    Maybe, the practice seems to support local GAA.

    What sort of QA procedures are in place to detect improper conduct? How many cases are reviewed a year and is there any process of random review and review of cases where there has been an expression of concern? Surveillance and enforcement have to be toughened up - that much is clear.

    But not only that, I'm amazed that it's not a crime that should mean jail time. And I bet we don't know the half of it. What else was covered over, people dead, estates long distributed etc.
    You’d think that every single case this person was ever involved with would be under review as a matter of urgency.

    One would have thought someone who was a solicitor and involved with FF would be a red flag anywhere.

    Hasn’t to date.

    Lynn was struck off long before being extradited home.

    Thomas Byrne was struck off in 2008 and only tried in 2012.

    Sticking off is a civil procedure whereas criminal proceedings are entirely separate.

    There’s a complaints process and solicitors have to produce audited accounts each year and can be subject to further audit by the Law Society

    Here’s another solicitor who is not stealing and is not struck off, he’s only overcharging in the multi thousands, minor really when you think about it, and this is only in relation to one client...

    Lawyer verbally abused his former client who challenged him for overcharging by €650,000 - Independent.ie

    ... So one can understand why the law society is doing nada

    Mr O’Callaghan’s case was back before the president of the High Court, Mr Justice Peter Kelly, on Monday, for an update.


    So O'Callaghan's daugher is also a solicitor and she is now a manager of the solicitors practice. I wonder is Mr. Steen also related somehow.



    Declan is doing his level best to pay off all deficits so there will be no criminal proceedings against him, he will be back in before Judge Kelly in 3 weeks, hopefully Kelly will then have sorted matters out and will put the boot in to Declan, who really sounds like a proper FF toerag.


    If one looks at the Twitter account, lovely pics of Declan and his daughters and a press cutting of them defending a FF Councillor against "Ming" Flanagan.
