Having dealt with Sinnott Solicitors over the past year on an employment related case, I cannot recommend Carol and her team highly enough.

In what was a very distressing situation they provided expert legal advice, while being tactful and reassuring.

They saw the case through to a favourable and painless resolution and were at all times up-front and fair regarding fees.

I would have no hesitation in advising anyone seeking legal advice or representation to contact Sinnotts.

Having required the legal services of Sinnott & Company in the past I have found them to be both professional & friendly. I received excellent legal advice imparted to me in plain English making it much easier for me to take important and crucial decisions.

I would highly recommend them as a competent company who make dealing with legal issues both refreshing and easy.

Bytek IT Resources Ltd, Wexford

I would like to thank you for a stress free claim throughout, The friendly and efficient way in which you dealt with my claim is much appreciated. I could not have wished for better people to have dealt with it and the service I have received has been excellent, the work was handled very professionally and I always received very prompt replies to all my questions.

Should I ever need the services of a solicitor in future, I will certainly be giving you a call, I have recommended you to friends and family.


Sinnott’s looked after our son’s medical negligence case and when I saw Carol and her team arrive at the Four Courts with 3,000 plus documents I realised how much work goes on behind the scenes in a Solicitors office. They put constant pressure on the other side to reply to their correspondence and even had them in court on 2 occasions for not responding on time.

Their barrister was a genius and an absolute gentleman. We were truly delighted with the settlement and what you did for our m******. It means so much to us and to him. We even got a guided tour of the Four Courts. Thank you so much girls.

T & C. D

I found this firm an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout. Peter Burbridge Solicitor dealt with my case and he was excellent at following up and keeping me informed at all times. We had a difficult probate case and there were all sorts of stumbling blocks along the way between obtaining and interim death cert, a lis pendens registered on the property and so fourth. Peter kept the case moving and my wife and I will definitely use Sinnott Solicitors again and we shall have no hesitation in recommending this excellent firm to our family and friends. I was so impressed at the manner in which he dealt with the matter that I asked to speak to his boss Carol Sinnott to pass on my compliments to her.

You looked after my claim with due care and attention after the squad car that I was travelling in was rear ended during the course of my duties. My colleague who recommended you found your firm a pleasure to deal with and so did I. I have since recommended your services to family members and other members of the force because I was impressed by the way my case was handled. Thank you.

Garda D. H

I was maliciously assaulted as a result of an object being thrown at me, causing me to sustain injuries during the course of my duties. The Garda compensation specialists at Sinnotts office and their Barristers gave my case prompt attention. I didn’t need to chase them about my claim. I found the opposite to be the case. I am very happy about the compensation that I obtained and about the extra services that were made known to me.
