Civil Law Services

Ask not what you can do for O'Brien Solicitors, but what O'Brien Solicitors can do for you.
We provide friendly, highly professional legal advice

O'Brien Solicitors is a full-service criminal law firm. And by full service, we mean full service. Not only do we defend you against criminal charges, we also fight for compensation where you have been the victim of a civil wrong.

A civil wrong occurs whenever the State - usually acting through the police - oversteps its authority to act. This could happen when police arrest you without good reason, or hold you in detention too long, or otherwise breach your rights.

We help you reassert your rights against the State. If you have been the victim of a civil wrong, we help you gain compensation from the State. Come in to our office and see exactly how we can help you - the first meeting is free.


Look at this beautiful bunch of humans.
