About Us

IMG_1848bw (1)
Jonathan Dunphy & Company is a thriving solicitor’s practice which has grown from strength to strength since its establishment in 2005. Its founder, Jonathan Dunphy, leads the firm’s activities today in Dublin with offices in Dun Laoghaire and Dublin city centre.

The firm specialises in litigation – criminal, civil and commercial and is currently acting in some of the most high profile cases this country has ever seen. The firm’s reputation for excellence and professionalism in providing legal advice to private and commercial clients has been recognised from its early start up days in 2005 and last year was nominated for those achievements in the Irish Law Awards.

We strive to provide our clients with personalised service, professional tailored advice and support through what can be a most stressful period of a person’s life – the Courts Procedure. In addition to our own dedicated team of lawyers and consultants, we also engage the services of the most experienced and successful barristers in this country. We deal with a wide variety of cases both on a private basis and also in matters where legal aid has been assigned by the State. We also retain the expert services of forensic accountants, psychiatrists, engineers and scientists both here and abroad when a case so requires it.

Our managing partner, Jonathan Dunphy, graduated from University College Dublin with a Bachelor of Business & Legal Studies Degree. Jonathan was then admitted to the Roll of Solicitors in Ireland in 2002 after training with two of Dublin’s largest and most successful commercial law firms. Upon qualification he worked in Garrett Sheehan & Partners as a solicitor advocate before setting up his own practice in 2005. Jonathan recently added to his portfolio of qualifications by obtaining honours results in the ‘Advanced Diploma in Corporate, Whitecollar and Regulatory Crime’ course in the King’s Inns. The firm’s name has become synomous with litigation cases in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin and beyond. As a result of this success, we now operate in every Dublin city centre and suburban court, including the District, Circuit, High and Supreme Court.

We successfully campaigned with colleagues in 2014 to ensure that the suburban District Courts remained open for business to allow our communities to continue accessing the courts services locally. We continue to represent colleague’s interests and Jonathan Dunphy is now the Chair of the DSBA Criminal Law Committee for 2015 and a member of the Law Society of Ireland.

Our Consultant, Nicola Dunphy, graduated from University College Dublin with a Bachelor of Arts Degree.
