  • review rating 5  Justin provided me with legal council on behalf of Barrett and Co. I would highly recommend the initial consultation, as this helped outline the matter and provide me with possible options. Justin is personable, clear and concise and I would definitely recommend his services.

  • review rating 5  'I had no prior knowledge of this firm, until I telephoned the office based on Google reviews and with only a few days left prior to the case unfolding, the pressure was really on!! The approach of every staff member was gentle, caring and unusually courteous. I was terrified at the prospect of my chances, especially as the other side had considerable experience in court. Both Justin Sadler and Chris Miller were warm, sympathetic, calm and completely unperturbed; they immediately suggested a way forward and then recommended their choice of Counsel. I had my doubts and was like a rabbit in headlights; Chris carefully guided me through the process and kept me calm throughout. The result was an outright victory. An amazing result, delivered with care, attention and I was charged less than the amount of work actually delivered! A highly unusual firm of solicitors. Huge thanks to Chris/Justin.

  • review rating 5  I have recently used Barrett & Co to assist me with my divorce and can only say good words about the experience. Paul Wild especially not only provided reassuring advice, but his professionalism (and indeed, that of everyone at Barrett & Co) made me feel supported throughout the whole process, and left me with the feeling that he genuinely cared about my situation. The level of dedication displayed by not only Paul but also Richard Ince in the conveyancing team was top notch, in particular when turning work around within tight timescales, and keeping me appraised throughout so nothing came as a surprise. I will definitely use Barrett & Co for any legal needs in the future - very highly recommended!

  • review rating 5  Barrett & Co come highly recommended. I recently worked with Alan Warnes on a property sale that was very complicated due to changes in the lease, and dealing with difficult and lengthy queries from the buyer's solicitors, and Alan guided me expertly through the process. His tenacity, patience, legal expertise and good humour were greatly appreciated. I have used Barrett & Co's services for previous property purchases and sales, for declarations of trust, and one of the partners also became executor to my parent's estate several years ago. They are very professional, and also warm, friendly solicitors to work with. I would not hesitate to engage them again if the need arises.

  • review rating 5  I had Justin Sadler work with me, giving excellent advice and general support with a very difficult, complex case against an ex-business partner. Happy to say that I got a full settlement before going to court, as with that advice, I was in a very strong, empowered position to emphatically 'win' my case without incurring additional court costs!
