Testimonials

Moving into a new office at a time of growth in our business is a great opportunity, but of course it comes with practical and legal challenges which need to be handled carefully. As a long-term client of Barr Ellison, they were once again my first choice to help. Sophie took care of our lease negotiations, statutory declarations, stamp duty forms, building regulations paperwork for the building changes we wanted, and much more behind the scenes. She made sure that there were no surprises hiding in the paperwork. Instead of getting lost in the legal process, I could focus my effort on the important practical choices and plans for the coming year, and now the lease is complete we can continue to grow our company without any unexpected legal problems in our new office.

Mr Michael Wells, Founder & Managing Director, Third Light Limited

“Many, many thanks for achieving this, Karen. I never thought the divorce would be settled without going back to court. Thank you for your wise advice and support. I would recommend you without hesitation.”

Jenny Chapman, Cambridge

My sincere thanks to Sarah Payne for your support and excellent advice. I am very pleased with the way you helped me resolve this dispute.

Pauline Joslin, Cambridgeshire

Thank you Luck for the work you have done on my sister’s estate. You explained procedures clearly and I appreciated this.

Mrs Sheila Gunn, Cambridge

Excellent communication and helpful advice - easy to contact and if in a meeting would always phone back promptly - we were completely satisfied.

Dr Gordon Campbell, Cambridge

I cannot praise Barr Ellison's personal injury team too highly. I would without any hesitation recommend their personal injury service to any prospective client. I always felt that we received a very supportive and personal service and were treated with a great deal of respect. The overall level of service was excellent. We were kept informed on a regular basis by email, letter, telephone conversation and face to face meetings. The firm appointed independent, professional experts to offer specialist advice and testimony on matters relating to the case. The advice was totally relevant and went a long way in achieving a satisfactory end to proceedings. Emma Truin was completely professional in the way she handled the case. She was friendly, approachable and always available to answer questions. She provided constant reassurance and was very knowledgeable on legal matters and throughout proceedings Emma dealt with matters promptly and efficiently. She instilled trust and confidence in all our dealings.

Graham Cook

Thank you Karen Anker for your professionalism, your patience, your efficiency and your expertise over the last eight or so months. The thing I appreciated from our first meeting and why I was confident when instructing you was that you'd tell me straight what the situation was and what was realistic within the law and our situation rather than telling me what I might want to hear or sugar-coat it, and that continued right the way through the trickier times of negotiation. I probably cost myself a few hundred pounds more asking all my questions and trying to think through all the possibilities(!), but it was worth it to get something I'm comfortable with and you explained things and guided me through the whole process brilliantly.

Mr Gibbons, Ely

I'd like to express my appreciation for your work - thank you for your diligence and haste in bringing my house purchase to completion.

Matthew Turner, Cambridge

Money surely cannot replace the loss but Robert Curry's help in our personal injury case has been crucial and has ensured not only our father's comfort but also the security and stability of the whole family.

Thank you for all your calm, patient, sensible efficiency. I am positive you significantly reduced the potential stressors in buying a house. Obviously we will be highly recommending Barr Ellison. Thank you so very, very much.

Dr L Green, Cambridge

It has been a thoroughly positive experience working with you, Stephen [Bottle], and the rest of the commercial property team. I will be using Barr Ellison Solicitors again.

Paul Casey

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.

Laszlo Hegyi, Denmark

I would always want Sarah Payne in my corner in any dispute. Her decisive approach was a great help at a difficult time. Sarah was also very approachable and made discussion easy. Worth every penny!

Sarah Briggs

We were very pleased with the service we received and especially impressed with the way Sarah Payne got to grips with a complicated situation and outlined it very clearly so that we knew she understood it. Money well spent! Thank you.

Jane Grimes

Thank you Sarah [Payne] for all your work and support on this case. I found your advice pragmatic, robust and understandable. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others seeking litigation advice.

