Solicitors with a will to win!
Our partners, Patrick Sheridan and Paul McEvoy have always aimed to do their best, and have consistently achieved, from winning prizes for their academic work at University through to setting legal precedents in litigation and achieving winning outcomes for our clients across a wide range of legal sectors. Winning for us means getting the best outcome for our client, often in difficult circumstances. We strive to continually improve the service we offer. It’s not a win for us unless it’s a win for you!
- Your interests, as a client, will always come first.
- We aim to be easy to talk to and to give you good, clear, practical advice as soon as possible.
- We won’t take on your case if we don’t genuinely believe we have the expertise to give you the service you deserve.
- There will be no hidden or “surprise” charges. Depending on the type of case, we may be able to put your mind at rest from the outset that your opponent will have to pay your legal costs. In any other type of case we will explain clearly and in writing how we propose to charge before you have to decide whether you want to engage us at all.
Patrick Sheridan served his apprenticeship with a leading Human Rights focused firm of Solicitors, rising quickly to the level of partner, before leaving in 2001 to start Sheridan & Co Solicitors in Downpatrick. He is an experienced litigator and has achieved notable outcomes for clients in cases ranging from Personal Injury Caims through to Judicial Reviews. He also acts for clients in various matrimonial and family law cases and is a practitioner of Collaborative Law, which, where the parties are committed to it, can significantly shorten and simplify the procedure of divorce and division of assets. Patrick holds a Certificate in Advanced Advocacy and is recognised as a Senior Litigator by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
