Probate Genealogy – Three research services every solicitor needs to know about

September 27th, 2019|

As a firm set up to assist solicitors and the Irish legal profession, we regularly come across different cases and scenarios where help is needed, but either the client or the solicitor are unsure where to turn.

It gives us great pleasure to officially open the new offices of Erin Research, a boutique probate research firm servicing the Irish legal profession. We would crack the champagne off the wall, if the landlord would let us! Erin Research was borne out of three areas of thought.
