to be done right, first time. Delays and problems with a bad title can be a nightmare. At Michael Nugent & Co we can look after the sale and purchase and mortgage of all types of properties, quickly and efficiently.

Injury Compensation

If you are badly injured, you may be entitled to compensation. Whether you are injured in a car, at work or simply in the street, you may be obliged to formulate a claim and notify the people who you think are responsible in writing, within a very short time. You may not know at the outset, if you are going to end up recovering quickly from your injuries or getting quick payment from the person responsible, or if you are going to have long term injuries, or if you are going to end up having to go to the Courts for compensation. The wise course is to contact us right away, as soon as you can after the accident, and we can guide you through the process from start to finish so as to ensure that your rights and entitlements are safeguarded.

Employment problems

Among the most stressful disputes you can have, is any dispute at work. Knowing your rights and your options usually is the first step to sorting things out, whether your dispute is with your employer, or with a fellow employee. Only in extreme cases is it appropriate to resign, or to be fired. Consult with us if you feel that things are getting difficult at work and we will try to help before things get any worse.

Probate – Inheritance and Succession Matters

We can sort out the legal issues arising on the death of someone, right from the reading of the Will, through to making all necessary filings with the Revenue Commissioners and extracting a grant of Probate or Administration of the estate. We can guide you through the necessary processes to administer the estate, and to ensure that the wishes of the deceased as expressed in the Will are carried out efficiently. In the event that there is no Will, we can make arrangements to have the estate administered on intestacy. We can always advise as to the rights and entitlements of the family and next of kin and assist in having the affairs of the deceased arranged in a tax efficient manner.

Wills

Everyone should make a Will, especially if you have children or a husband or wife to think about. If you let us know what you have in mind, we can usually have a Will drafted and executed within a week.

Family, Marriage and Partnership disputes

If a personal relationship is breaking down, the last place you should be heading for is a solicitor’s office. If however, you feel that you have done as much as you can to sort out the legal and financial aspects of your relationship, and that it is time to have a solicitor either protect your rights, or to formalise the terms on which your relationship should end or continue, then please contact us. We can help you to reach agreement, we can draft a formal Separation Agreement which might help to resolve areas of dispute, or make formal applications for you to the Courts for a Separation or a Divorce. The emphasis here is on resolving disputes and reducing tension, for the good of everyone involved.

Crime, Immigration

We do not practice in the areas of crime or Immigration law.
