Paul Wild is the best solicitor you can wish for. I benefited from his crucial law experience and wisdom. Excellent customer service.
During the process of repossession proceedings against my tenant I felt reassured by the open and honest advice I received from Chris Miller. I was impressed by the efficient, professional and friendly service. I can highly recommend this company.
I had a very delicate but deeply personal matter that I needed professional legal help with.in short it involved a matter of my father's will,inheritance and money owed to me from a sibling.After much research I contacted Justin at Barrett and co.After an hours consultation with him and Hilary Buckle I gained the confidence to take further steps.it was in their mannerism and approach and they even gave me a written quote detailing exactly what stage they would charge me for ,and even this quote was much lower than other specialst solicitors .They were so considerate with me and their reputation so high that my sister instantly gave me large sum of money owed to me and as a bonus all siblings have begun mending our relationship.
I used Barrett and Co for my will via the Will Aid scheme. They were very professional, efficient and friendly. They took time to explain things simply and effectively - offering advice on the implications of different scenarios and ensuring I 'future proofed' my will. Very pleased with the service all round. Charlotte Fox was excellent.
Very professional and extremely thoughtful. We choose to complete our Wills through Barrett and Co twice, and both times they have made it a simple and efficient service. We would highly recommend.
Upon needing some much needed employment related legal advice I was very lucky to come across Barrett and Co. The whole process was fluid, simple, yet professional right through from my initial enquiry to leaving the office happy and eased of mind. I would highly recommend Barrett and Co to anyone that requires legal advice of any nature; my particular case, whilst not overly complicated, regardless left me wanting reassurance and security. A quick call, appointment booking, and a 1 hour meeting with Justin later provided me with both.
I found Barrett & Co via a search on Will Aid 2019 and was lucky enough to get an appointment with Vanessa Ruparel, one of the Solicitors. The whole process of getting our wills done was very smooth and professional. Service was of high quality and very friendly. I would certainly recommend Barrett & Co. Many thanks Vannessa 🙂
I found Justin Sadler and his support team very knowledgeable, and they supported us very professionally through our case. They not only had the right legal and procedural knowledge but also the practical experience of handling cases to guide us through a difficult process. Well recommended.
