“I am a construction contractor and recently contacted Lynsey Henderson at MKB Law for advice. Lynsey could not have been more helpful and reassuring, and during our chat it became clear that I did not have an appropriate system in place for agreeing terms before commencing work for clients. Lynsey got to work on a set of terms and conditions tailored to my business. She made the whole process extremely easy and she was knowledgeable when answering my many questions. I cannot recommend MKB enough.”

Niall Madden, Madden Contracts

“As a local business owner in the digital sector I engaged with MKB Solicitors to draft our new contract terms and conditions to protect both our business and customers. The legal team, in particular Jose Lazaro, was highly professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. They clearly understood our requirements and translated all the legal “jargon” into something we could understand and discuss with them. We would not hesitate to recommend MKB to any small businesses that are seeking legal services.” 

Jamie Robinson, EyeKiller

“I worked with Gordon McElroy and the Corporate team at MKB Law after a recommendation, on a potential business purchase on very tight timescale – which resulted in almost overnight review of documents. Having used a number of Belfast’s ‘big 5’ firms for other jobs, Gordon and the team come out tops on response and delivering the impossible!”

Sean Blaney, Blaney Group

Lynsey Henderson did a great job in reviewing a number of complex corporate documents for me. She took the time to explain the contents and was able to help me finalise the documents under a challenging timeframe. Thanks to Lynsey, I now have clarity and confidence in the documents that I am signing and would highly recommend her corporate services going forward.”

Barry Hobson, Lost City Adventure Golf

“This is the second time I have used MKB Law and worked with Emma Smyth. Emma was fantastic throughout the process of house-purchase. She laid out, up front, what was required and explained everything in detail and made sure I was 100% clear on everything. Her assistant Tonya Gregg was also fantastic with almost-immediate responses and very clear communications. I have had nothing but excellence from Emma and Tonya and I recommend them to anyone.”

Neil Davis

“We were recommended Emma Smyth to carry out conveyancing on a property in Belfast. My wife and I were leaving London after 15 years. The Coronavirus pandemic made things incredibly difficult and with an 8-month old baby, the situation was made even more stressful! Emma’s level of service went beyond what I expected and she was incredibly responsive and sensitive to our circumstances, helping to drive the sale through.”

Gerard Carlin

“I recently purchased a new home and Aoife Hegarty undertook the conveyancing. She could not have worked harder to overcome the difficulties that arose and was always quick to return phone calls and emails. I was kept fully informed of developments. I have been recommending Aoife and MKB to everyone including the bank manager who arranged for the transfer of funds!”

Karen Porter

“Would definitely recommend MKB Law. We just bought our first home and we couldn’t have done it without the professional and supportive guidance of Aoife Hegarty. It was a very stressful and drawn-out sale, but Aoife was very reassuring and was in constant communication with us. She was happy to answer every question we had from start to finish.”

Katie Adair

“We recently bought our first house using MKB Law and could not have been happier with the service. Emma Smyth was extremely helpful, explaining the process clearly and providing expert advice.

Dearbhaile Slane

“We used MKB Law for the purchase of our home, as they had been recommended by my boss. Our completion was a nightmare but our solicitor Emma Smyth navigated all issues calmly and professionally, keeping us in the loop at all times. I was not easy to deal with in terms of nerves, as the stakes were very high for us. She was absolutely instrumental in getting the deal over the line for our dream house!”

“Having a delicate and emotional case, I felt daunted by the thought of having to detail my experiences to someone I had not met before, but this fear quickly dissipated when I met with Billy Muir. Very quickly I felt at ease and we were able to professionally and empathetically go through my case. He helped me understand the next steps and my anxiety started to reduce. Billy, thank you for your patient personable approach and for reaching a conclusion that offered me terms whereby I was able to move on and feel I have contributed to an improved working environment for my former colleagues.”

Ms C

“I was extremely happy with the service from MKB Law. From the initial enquiry, the response was very quick and I had my first discussion within a few days. The process I went through with my employer was a very long drawn-out one but I had regular emails from MKB’s Employment Law team checking up and giving me pointers to look out for. The process was handled very professionally and in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to recommend MKB Law to others or come back if I have further work.”

They were always available via email or phone for updates and advice, and I felt in very safe hands from start to finish. I cannot thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me during this time.”

Ms B

“To Aine Toner, it is difficult to put into words the gratitude I have for all your hard work and securing the best possible outcome for my safety and well-being. The basis of any good working partnership is trust and I always had that with you. You have a very professional head on young shoulders and a good heart. I am not the same person who walked into your law firm – I have developed a fighting spirit and enthusiasm for a brighter future!

I Googled ‘Family Law specialists’ and MKB Law was the first firm I looked into, and I can genuinely say I am glad I did! Aine Toner was great – she contacted me almost immediately and after a brief run-through of my situation, I decided to advance taking her legal advice. That decision most definitely paid off for me as I am now in the best position I have ever been in as a father, and am getting to spend good quality time with my son. I cannot thank Aine enough for all her help and for accommodating remote consultations.”

Mr B

“I switched to MKB Law as I felt I wasn’t getting anywhere with my previous solicitor in my matrimonial case… and I’m so glad I did! My case was assigned to Aine Toner who, from our first meeting, got straight to the point and eased the stress and anxiety that my case was causing. It has been a very long and difficult road but thanks to Aine’s knowledge and professionalism, I got the result I so desperately needed. I have already and will continue to recommend Aine and MKB Law in the future.”

A special thank you to Anne Marie Kelly and her secretary Beth for putting up with me throughout the process – even though to me the words ‘thank you’ do not come close.”

I was mentally bruised by the time I reached you but quickly felt my confidence return with your advice and prompt replies to my queries.
