Barry Hobson – Lost City Adventure Golf

Shonagh Maguire – Feb 2021

“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 – May 2020

“We were advised to approach Emma Smyth at MKB Law to handle the conveyancing for our property purchase. Emma could not have been better. Contrary to stories about conveyancing solicitors, Emma constantly kept us up to date, indeed prompted me to take action when necessary. It took a very short period of time considering. I thought Emma was excellent and I will be recommending her to any friends/colleagues.”

Stephen McKenna – March 2020

Emma Smyth handled our conveyancing for our house purchase over the last couple months. She was amazing throughout the whole process, keeping us up to date on every step. Only took about 6-7 weeks in total from first contact to us getting the keys to our new home, which was so fast! Cannot recommend MKB enough. Thanks again.”

Ciara Leigh – Feb 2020

“I used MKB Law for the purchase of a property.

I can safely recommend them to anyone who needs expert help with a work-related legal issue.”

Mr B – Jan 2021

Suzanne Keenan was outstanding in every way and extremely knowledgeable in employment law. When I reached out to her, I had almost given up, but she went that extra mile to help me and am very glad she did. She is a wonderful genuine person, who has a personal way with her whilst being very professional. I would gladly recommend Suzanne and her team to anyone needing employment advice and would tell them not to think twice about considering anyone else. Thank you for everything.”

I would not hesitate to recommend MKB Law and in particular Amy Collins.”

“I was extremely happy with the service from Suzanne Keenan at MKB Law. From 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 team checking up and giving me pointers to look out for. Everything was handled professionally and in a timely manner.”

Mr L – April 2020

“I was five months pregnant when I found myself fired for unfounded gross misconduct. I knew that I needed the best people in my corner to fight this injustice with me – Suzanne Keenan was my guiding light. I cannot thank her enough for fighting and winning my case. The way she believed in this case and the professional manner in which she handled the Tribunal Hearing, is the reason why we got what we received and deserved. This whole process was about justice for me, my baby, and all women who are discriminated against in the workplace. I will forever wear the emotional scars that came with this experience but now I have a great and fair ending to a very dark time in my life.”

Winnie van der Merwe – April 2019

“I will forever be grateful that Suzanne Keenan was my legal representative for what was a very complex and emotionally difficult case. Suzanne held me together in a very professional and tactful way, and was always very open, honest and approachable around even sensitive issues. Suzanne’s expertise in sexual harassment, bullying, victimisation and employment law is commendable. She was able to predict and negotiate the best possible outcome for all parties involved. If anyone needs legal assistance on an employment matter my advice would be to go immediately to Suzanne at MKB Law.”

Mr P – Feb 2019

“I came into your offices laden down with stress and could not see a clear path through my employment issue. Thankfully I was introduced to Suzanne Keenan who after one appointment understood the details of my case and got in to action straight away. A truly efficient, professional experience; Suzanne has such a great way of cutting to the chase and getting the best outcome. I couldn’t be happier with the result and highly recommend MKB Law.”

Ms G – April 2018

“I contacted Suzanne Keenan in relation to a complex and serious employment matter. Suzanne is the most competent and thorough solicitor I have ever dealt with. She mixes compassion with professionalism and pragmatism. With Suzanne’s help, I achieved what was the best outcome for me in my circumstances. She was always easy to get in touch with and responded quickly to every call and query which in itself did much to allay the intrinsic anxiety of the whole process. Suzanne is a fearless and tough negotiator when the situation demands.”

Ms T – July 2017

“My experience with MKB has been fantastic. Karen Edwards listened to my complex situation and assured me that she would do everything they could to meet my expectations. Anytime a difficult stage of the process came up, Karen was available to help out. The whole process was handled extremely professionally. This helped me through a very difficult and stressful situation, and left both me and my ex-partner being able to stay on good terms. Thanks to those who also helped, Aine Toner in the Family team, and Emma Smyth in the Property team who dealt with the mortgage/deeds side of things. I cannot express how happy I am with everything that MKB Law has done for me.”

Mr J – Oct 2020

“I switched to MKB Law as I wasn’t getting anywhere with my previous solicitor in my matrimonial case and I’m so glad I did! My case was given 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.”

Gary Rice – July 2020

“I honestly can’t recommend Aine Toner enough. She was very professional and on top of everything throughout my case. This made the whole situation less of a struggle for me. Couldn’t have asked for a better Solicitor – thanks Aine.”

Stephen Steele – March 2020

“To Karen Edwards, I want to thank you for the hard work you have put into my case. You never lost faith of how the outcome was going to be.

Ms S – March 2020

“I was impressed with the professionalism, knowledge and ability shown by all members of the Family Law team at MKB Law.

Mr M – Feb 2020

“I had contacted several solicitors in Belfast before deciding to use MKB Law simply because Karen Edwards took the time to listen, and gave sound and realistic advice. Karen was responsive and professional in all aspects of my case. I am very happy that contact with my daughter has increased and our relationship has flourished because of everyone’s hard work and dedication. I will continue to recommend Karen and MKB Law to others in a similar situation.”

Mr W – May 2019

“I didn’t know what to do or who to turn to for help in getting contact with my son. I had never had a solicitor before but my whole journey with the Family Law team at MKB Law, from initial appointment to all the court dates and the case finally being settled, I felt so comfortable and at ease. For the first time I felt someone was in my corner. I am forever thankful to the team, and as I write this, my son is asleep in the next room – something which this time a year ago was just a dream.”

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.”

Mr M – Oct 2018

“Thank you Anne Marie Kelly for your help and support during my case. 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. You were always honest with me and kept my expectations realistic. You steadily and sensitively guided me through everything. While it will take time to get over this, it helps to have secured a fair and generous settlement which will give myself and my children financial security in the years to come. Thank you again, I will always appreciate your help and kindness. ”

Ms T – Oct 2018

“To Anne Marie Kelly – from the moment I stepped into the your office I knew I had made the right choice. I was made to feel at ease and assured that my priorities would be at the forefront. This approach was completely in line with your company’s advertising and gave me confidence that I had chosen my representation well. Thank you for helping me through a difficult and often overwhelming process. You may say ‘this is what we do’ – but I now feel in a much better place and can start thinking about the future.”

Mr D – Feb 2017
