About us

What makes us different as a solicitor’s practise is how we view our relationship with our clients.

At McKenna & Co Solicitors our clients are central. We are committed to supporting and serving our clients. We understand that our clients are just like us, ordinary people with real problems often simple sometimes complex.

We place our ethos and focus on our clients as individual people with real problems that we can help them solve. This ensures we get results for our clients that make a difference.

We have strong trustworthy and lasting relationships with our clients. We are hardworking and approachable lawyers. We treat all our clients as real people who deserve our courtesy and attention. We recognise that without our clients we have no practise.

We recognise that we cannot be all things to all people, but we can be all things to our clients.

We believe no problem is unsolvable with the right expert advice and help.
