Our Testimonials

In my child care case the service was exquisite. My solicitor was Ms Ann-Marie Whelan with the help of her assistant Ms Berfin Kaya. Their choice of the barrister to handle my case was very good, the advice I received was a class apart. If you need solicitors to help in your child care matter, I would 100% recommend, but be prepared to take the blunt advice. As humans we get emotional and always want to hear what we anticipate to hear rather than a few home truths.


Ernest C Tumuhairwe

This is a large company with lots of staff and I must say my experience was excellent. I used Nancy Mortemore at the Enfield office and as soon as you walk through the door you are put at ease by the incredibly friendly reception staff.Nancy dealt with a particularly tricky probate case and she really knows her stuff. Nancy was brilliant throughout and a joy to deal with.


Joanna supported me about 18 months ago with the purchase of my Flat. She was extremely efficient and yet very approachable all the way through the process. Recently, I have had need to ask for the services of Joanna again, due to the discovery of a discrepancy on my Land Registry Paperwork. This was, in no way, a fault of Joanna. Thankfully, Joanna has been able to resolve the matter for me, so that I or my family will not be faced with any any difficulties in the future.

Mrs Julie Lynch

I would highly recommend Barnes and Partners to anyone. Nigel Barnes has been handling my affairs for many years and those of several of my friends and family. I have found all the staff to be highly efficient, helpful and above all friendly. At the moment they are dealing with my mother’s affairs as she has recently passed away.

Brian Fitzgerald

We were recommended Barnes and partner to deal with probate after losing my mother in law, Nancy was fantastic. So much so we then used her in the sale of our house. All aspects where dealt with professional and swiftly, exactly what you need from a solicitor. Would definitely continue to recommend to friends and colleagues. I will be using Barnes and Partners for any other legal business in the future with absolute confidence.

Louise Klendjian

Fantastic, seamless property purchase! Thank you! We have used Nicola Payne at Barnes and Partners in Chingford twice now and couldn’t recommend her or them enough. The whole process was seamless for both purchases and both completed very quickly. Nicola or one of her assistants always got back to our emails near enough straight away and always explained things so they we would understand. You definitely pay for what you receive and I would not hesitate to recommend and use her again. Thank you for such an easy buying process!

Hayley Grosvenor

Was referred to Robert Dawson at Barnes and Partners by my estate agent and thankfully was the best decision ever! I’ve moved a fair bit and usually the solicitor part of the process is the most frustrating part, lack of communication, old school practices, hard to get hold of etc etc. Not Robert, he’s well and truly in the modern world, you can get hold of him by direct dial and email whenever you need and often he will reply to mails outside these hours. He actions enquiries swiftly, speaks in plain English and really assists in getting to where you want to be fast. I wouldn’t use anyone else in future.



David Small

Great service from Joanna Peters who handled conveyancing for my property purchase several years back – very friendly, efficient and on the ball, just what I needed as a first time buyer. When I reached out to her again recently to help me locate some extra documents in relation to the property she was very quick to respond, liaising with the Land Registry on my behalf and resolving my queries in a flash.



Jess Fogarty

Very impressed with Nicola and her team in Chingford office. As with any house sale, various issues arose along the way. Barnes and Partners dealt with them all promptly and kept us up to date the whole time. Nicola was recommended to me by a relative, as being able to ‘think outside the box’ and resolve unusual problems. I would certainly recommend her and her team to others.



This is the second time we have used Lauren and Ross at the Ware branch of Barnes & Partners to carry out our conveyancing (to both sell in Hertford, and this time, to buy in Manchester). They have both been fantastic from start to finish. Always available to answer any queries with clear, simple explanations they have made the moving process far less stressful. We would not hesitate to use them again wherever we are in the country!

Thomas Waugh

I used Barnes and Partners for a sale and purchase and while they were not the cheapest option, it was well worth paying the extra! The whole team were fantastic and so diligent that they picked up things that I would not even have thought of. They were easy to contact and despite two difficult transactions they showed great perseverance and professionalism. A special mention goes to Nicola who was so on the ball that I feared for the solicitors she was dealing with.




Karen Newman and the Stevenage team did a really great job in the sale of our property. Very helpful and at a reasonable price. Would recommend.



Peter Heigham

We used Robert Dawson for the third time to sell and buy property and I wouldn’t use anybody else. From start to finish Robert was amazing. He is always willing to answer any questions and takes away all the anxiety and stress that comes with selling or buying a property. He’s very knowledgeable and professional and couldn’t have worked harder at getting our sale through as quick and stress free as possible. Would highly recommend using Robert.
