Ruairi Ó Ceallaigh, 42 and from Collegeland, Summerhill in Co Meath faces trial on seven charges of theft between 2006 and 2010.
He is the son of retired solicitor Sean Ó Ceallaigh, who founded the family law firm Sean Ó Ceallaigh and Company over 50 years ago in Phibsboro.
Detective Sergeant Paschal Walsh said he met the former solicitor by appointment on Thursday morning and when the charges were put to him he made no reply.
He is accused of seven charges of dishonestly appropriating or stealing money from client accounts at the firm.
Detective Walsh said the Director of Public Prosecutions had directed that he be tried before a jury.
At Dublin District Court on Thursday, there was no objection to bail on his own bond of €200 and an independent surety of €5000 which was put up by his father, who was in court.
His solicitor informed the court that he knew the charges were coming.
He was bailed until next month.
