Dillon Solicitors are working remotely

 

Working Remotely 

 

All of our staff are currently operating on remote access but thankfully as everybody is set up to work remotely and we are a paperless office all of our correspondence and documents are scanned into our system and as such there is minimal disruption for the efficient operation of our services.

 

You can contact us by ringing our normal office line 01-2960666 and our Client Service Executive Michaela Byrne will handle all calls as our office number is diverted to her and she will pass on the message to the appropriate Solicitor.

 

If you wish to contact any of our Solicitors directly you can email them at:-

Wills

We have received a large number of queries in relation to clients wishing to update / make their wills and this is a service which we continue to be able to offer for clients.

Accordingly, if you have any queries in this regard please do not hesitate to contact us.   The Law Society have issued a recommendation in relation to how wills can be witnessed while observing the appropriate social distancing recommendations.  We attach a link to a piece on RTÉ yesterday including an interview with the Law Society President Michelle O’Boyle explaining the social distancing rules in relation to the making of wills.

We have also received queries from clients in relation to the making of Enduring Powers of Attorney and again these are matters which we can deal with and organise the witnessing of.  Please let us know if this is an issue for you.

 

Online Conveyancing

Most of the conveyancing work which we are doing is being done on an online basis.   We are fully equipped to manage conveyancing work and it is possible for property / title searches to be carried out for the purpose of completion in most of the registry offices.  Again if you have any queries in this regard please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

Mediation

In relation to family law matters, there have been certain issues with regard to access arrangements but our experience is that most couples are adhering to the recommendations i.e. access should operate as normal where at all possible and where not possible that other forms of access in the form of social media calls i.e. facetime, Whats app video or Zoom be used to ensure that the children maintain a reasonable and appropriate level of contact with the non custodial parent.

In circumstances where unresolvable issues have arisen we are conducting and facilitating remote mediation discussions on Zoom and if this is something that may be of interest please contact us further.

 

Other areas where we are continuing to offer advices are in the relation to business agreements / Partnership Agreements / employment difficulties and we are available to deal with any of these queries should the need arise.

 

In the meantime we hope that you are continuing to stay well and safe and hopefully together we will get through this very difficult period in all our lives with our families safe, secure and free of illness.

 

Once again, if you have any queries in relation to any legal matter please do not hesitate to contact us on 01-2960666 or info@dillon.ie.
