Ms Habbick of Cambridge
Karen Anker at Barr Ellison was superb - knowledgeable, supportive and able to provide strong leadership when needed. I highly recommend her.
Thank you for all your work Karen. I would have no hesitation in recommending your practice to other potential clients.
Mr Barker of Alton
I have been very happy with the service that you have provided to me in terms of advising and helping me to navigate through the unpleasant process of divorce. I have found your service to be helpful, friendly, straightforward, honest and non-provocative to my ex; I believe this has helped us to reach agreement and settlement as amicably as possible. I believe that you have charged fairly and openly for your time. I would very gladly recommend your services to anybody finding themselves in need.
Thank you so much for your help. You were very efficient and easy to talk with. The service provided was excellent and very professional and understanding. Most important was your patience.
I am so pleased to have finally reached a marital financial resolution which is entirely due to the patience and efficiency of Silvia. She is so easy to work with and from our first meeting she listened to all my concerns, came up with a plan and gave me support and advice when I felt I was treading water. Her positive attitude is exactly what I needed and huge thanks to her for acting so quickly with all lines of communication along the way. Now we are at the end, I cannot thank her and Barr Ellison enough, and would recommend them to anyone!
I found it a very good experience working with you, Karen, and I appreciated your manner in handling the issues that, frankly, I didn’t really want to deal with. You made it all very easy.
Mr Guyer of Cambridge
Thank you for all your help, Karen. I have been very conscious of you diligently pushing me forward in a world of corporate and childcare chaos my end (and I am deeply grateful). Thank you also for words of reason when my patience ran thin with my husband and his own solicitor.
Ms Denton of Braintree
