TESTIMONIALS

I was wrongfully arrested and found myself in a police cell late at night. Niall O’Neill was recommended by a friend who is a barrister and Niall made contact with me during the early hours of the morning at the Police station. Niall gave calm and clear legal advice and explained what would happen whilst I was held in custody. Following his advice and police interview I was released and my charges dropped a few days later. I am very thankful for his composed and concise guidance whilst I was in this awful situation. I am very grateful and I hopefully won’t require his services in the near future, but he is the person I will contact if I need help again.

In my capacity as a Prison Law Consultant I acted for a client who had been represented by Niall O’Neill at her trial and subsequently for her parole. She was very complimentary of his skills and she had nothing but praise for the service she received. I was also instructed by the firm to represent the client at a parole hearing. In all my dealings with Niall O’Neill I found him to be efficient, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I was also deeply impressed that the firm were prepared to meet the agent costs themselves to ensure that the client was effectively represented. I would have no hesitation in referring future cases to him.
