CHALLENGING TIMES – We are here to help.

At McMahon & Williams we, like everyone else, are getting used to living through this Pandemic.  Things are a little different in our office now, with the introduction of social distancing measures.   We are glad to say that we are continuing to meet our clients, but by appointment only.  With the new guidelines in relation to the wearing of masks, we are asking all of our clients and visitors to the office to please wear a mask, this is to protect you and our staff.    We are doing our utmost to ensure that our clients and staff feel safe and protected.

Since the pandemic started, we have noted an increase in clients wishing to make a Will or also, which can be more important, updating their Wills.  We have also noted an increase in clients making Enduring Powers of Attorney.   An Enduring Power of Attorney allows a person to make arrangements for how their affairs will be managed should they become mentally incapacitated, as a result of illness or an accident.    The person making the Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) can nominate either one or two people, whom they trust, to make decisions on their behalf in relation to their day to day living and assets.      Having an EPA completed gives a person peace of mind that should they not be in a position to deal with their affairs in the future they know that they have trusted individuals who will do so on their behalf.

Further information in relation to Enduring Powers of Attorney can be found here Enduring Powers of Attorney or if you have any queries or for the making of a Will please do not hesitate to contact us on 065 9051009 or info@mcmahonwilliams.ie.

Irish Law Awards Finalist 2019

McMahon & Williams Solicitors are honoured to be shortlisted as a Finalist in the 2019 Irish Law Awards under the category: Diversity & Inclusion Law Firm of the Year.

At McMahon & Williams Solicitors we believe in equality and inclusion and we value diversity in the workplace.  In 2007, the decision was taken that our existing offices in Frances Street were no longer fit for purpose in a time when we wanted our offices to be accessible to all people, both clients and staff.   Universal Design is the design and composition of an environment so that it can be accessed and used to the greatest extent possible by all people regardless of their age, size, ability and disability.  We wanted our office to be designed to meet the needs of all staff and clients.   We realised that there was no other office environment in Kilrush at the time that had an elevator.   We recognised that if our offices were accessible and convenient, both staff and clients would benefit.  By considering the diverse needs and abilities of all, we would create an environment that would meet everyone’s needs.

We recognise the importance of inclusion and diversity in the community and at McMahon & Williams Solicitors we would like to be leaders in this field.  We are looking forward to attending the Irish Law Awards on Friday the 14th of June, wish us luck!
