Throughout the sale and purchase we have been entirely confident that our affairs were in first-class hands. In that respect you have indeed lived up to your top-drawer reputation, having been independently recommended to us both by our estate agent and, independently, by a neighbour involved in property development. We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending your services to others.

My very sincere thanks go to Helen Murphy for getting me through my recent sale/purchase. This was the second time Helen has acted for me and both times she was very professional, keeping me informed all the way. This recent sale proved a bit difficult because the first sale fell through in tragic circumstances for my intended buyer but I found a new buyer quickly and Helen got me through to completion within a month, which prevented me from losing the property I was buying. I cannot praise her highly enough.
May I say how much we appreciate all your work for us over the years, Helen. Your evident skill as well as your speedy responses are very reassuring!
Andrew Scott of Cambridge
Thank you to Helen Murphy for representing us in our first house purchase. You have kept us informed at all times and were very approachable. When things got chaotic, you handled it perfectly.
Thanks for the good news about the completion of my house sale. Instead of a simple thank you Helen [Murphy], I would like to underline how grateful I am to you and Barr Ellison for all your help, advice, guidance and patience.
A big thank you to Helen Murphy for all your help in this matter – particularly when things got a little hairy in October! As ever you’ve taken care of everything quickly and efficiently and have made it as easy as possible for us.
Mr and Mrs Fendius
I very much appreciate your help and steady support throughout such a stressful time when selling my house.
Mr B Lutoslawski
We were very lucky to meet Helen Murphy, who acted with legal brilliance and genuine kindness through a hugely stressful property purchase. We'd never consider anywhere else now.
Thank you so much Helen Murphy for your professionalism and efficiency in the conduct of our property sale. I am particularly grateful for keeping us up to date and informed of developments as they occurred. I would recommend the services of Barr Ellison Solicitors in general and you in particular to anyone!
Thanks Helen. You really are so different to other lawyers that I've met (in a good way!). You were so approachable and explained everything in plain English such that I understood all that was going on.
Mrs Browning, Cambridge
Helen, thank you! You really did go above and beyond!

I cannot praise the service provided by Helen Murphy highly enough when I purchased my new home.

Barr Ellison seems part of our family. My husband Richard had told me that Barr Ellison would take care of me and my son, and he was right. You guided me through everything with regard to my husband's estate, always making clear the choices open to us. Seema Solanki and Helen Murphy were so kind, approachable and trustworthy, they feel like sisters to me.
It's because of you that we've completed, completed in time and completed with the right legal basis - I can't thank you enough but will give you a call next week to try to do so.
Mark Johnston of Cambridge
Thank you very much for all your hard work. You made the whole process painless. It all went through much quicker and more smoothly than I could have hoped for.
Thank you very much to Helen Murphy and Emily Brisley for all their help and support, especially during the current difficult Covid circumstances. Excellent service.
Thank you! Having a lawyer like you has made a world of difference for us. I hope you and your colleagues enjoyed the chocolates.
You have been brilliant throughout. We were so glad to have had you as our lawyer for this matter.
