What our clients say

Following the death of my partner I did some research online and found James McNulty & Co. They  took care of everything and put me at ease. I am so glad I chose his firm for the legal work involved

Frank H.

After my accident I found myself with no car and a back injury  that wouldn’t go away. I tried to deal with the insurance company thinking they would treat me fairly. How wrong could I have been so I turned to James McNulty & Co for help. They took care of all the headaches and eventually settled  for more than what I was prepared to accept. I thank you sincerely for all you have achieved for me. At the outset they said they would take care of everything and they most certainly did

Seamus T.

I am very pleased with how James McNulty & Co handled making my will and Enduring Power of Attorney. On our first meeting they were very professional and reassuring. Calls and  emails were answered promptly. I was taken through the various options open to me  and then had time to make up my mind about the inheritance tax issues involved.    I would recommend this firm highly to anyone who needs a solicitor to represent him or her when deciding what to do with your estate as they were able to give me numerous inheritance tax saving ideas

Mary M.

I had a very positive experience with this firm when moving home. They did a great job and kept me very informed along the way. They are very polite and efficient, responding immediately by phone, email or text.  They made the whole house moving process easy for me and quicker than I anticipated. I highly recommend them

Olga W.

I am extremely pleased by the professional skills of James McNulty & Co solicitors Omagh.   I made the right decision when I initially spoke with them and signed up to their terms of business. The firm was very sensitive to my  needs, questions and time when gathering details relating to my husband’s estate after his untimely death.  They demonstrated respect and sincere caring during some of the most difficult and emotionally painful times.

Molly G.

Everyone in the firm did an outstanding job. They always answered and returned my calls in a timely manner. A very professional & courteous staff. I highly recommend them if you are buying or selling a farm

David G.

An excellent firm to work with.  I could not believe that everything was done without me having to run back & forth to their  office all the time. I bought a house through James McNulty & Co recently and also made a will during their wills promotion in November and starting with their receptionist Patrick McGirr they seem to get things done on time and within budget in an efficient friendly way.

Leanne M.

I was very pleased with the information provided by Deirdre McSorley when my mother died and how easy she made it for me to take in.  You are really a helping hand for anyone at such a traumatic time as the death of someone very close.

Margaret P.

I am very pleased with the outcome of my case. Martin McIvor and his assistant kept me informed throughout the process and got it resolved in an expeditious manner.

Jenny C.

I dealt with Paul Maguire in relation to a commercial case and he was more than patient with me in what was a complicated transaction.  He did not hesitate in repeating anything that needed repeated to help me and he  saw the importance of bringing me with him at all times, by helping me understand some of the most difficult and challenging legal issues in my case.   I am forever indebted to Paul Maguire  and I highly recommend him to anyone with a complex legal matter.

D. E.

I was very pleased and 100% happy with the manner in which Martin McIvor dealt with me when I was buying my first home.  He took time to explain the various parts of the transaction and how he managed to pull the various parts together was really good. Many thanks again.

Paul Q.

Shauna Allison  was very understanding in our sensitive case and  made us feel  at ease whilst getting  things done in a timely manner. We would have no hesitation in recommending James McNulty & Co for a firm that is going to go above and beyond for their clients.

Paul and Ursula M.

I am more than pleased with Cathal Murray’s advice and work on our daughter’s behalf in getting the hospital that caused her problems to settle rather than having to go through a traumatic trial even though I know you would have won.   The settlement you negotiated was way beyond what we thought they would go but it was the preparation and commitment you put into the case that carried the day. Thank you, and your team at James McNulty & Co – I would recommend you to any friends and family faced with the need for expert legal advice and guidance.

J. H.

Cathal Murray was great to work with. I was satisfied with the attention my case was given and extremely happy with the outcome. Whilst I hope to never be in such an accident again, I know who to call if it happens.

Stephen C.

Thank you so much for my wonderful settlement following my accident in Donegal. It was comforting that such a level of expertise and knowledge was available in N.Ireland without having to travel to a solicitor based in the Republic of Ireland.

Teresa McCaul, Tandragee.

Very good firm to deal with. We have used James McNulty & Co for advise in regard to matters on both sides of the border and found them very efficient to deal with and communicate regularly with us using up to date technology.

Stephen Barrett, Barrett Electrical, Omagh.

Cathal, Just a word of thanks for all your work on my claim. I am grateful for the work that you put in to get the claim settled. Also could you thank Shauna for me as well please.

Happy New Year to all at James McNulty& Co Many thanks, Lawrence Dobbin, Ballyclare.
