Colin O’Kane Solicitor

About Colin

I am a Partner at McGee O’Kane Solicitors.

Throughout my career I have specialised primarily in Family Law & Social Services Cases, Divorce Law & Matrimonial, and Criminal Law.

I act on behalf of people who have had their children taken into care, disputes about child contact between parents, couples who are divorcing or separating. I can help with any family law or matrimonial problem that can arise.

I also assist those with criminal law problems and attend the Police Station and Courts defending people accused of criminal offences.

I enjoy all aspects of the work no matter how challenging or difficult. I have gained a wealth of experience in these areas and get a great deal of satisfaction in helping client’s with issues that are very often life changing and extremely challenging.

It is easy to arrange a Free Consultation with me. You can either have a face-to-face consultation or book a phone call. Just  call on 028 71 229 343 or email:

Client Review:- “Colin O’Kane Solicitor gave me advice about contact with my children. I cannot recommend him highly enough, the advice and service was excellent.”

Best Part Of The Job?

I really enjoy getting good results for families, particularly when statutory agencies (such as Social Services) are involved.

It is very easy for the client to feel that the deck is stacked against them (and it often is) but with good advice and pro-active representation the balance can often be restored and a positive outcome achieved.

Education & Professional Memberships

I graduated from the University of Ulster with an LLB (Hons) in Law and Criminology. After finishing University I trained as a Solicitor with a Firm in Omagh and then at Hasson & Co before opening McGee O’Kane Solicitors with Michael McGee.
