Fighting for the Everyday Person

We understand how emotionally draining (and expensive) it is to take legal action against someone in a powerful position. Many of our clients approach us feeling dejected and embarrassed about what has happened to them. They have been abused by the police, ridiculed by a newspaper giant, or mistreated by a medical practitioner. They feel powerless against these other parties and think that they have no way to make things right. That is where O’Brien Criminal & Civil Solicitors comes in. We fight for the everyday person. With police misconduct at a high, and media companies hungry for juicy gossip (which might be completely false!), we are passionate about helping our clients get compensation for the physical, mental and reputational harm caused.  

Our firm is there with you along the way. We explain the law to you in an easy to understand manner. We keep you up-to-date with how your case is proceeding. We also have a trauma-informed approach to lawyering when interacting with you. We understand that you have dealt with traumatic events and that engaging with the legal system is a stressful experience that can re-traumatise you. For this reason we are sensitive to your mental and emotional needs and will assist you in an appropriate manner.
