Avril obtained a Degree in Law from University of Wales (Portobello College) and holds a Masters in Law degree from Trinity College Dublin. During her Masters Avril focused on Alternative Dispute Resolution and Restitution and her thesis was entitled “Status of Fathers in Irish Law”.

Mr. & Mrs. M, Co Dublin

I approached Avril Mangan for legal advice at a time when I was extremely vulnerable and totally at a loss as how to deal with a very difficult situation. In her I found a very able solicitor, a consummate professional, a person I could, and did, totally trust and rely on. Her advice always pointed me in the right direction and I am so thankful for having made that initial phone call to her. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Avril to any person in need of legal help. Her work ethic is exemplary and a reflection of the truly honourable person she has shown herself to be in all of my dealings with her.

CMcG, Portmarnock, Co Dublin

I am extremely grateful to you for the very efficient and professional manner in which you dealt with my recent separation. Your attention to detail was excellent leaving no questions unanswered.
You were at all times kind, considerate and extremely prompt in dealing with all correspondence and queries. You were always available to me whenever I needed your help and advice.
Should I ever require a solicitor in the future, I will have no hesitation in contacting you and I will have no hesitation in recommending your service to others.

SM, Dublin.

Avril many thanks for handling my divorce so efficiently and competently and with great ease and understanding. You were always available and accommodating to me and made the whole process very easy. If and when I need a family law solicitor I shall be back to your good self. Many thanks again.
