Martina Murphy Solicitors are based in Dooradoyle/Raheen and also in Castletroy.   We are large enough to ensure your matter will be dealt with by a specialist solicitor but small enough to ensure that our clients are treated in a kind, courteous and transparent manner.  We are committed to providing the highest standards in legal expertise to all our clients in an accessible and friendly manner.  This practice has an excellent reputation not just in Limerick but in the Mid-West.  We are one of the few practice in the Mid-West to have been awarded the LQ Standard of Excellence – an independent verification of the standard of care we give to all our clients.
