Kelsey Hamann
BA LLB (UP)
Attorney, Conveyancer

While we now know that Kelsey was employed at O’Hagan Attorneys by lying shamelessly about her sporting skills and baking prowess, there is no doubt about her ability as an attorney and conveyancer (impressive) or her contribution to the social fabric of the firm (profound). Kelsey’s greatest achievement is making a 30 minute malva pudding in 20 minutes.

Think small, innovative, family-orientated and devoted to doing what we do best. Would you ever imagine describing your lawyers like that? Well, our belief is that lawyers are generally boring, out-of-date and match the general stereotypes of sharks and therefore we built our firm on the complete opposite of the general perception.

Our firm started in 2007 when Sean and Sharon O’Hagan travelled to China for a family holiday.

Sean was on the precipice of retiring as a legal advisor from one of the largest banks. He was unwilling to give up work just yet as he had so much to offer and most importantly did not want to leave long-standing clients in the lurch.
Sharon was tired of toiling for a nameless, faceless, large firm and wanted a fresh start where clients came first and were not considered mince for the sausage machine.

After a glass or two of red wine (or probably the Chinese equivalent) the two agreed that it was time to wow the public and start something completely foreign in the legal realm - a law firm based on family-values. It was (and still is) their aim to protect the interests of their clients and to solve legal dilemmas before their clients sustained a heart attack from excessive legal fees and wasted time in courts. We class ourselves as preventative lawyers who solve legal conundrums before they become problems.

... and so the firm began in a tiny office in Lonehill. Thankfully we have expanded since those days and have employed a number of new staff members who are dubbed honorary “O’Hagan” family members. We have also embraced more clients who we consider friends and family.
