What our clients say...

I would like to thank [Danielle Hughes] and the team at Kirwans for the Will writing service they recently provided to my wife and I. 

It was a task we have been avoiding for a while, but Kirwans made everything so easy for us. They made themselves available at a time to suit us, patiently advised us of our options and sent us a draft Will within 48 hours. We were then able to tweak the draft before returning to Kirwans, again at a time to suit us, to sign our Wills. For peace of mind, they even offered to store the original copies. 

The entire process was painless, comprehensive and completely professional. I would have no hesitation in using Kirwans in the future and given the opportunity, I would whole-heartedly recommend them.
