Serving Northern Ireland for almost 50 years

A Trusted Legacy of Excellence and Commitment.

Growing from firm foundations

For close on 50 years McConnell Kelly has been serving communities across northern Ireland. We have now become one of Northern Ireland's go-to law firms and we’re very excited about the journey ahead, as we gear up to offer new and valuable services to our clients.

Our story began over three decades ago we opened our first office on Comber Road, Dundonald. Since then, we’ve expanded with offices across wider Belfast and Bangor.

Local people serving local communities

From East Belfast and North Down, our reach now spans all of Northern Ireland, with our solicitors appearing in courtrooms from Belfast to Dungannon, Coleraine to Omagh. We’re extremely proud of the trusted reputation we’ve earned over the years within in the communities we serve and beyond.

Our roots are in criminal defence and litigation, but over the years we’ve expanded into conveyancing, probate, family law, judicial reviews, and human rights law.
We believe the secret to our success lies in a down-to-earth, professional approach to our work, our reputation for securing the best possible outcomes and for personal reassurance whenever you need it most.

Our motto remains "Local. Trusted. On Your Side." These values will guide us on our mission to provide the best possible legal resource for our local communities in East Belfast, North Down, and beyond in the years to come.

We appreciate the support from all of our clients over the years and are proud to be apart of your communities.
