This video gives a brief overview of our services

WE HAVE WORKED ON SOME EXTREMELY COMPLEX CASES, WHERE IT SEEMED NO NEXT OF KIN EXISTED…

Our experience tells us that in many cases solicitors and/or their clients will attempt to trace entitled family members of a deceased person. This can be time-consuming, costly, and counter-productive.

In many cases, our work can be carried out free of charge, meaning we take on all the risk involved, while allowing you to focus on other more productive areas of  your work.

We have experienced on many occasions where executors or solicitors have advised that there were “no next-of-kin”, only for us to identify and locate entitled relatives.

Let the experts help, so that you can rest assured that you are administering and distributing the estate accurately.

Testimonials

“Erin Research delivered a prompt, efficient and comprehensive solution in a probate matter that involved a Will with a partial intestacy and beneficiaries in three countries across two continents – a real mess!

Padraic Grennan and Erin Research were introduced to me by an experienced probate solicitor to tackle a complex tracing issue that arose as a result of many unknown beneficiaries combined with a partial intestacy. He provided both a detailed family tree as well as a narrative guide showing the distribution of the Estate under the Will and the partial intestacy. This made the distribution of the Estate calculations among the 25 beneficiaries much easier and straightforward. He was also invaluable in assisting in managing the administrative aspects of the distribution including dealing with Social Welfare, Revenue and the Probate Office.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Padraic or his firm Erin Research to both practitioners and lay applicants.”

Paul Dempsey, Retired Barrister-at-Law

Erin Research were able to find relatives of my deceased client in the United States who were entitled to a share of his estate. They provided me with a genealogy report to prove the family relationship which allowed me to finish and close a file that had been sitting around for some time.
