Are specialists in family law and mediation located in Galway. If you want to pursue a constructive resolution with your partner, we offer clients both family law and mediation services to help families come through a family breakdown with their dignity, their privacy and their finances conserved for their future benefit.

At this difficult time, you may be worried about the cost, both emotional and financial, for you and your family, of a contested family law case. There are significant benefits to be gained from carefully considering your options before choosing a process to constructively resolve differences.

1st Galway Solicitors to set up to practice exclusively in family law  – to offer a comprehensive family law service  which is not compromised by servicing any other area of law – because we believe very particular skillset, focus and system is necessary to ensure successful outcomes for our clients.

Our Mission

Our clients are embarking on a most stressful and life-changing transition.  Never before have they been confronted with such fear – fear of not having a roof over their head, fear of running out of money, fear of being duped financially, fear of permanent damage to children, fear of losing the day to day relationship with their children.

We work with clients who want realistic reasonable solutions.

Our priority at all times is to protect clients from getting caught in an adversarial family law case that eats up precious financial resources and escalates tension and bad feeling

Our approach supports couples who are trying hard to make their separation work as co-parents and wish to minimise the damage to children and who want to move on as efficiently and painlessly as possible.
