    What our clients say about our
    Solicitors in Leigh

    Our appointment was arranged with Sophie, initially reading matters of Probate for my Late Mum, then to renew and update my Will and that of my wife. Sophie was courteous and understanding, and advised us on the steps to be taken. Probate has been granted in record time, in proof that all preliminary works have been completed correctly and efficiently by Sophie. Our Wills are more complex than a standard persons and involve trading companies and building assets. Sophie and Jade advised us in a proper and legal way including issues we had not taken into consideration. We will definitely work with members of Butcher & Barlow again with any issues of a legal/personal nature.

    Mr and Mrs Baines

    Some time ago we made inquiries regarding having Wills made up for the both of us. We inquired with Butcher & Barlow, who promptly invited us to their office for an in-depth chat and to get the ball rolling. Sophie went through the ins and outs, and after just a couple of weeks we had our Wills signed and witnessed. Soon after, our copies were sent to us. Butcher & Barlow offer a great service and resulted in us being totally satisfied in having an important issue completed professionally.

    Brian and Cathy

    Thank you to all the staff at the Butcher & Barlow Leigh branch. I thought about making my Will for such a long time. When I actually decided to take action, I wish I had done it sooner. Sophie talked me through the process and I was instantly put at ease. It took no more than two weeks to complete, and now I am so relieved it is in safe keeping at the solicitors. Thank you again for your friendly and very efficient service.

    Mrs C W

    I recently used Butcher & Barlow for my Will. This was quite a complex thing for me due to my personal circumstances. However, the service I received was professional and time was taken to discuss all my worries and concerns. I am very grateful for the advice and guidance I received from Sophie during the setting up of my will. Thank you.

    Mr A

    Professional service. Sophie Nicholson was very helpful and explained everything I needed to know and consider when drafting my Will. She was also very reassuring. Should I need to make any adjustments in the future, I will only need to call in. I would recommend Butcher & Barlow to anyone needing legal advice.

    M Short

    We recently instructed Butcher & Barlow to write a Will for my 94 year old mother. We arranged a home visit and were visited by Jade Kay. Mum is extremely hard of hearing and Jade was brilliant at communicating with her. Jade was patient and understanding. She explained everything in detail and made sure mum was happy with everything. Excellent service and happy to recommend.

    Miss B

    I am very grateful for your help following the death of my husband. Every member of your staff I came into contact with was professional, efficient and kind. Thank you.

    Mrs LJB

    Jade at Butcher & Barlow helped us with the process of applying for Deputyship for a family member. From the outset, the whole process and fees were explained fully to us. We were kept informed throughout the whole process and would recommend Butcher & Barlow in the future.

    J & M

    Thank you Sophie for your non-invasive attention to difficult subjects and your pleasant, helpful assistance.

    V Worthington

    I came to Butcher & Barlow on the recommendation of a friend. I feel that I was very lucky to have been helped by Claire as she is an amazing Solicitor. Not only is she very thorough and astute in her work, but I also felt that she cared. I think this is a very rare quality in a Solicitor, and whilst I was going through what I can only describe as the worst few years of my life, I was made to feel that little less alone as I knew I had Claire in my corner. I can't thank Claire enough for all the help she has given me in relation to the court hearings I have had to attend for family and financial matters. I highly recommend Claire to anyone and would defiantly go straight to Claire if I needed any legal assistance in the future. I couldn't have asked for a better turn out or a better Solicitor.
