Defamation

We understand that false accusations which are either said or printed about you, your family members or your business, can be very traumatic which may lead to loss of respect in the eyes of common people. Such actions may also lead to loss of financial or career opportunities.

Defamation can be defined when an intentional untrue utterance is published (communicated to/heard/read by a third party) which tends to low down one’s reputation, or creates a negative image of the subject about whom it is directed, in the eyes of right-thinking people.

Defamation can be written statements, known as libel, and spoken statements known as slander and can occur in a number of different circumstances for example:

  • Publications of a post or articles on the internet, Facebook, twitter or on online or offline blogs
  • Statements made either on TV or Radio
  • Statements or claims made in a physical or virtual magazine or newspaper

 

Other examples of defamation are as following:

  • Wrongfully/Falsely accusing someone for purchasing goods with counterfeit notes
  • Wrongfully/Falsely accusing someone of shoplifting
  • Wrongfully/Falsely accusing someone of leaving a restaurant without paying
  • Wrongfully/Falsely accusing someone not paying services

 

Whatever are the consequences of defamation for you, it can be extremely harmful and distressing and can cause you a serious mental distress. A hardly earned good reputation which can take long to build, yet one malicious comment can all it takes to destroy your years of hard work. You are legally entitled to pursue a Defamation case in Ireland if there is any malicious comment, accusation or campaign against you in Ireland in one of the above ways.

You can seek various remedies and relief, including:

  • A retraction of the statement
  • A public apology
  • Compensation to cover your financial loses
  • Personal injury claim for psychological distress

 

These are the following defences available in defamation cases:

  • Consent
  • Truth
  • Privilege
  • Qualified Privilege
  • Innocent publication
  • Honest Opinion
  • Fair and reasonable publication on a matter of public interest
  • Offer of Amends
  • Apology

Family Law

We understand that a marriage break up is an extremely emotional and stressful experience especially where children are involved. Family law is different from other areas of law. These emotions inevitably impact on the decision making process of the parties. Often the financial settlement is the easiest aspect of the break-up to resolve.

When marriage first breaks down many couples informally separate and live apart. Marital breakdown affects all areas of a person’s life, and most people go on to regulate matters between them in a formal legal way.


There are three different ways of doing this in Ireland:

  • Separation Agreement
  • Judicial Separation
  • Divorce


Our aim is to guide the parties through the process with as little stress as possible and to attempt to finalise the financial aspects of the matter without going to court.


Where conflict is inevitable we have the resources to meet contentious cases head on and to fully defend and protect the interests of our clients. We operate with the utmost discretion, sensitivity and confidentiality.


We also act to protect the interests of civil partners and unregistered cohabitants.

Personal Injury & Medical Negligence

When contacting your solicitor you should arrange a full consultation in order to go through the events in detail. 

Following from this the Injuries Board will contact the intended Defendant and ask them if they will consent to them making an assessment of compensation. If they refuse, then the Injuries Board will send to the injured party an ‘authorisation’- this is a formal document that allows the party to commence court proceedings.


If the Defendant consents to an authorisation being made, then the Injuries Board will assess the claim and arrive at what they deem an appropriate amount of compensation. They send this assessment to both sides.


If both sides agree to the valuation then the Injuries Board will issue an ‘Order to Pay’ to the Defendant, which the Defendant will have to comply with. However if either party rejects the assessment, the Injuries Board will issue to the injured party an authorisation and close the file on the matter.

In order to proceed with a claim in court the solicitor will have to value your claim. Your value attributed to your claim will decide which court the claim will be made in.

After a court date is set it is often the case that the matter is settled before the case goes ahead. Through your solicitor negotiations will be held. A settlement sum may be offered by the defendant at this stage. We will be there to inform you of the likely outcome should your matter go to court and whether you should consider the settlement offer.

If settlement talks fail to end the dispute a full hearing will be set. During the course of the hearing each side will be represented by barristers. 

Any awards of compensation made by the Courts are divided into two separate categories: special damages and general damages
