My Case is Complex

Often inexperienced claims companies attempt to undertake complex cases without having the experience or knowledge to handle them properly. The outcome of your claim could be very unsatisfactory or even disastrous if you fail to choose an experienced firm of professional lawyers.

Experienced Lawyers
Insurance companies have huge resources at their disposal to defend claims and only hire experienced lawyers to represent their interests. You too are entitled to expert representation.

David Synnott (the brother of the late Alan Synnott) is the senior partner and founder of DJ Synnott, now Synnott Lawline. He has been practicing law for more than 30 years, fifteen of which have been dedicated exclusively to personal injury.

Lawline was founded by the late Alan Synnott in 1994. Lawline was one of the first firms of Solicitors in Ireland to specialise in personal injury law and from the outset the firm dealt exclusively in the handling of personal injury compensation claims. David and Alan recognised their firms could achieve a standard of excellence second to none and thus delivered legal services of the highest quality to clients since.
Tragically, Alan passed away in 2003 at aged only 44 and so Lawline was taken over at that point by Alan’s brother David, himself a dedicated personal injury Solicitor, and the firm continues to prosper under David’s stewardship.