Tessa Corr, London

We were very pleased with the employment service provided by Barr Ellison Solicitors and the favourable outcome of the case for us.

Jim Hardingham, Cambridge Joinery Limited

Daryl took on Gerry’s case and guided me quietly and kindly through the process we were to follow, all the way up to 4 June 2014 when he rang to tell us our claim had been settled. Gerry has benefitted from an excellent package of care – to the point of near restoration to the man he was. Thanks to Daryl’s hard work we have ended up with a settlement beyond all our expectations. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your firm to anyone in a similar situation and I am extremely grateful to the person who signposted me to you in those early days. It was also a big plus for me to be able to fit in visits to your office around my long hours at the bedside at Addenbrooke's.

Corinne Rowley, Norfolk

I have been using Barr Ellison Solicitors since 1954 and I am very satisfied with the service I have received over the years.

Mrs P Chambers

Thank you Sarah Payne and all your team for the help and the guidance throughout this litigation. I received more than I expected which will really help my life and business. I wish there were stronger, more meaningful words than ‘thank you’.

We cannot thank you enough, Sarah. In addition to fierce efficiency, you never failed to be concise, helpful and extremely thoughtful.

Julia Mart

Thank you for all your hard work on this case, Daryl [Robinson].

I really appreciated your help and guidance throughout my personal injury claim. I always felt confident that it was being dealt with properly and it was reassuring to leave it to you and your team and not worry about finer details. It is nice to get a good resolution to this business.

Mark Hudson, Cambridge

It is almost 2 years since my accident, Jackie, and I wanted to thank you for all your hard work which was thorough and diligent. I would and will recommend you to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer.

John Wadkin, Cambridge

Having settled my daughter’s case after 4½ long years, I have been most impressed by Daryl Robinson’s professionalism, compassion, patience, understanding and occasional humour despite the challenges faced with us residing half way across the world in Australia. Daryl’s ability to explain in layman’s terms the complexities of the legal process and associated terms have been exceptional. This has also supported me as my daughter Rachel’s litigation friend in making informed decisions in discussion with her.

Frances Sneddon, Australia

We have used Barr Ellison Solicitors for our house conveyancing ever since 1981. So have our parents. On our most recent sale we have again received excellent, professional service throughout.

Reverend Craddock, Welwyn Garden City

I thank Sarah Payne for her no-nonsense, professional approach in recovering the monies owed. I was originally very pessimistic about the outcome.

Chris Haylock, Alliance Asbestos Services Ltd

Daryl Robinson has been fantastic throughout my claim. Knowing that I had someone this good in my corner while I was recovering from my injury was so reassuring. He fought hard for a good settlement, and secured compensation that I felt was fair. At the same time, he's very reassuring and calm, as well as efficient and well organised - all the things you need in a very stressful situation. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Dr Caroline Burt

You have been superb - very thorough, responsive and easy to work with. We will definitely recommend you and use your services again.

Barr Ellison Solicitors have been excellent in every respect.

Andrew and Angela Scott, Caldecote

I recently completed the purchase of a flat in London and wanted to express my formal appreciation for the way that Barr Ellison dealt with the case. The purchase turned out to be much longer and more complex than I had expected. They got back to me quickly on every query, large and small and kept me fully informed about the options available and the risks and consequences involved. Without this diligence, patience and calm attitude it is quite possible that I might have pulled out of the sale altogether. As it is, I couldn't be happier and I'm so pleased I decided to go with a local firm. Thanks to everyone involved in this transaction. I really appreciate it!

Sue Chadwick, Cambridge

Thank you so much to Luck Ooi for making the will process so simple. I particularly found your instructional video very helpful and easy to understand. Thank you also for the professional, kind and considerate way you have conducted yourself during this very stressful time in my life.

Andy Tofis, Royston

I was particularly pleased and impressed by the kind and caring manner in which I was dealt with by Mr Ooi.

Mr Michael Kirkup, Cambridge
