About Us

Neil Twomey & Co. Solicitors commenced practice in 1985 and initially operated from offices in Chapel Street, Lismore, Co. Waterford. The firm then moved to its current premises at Fernville, Lismore in 1989. There is a satellite office at Main Street, Cappoquin, Co. Waterford, presently unstaffed, which is used for the purpose of meeting clients by appointment who cannot manage to call to the Lismore office. This firm provides a comprehensive service as it is the only legal practice in Lismore and Cappoquin. We have a commitment to maintaining a high level of professional and efficient service with a personal touch.
