We (O’Hara Solicitors) are a UK Law Firm situated in Waterlooville, Hampshire – offering a broad spectrum of legal services tailored to both businesses and individuals.

Established on the 1st April 1975, we are a family run practice, with a strong commitment to delivering high quality, cost effective legal advice to all our clients. We’ve established ourselves as a leading law firm, with in depth specialist knowledge across Conveyancing Private Client Litigation. In 1996 we incorporated the well-known and long standing practice of Rice Scholes and Blake, which helped broaden our range of legal services and offerings to our clients.

Our dedicated team of staff and bespoke developed systems ensures a highly competitive and cost effective service at all times. We are also very proud of our “personal” touch, ensuring at all times you speak directly with a representative and not directed through to voicemails or other automated services. When you telephone you will speak with a person not a machine.

Our clientele is drawn not just from the public at large but also nationwide and range from major institutional lenders to high street mortgage introducers, as well as both independent and national estate agents.

O’Hara Solicitors is Authorised and Regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Further details are available in the Code of Conduct.
