Joseph McCarthy Associate Solicitor
Joseph has been an integral member of our team since 2013, bringing a unique blend of expertise and dedication to his role. His specialisation lies in private client work, with a focus on conveyancing and probate.
In simpler terms, Joseph’s role involves assisting homeowners and prospective homeowners in their property buying or selling journeys. He also offers support in managing the affairs of deceased individuals, guiding next of kin and executors through every stage of the process from the moment of a person’s death. Additionally, Joseph provides assistance in will drafting, ensuring his clients have peace of mind for the future. Joseph also regularly assists clients in creating Enduring Powers of Attorney and advises clients and their families on how to manage circumstances where a person’s mental capacities may be impaired.
Joseph’s approach to legal practice is problem-solving oriented. If a client’s issue falls outside his area of specialism, he ensures they are connected with the right expert. This dedication to his clients’ needs makes him a trusted advisor and keeps him thoroughly engaged in his work.
Before turning to law, Joseph obtained a degree in applied psychology and gained valuable experience working in various roles in that field in the US.
Upon his return to Ireland, Joseph commenced his traineeship with the long-standing West Cork firm, Wolfe & Co. in Skibbereen in 2009. His exceptional performance continued during his training course at the Law Society of Ireland, where he and his teammate, Liam Crowley, clinched victory in the Irish Client Counselling Competition. They later represented Ireland in the International Client Counselling Competition in Hong Kong in 2010, reaching the semi-finals.
Joseph finds great fulfilment in his role at McCarthy + Co., particularly in helping clients navigate important life matters. His diverse background, commitment and client-focused approach are what make Joseph a valuable asset to our team. His journey from psychology to law has only enriched his perspective, enabling him to provide exceptional legal services to our clients.
