PA Duffy Solicitors Belfast – Reviews

We always appreciate it when our clients take the time to leave us testimonials.

I can’t thank everyone at PA Duffy enough for helping me win my case. Conal has devoted significant time and effort to helping me recover damages for medical negligence. I have been highly impressed by the manner in which he conducted my claim and would certainly recommend his services to anyone in a similar position.

Medical negligence client

Conal McGarrity is the most determined and fearless advocate for rights. In the face of extreme hostility from the State he fought at every step and delivered a result that totally vindicated our position. The result totally changed the course of my life. The case also resulted in wide-ranging legal reform.

Human rights client

From calling PA Duffy for help we cannot fault the efficiency and professionalism we was given. We cannot thank Seanin Somerville enough for all her help and reinsurance. No matter what time of day or night, she was there to guide us through everything. No problem big or small she puts her full effort into helping us through it. After the bad experience we had with other solicitors she really reassured us through the difficult times we were experiencing. For sure!! PA Duffy will be the only people we would call on for help. Thank you so much

J Green

Seanin, I just want to say a massive thank you for all your hard work. I think yourself and PA Duffy have been brilliant from start to finish and I can’t thank you all enough. If anything, ever pops up again I will not hesitate to contact you.

Road traffic accident client

Fantastic service from Emma McCaul from start to completion on a recent house purchase. Timely communications keeping me, and my mortgage brokers updated every step of the way and responding to my queries, going the extra mile for me to ensure I had all the correct paperwork signed and rearranging the completion date for me when I had to delay at the last minute. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Emma and P.A. Duffy & Co Solicitors.
