General

I have taken on a new employee, Suzanne De Jarne who specialises in Family Law. Suzanne has been chosen for her experience, character and professionalism. She has adapted very well to the firms structure and work ethos covering all types of family law. She has also complimented the firms walk in service where new clients can attend the office without an appointment on Thursday and Fridays. I am looking forward to seeing Suzanne progress in the coming months.

XENVISION

Proud to move that step closer towards providing a “walk-in” service where clients can just walk in a Proctor Moore office and have their matter dealt with on the same day and at a fixed cost. A complete walk in service!! Nothing like this has ever been offered by a law firm. This will all be possible with the following […]

DISTRICT JUDGE

The judicial application did not progress as expected but the experience was overwhelming and definitely something to consider again for the future.

STATUTORY DEMAND

August 7th, 2011

The presentation of a statutory demand is the first step to making an individual bankrupt. There are two types, one without obtaining a judgement debt in county court and another after judgement is obtained.

This is an amazing advance from what the profession […]

March 5th, 2011

I attended mediation yesturday and I was very pleased to note the parties settled. Mediation has to be attempted with an open mind. Parties need to try and put aside their differences and look at the costs of litigation. The only winners in litigation are the lawyers. All I care about is my client was happy with the outcome and […]

IMPORTANT NOTE TO CLIENTS

March 5th, 2011

Litigation is all about fact finding. You need to feed your solicitor with as much relevant information as possible. It is important that you are aware your solicitor is taking a good note of your instructions throughout your case and ensure instructions are confirmed in writing. Time and time again it happens at trial that certain information comes to light […]
