Like many people I only have rare occasions to visit a solicitor, which can be daunting due to preconceptions and the unforeseen nature of the visit. However, when I spoke with Justin Sadler on an employment issue he was very quick to gauge what my requirements were and was able to adjust his explanation of legal documents to a level I was comfortable with. His quick grasp of the situation and legal knowledge meant that in the limited time we had he could concentrate on the pertinent areas and I came away with a much improved understanding of the issue. I was also very grateful to Justin for putting some real world context around the situation. This really helped tie the legal situation to the reality along with some practical advice that not only gave me understanding of how flexible the process was but also kept potential costs to a minimum. I would recommend Barrett and Co for their practical approach and openness in their dealings. They are definitely there to support you as their client rather than just do the legal bit.
Justin Sadler supported me through the process of agreeing a compromise / settlement agreement with my employer. He was very understanding both of my position and of what the legal position was. He asked lots of questions to make sure he understood the fact pattern and then put my case forward to get the best deal possible. I was very happy with the overall outcome and the significantly increased offer we received from the employer. I would happily use Justin again and would recommend the use of him and his team.
I would without any doubt recommend Paul Wild. Paul has been amazing in recently dealing with my separation deed. Paul is very helpful and understanding. I can honestly say it’s so nice to deal with someone who genuinely cares about your situation. In my opinion Paul goes above and beyond to make sure everything goes smoothly.
Highly recommended solicitors. Our experience of using Barrett and Co has been very positive, responses have always been on time and informative. We won't hesitate to use again should we need to.
When I needed fast and proficient advice for my redundancy package. I contacted Barrett and Co. I was not disappointed. I was seen the same day, just 2 hours after making a call to them. I was treated well and felt confident in their ability to handle my case. They fought for my rights and ensured I was given what I was due which was actually more than I was offered by my company (many thanks Mr Sadler). I can fully recommend this solicitors and I will be using them again in the future should I need any legal advice. Would recommend strongly.
