Even apparently simple probate issues can turn out to be harder to sort out than expected. Just when I thought all the issues concerning my mother's estate had been resolved, an oversight by myself emerged. Despite the relatively modest sum involved, the third party looked set to play the "computer says no" game. Fortunately the intervention of Hilary and Vanessa quickly resolved the issue. It is when things don't go smoothly that one finds out the quality of your solicitors, and Barrett & Co did not let me down.

I recently appointed Justin to review documents relating to an employee settlement agreement. Justin was very professional, thorough and responsive to meet a tight deadline I would and have recommended Barrett and Co and Justin to others.

I live in Adelaide, South Australia and found Barrett and Co through the internet. I needed help with a matter in England.

The early advice and guidance from Nick and his colleagues, ensured I was well prepared for our one-hour online meeting. During this meeting, they addressed all my concerns and outlined the options available to me. This gave me the confidence, to make sound decisions as I move forward with my matter and happy in the knowledge that I can contact them again, should I require further advice.

I have the highest regard for their professionalism and the respectful way they dealt with me during our meeting, and I happily recommend them to anyone needing legal advice.

I recently used the services of Ms Vanessa Ruparel at Barrett and Co to prepare a Will on my behalf. She was extremely professional and also gave me some excellent practical advice. This enabled me to consider some alternative ways to deal with my estate and overcome some tricky issues that were concerning me, to ensure all my loved ones are adequately provided for. I am very pleased with the outcome which has been made possible through her much appreciated assistance.

Several years ago a close friend told me how highly he respected Hilary Buckle's caring advice and professionalism as a family solicitor. Since then, I have had the pleasure of dealing with Hilary at Barrett & Co with regard to both Lasting Powers of Attorney and also the redrafting of my Will, and have to say that her practical, down to earth approach was at all times a breath of fresh air, and gave me confidence that I had made the right decisions. My occasional contact with other members of the firm was also a pleasant experience at all times.

Used these guys when we bought our house as previous firm we used was useless. Imran was assigned to deal with us and I can happily say the level of professionalism we got from him and Barrett and Co was amazing. Imran kept us up to date with every little minor detail and step of the way. Recently I had to get in touch with Imran for some advice after the sale and he was more than happy to to out of his way to help me out. I will definitely be recommending Barrett and Co as well as Imran by anyone I know buying a property.

"We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your time, advice and recommendations. We found ourselves in a very unwelcome situation as we came to sell our first home. We have learnt a lot during the past twelve months and feel that we have reached a good resolution following guidance from you. You managed our expectations of the outcome realistically from our first meeting and offered clear information and direction throughout our correspondence. Many thanks and all the best"

"We covered an awful lot of ground in the initial fixed fee meeting regarding a boundary dispute. Many thanks for your time, advice and insights. I liked the way that you set out a gameplan and strategic objective and then explained all the tactical approaches available to achieve that objective. I was surprised at how many different threads I could follow up and delighted that they were all laid out so clearly and in terms that were easy for me to understand. Because it was a fixed fee meeting, I had come along with a sheet of background and questions to get the most out of our time. All my questions and more were answered with good detail. I feel a lot more confident and informed, with a clearer list of next steps."
