P. Cheung Co. Clare
When our mother R.I.P. died my brother and I were appointed executors of her will. The administration of the estate was handled by Sharon Cahir and her staff in a calm professional manner which meant so much to us at a traumatic time. I was so impressed I have since moved my business to Cahir & Co. Solicitors and I would recommend them to anyone needing such services.
