Hello and welcome to our website.

With 50 + combined years of experience in legal practice in Kildare and Dublin we are delighted to be assisting our clients locally, here in Ireland and abroad, in finding legal solutions. We are passionate about solving legal problems for our clients.

Anne Kelly studied English at UCD achieving a Bachelor of Arts in 1988. She qualified as a Solicitor in 1992 and received a Diploma in Property Tax in 1995. She has been the Principal Solicitor at Paul Kelly and Company Solicitors since 1988 until December 2022 when the new Practice of Kelly Hoban Solicitors LLP was founded. Anne has wide ranging experience in general practice with a particular interest in Conveyancing both residential and commercial, probate and wills and Enduring Powers of Attorney.

Joanne Hoban qualified in Easter 2001 having spent some very memorable years as a Trainee in the Practice of Frank Ward and Company Solicitors. Joanne did not stray far from her origins on Dublin’s North Quays until December 2021 when she made a return to her hometown of Leixlip to be close to her client base and of course her family.

We both enjoy working closely and personally with our clients and providing a service that our clients can trust. We aim to build long lasting relationships with our clients.

Our secret is that your friends, family, or colleagues will recommend us.
