You & Your Solicitor

Why use a solicitor

There are many reasons why you should get legal advice from a solicitor.

  • Education and training: Solicitors are educated and trained to the highest standards through the Law Society’s Professional Practice Course, in-office training with law firms, and mandatory, life-long professional development.
  • Solicitors are held to high professional and ethical standards and are regulated by the Law Society of Ireland’s Regulation Department.
  • Your communications with your solicitor are protected by legal professional privilege.
  • Practising solicitors must be covered by Professional Indemnity Insurance, while clients also enjoy the protection of the Law Society Compensation Fund.
