I just wanted to say how happy we were with the service Keith provided when we were changing our mortgage earlier this year. Keith’s efforts were of the highest standard. He was extremely fast, helpful and professional in his approach. Things were getting tight because of interest rate deadlines and Keith really helped to get it over the line. This will save us a lot of money over the course of the 7 year fixed term. I would highly recommend PKHL to anyone considering moving house or remortgaging their home.

Poe Kiely Hogan Lanigan has worked with us on a number of different matters, particularly commercial contracts and property matters. They tend to have specialists in each area which means we get the benefit of a very high level of expertise. We find them very responsive to our requirements, they quickly understand what has to be done and deliver the outcomes we need without delay. We value their assistance highly, and I would not hesitate to give them my recommendation.
