Solicitor Query Service

Are you a solicitor? Are you stuck on a probate query? Well, you have come to the right place.

No question is too short or too simple. You might need us to sense check an oath, or guide you through a foreign case. It might be a probate query with a property, tax or litigation element. We deal with them all. We ask you to fill out your query with as much detail as possible, attaching copies of your will, oath, grant etc or any other background document you think would be useful.

We offer a number of services.

The first is the general advice query. This is where you need some advice or need to sense check something but don’t need anything drafted for you. Fees for the advice service is €250 + VAT.

If you want us to do some drafting for us, then you can avail of our drafting and advice service. So you might want us to draft an oath for you, or a disclaimer or a renunciation. Our fees here are €375 + VAT.

We also offer a foreign grant pack service. This is where you have a probate with a foreign element. Normally in these cases we draft for solicitors the Oath, the Affidavit of laws and the appropriate power of attorney. Fees for this pack are €850 + VAT.

If the matter is more involved or requires taking over a case for you, or running a file or something more substantial that is no difficulty and we can discuss the best approach.

In exceptional circumstances we can assist a colleague for free. However this must be specifically requested by the solicitor. There may be a variety of reasons why a solicitor may request this, and we will examine each case on its merits and we will always try to help a colleague; particularly if there is a genuine reason why there should be no charge. We are here to help.

As you will appreciate from practice, a “quick answer” to “quick question” might take years in the making!

We won’t ask anymore to select which service you are going for. Just submit your query and we will let you know the charges before we deal with your query.

We ask you to agree to our terms and conditions. Please read these so you understand the nature of the service.

Looking forward to coming back to you soon!

Colm Team

We think we provide a great service, but don’t take our word for it.  Here is what some of your colleagues are saying.

“Most helpful. Very detailed with all the necessary information on extracting grants of Probate/Administration post and pre 2001. We also found his services to be very efficient with replies by return. His services are very inexpensive for the advice and service he provided.”

Butler Cunningham & Molony, Solicitors, Templemore, County Tipperary.

“Colm is an invaluable resource on all things probate, an area which is becoming more complex to manage particularly for a practitioner who does not deal with probate on a daily basis. He is the “go to person” for me to talk about an issue which is causing a concern or where I would simply need a steer in the right direction. I would recommend him highly for all your probate queries.”

Albert Wolfe, Solicitor, Access Credit Union Limited

“I recently engaged with Colm Kelly . . .he immediately responded to me and was very forthcoming with the information which I required…I find his collegiality and willingness to share information to be refreshing. I have no hesitation in recommending Colm and his practice.”

Karen O’Donovan, Solicitor, Kinsale
