    What our clients say about our
    Solicitors in Prestwich

    Donna is super helpful, professional and responsive. I would really recommend Butcher and Barlow - a great experience.


    I have worked with Philip Thompson both for the purchase and the sale of my house and I have to say he is very professional, efficient and has your best interests at heart. Highly recommend ++


    Phillip Thompson acted on my behalf, and the process was trouble free - especially considering the negative effects of the Covid-19 on businesses. The house purchase was completed in good time, and I am now in my new property. Butcher & Barlow have acted on my behalf on most of my house moves over the years, and have always provided an excellent service. Would strongly recommend.


    Sadly I did not utilise Butcher & Barlow under particularly favorable circumstances. I've had two very difficult and ultimately unsuccessful conveyancing experiences while with them. I am happy to say however, that while things did not go as planned, Butcher & Barlow conducted themselves professionally, ethically and with patience. The difficult circumstances I found myself in did give them the opportunity to demonstrate that they're honest, patient, stick to their word, and have empathy when it is required. Philip Thompson in particular should be commended for the way he handled interactions with a disagreeable behaviour from a third party, and subsequently in handling my own frustrations in reaction to this. He helped me to understand what my options were and provided support and sympathy in a professional manner. I'll absolutely return to Butcher & Barlow to hopefully have a more successful sale and purchasing experience in the near future.


    Very responsive to queries and very patent with an anxious/ stressed client . It was always reassuring to have someone with Philip's experience on side.

    Just exchanged on my house and Philip Thompson has been brilliant. He has ensured everything has gone smoothly and chased the buyers solicitors when needed. He kept us informed and was honest with us. Would definitely recommend him for conveyancing. Like any solicitor I'm sure he has a high workload but he has put in the time and we felt like he actually cared about us completing on time. He was very patient with me. Thanks again to Philip and the rest of the team at Butcher & Barlow LLP.

    I would like to say a big thank for stepping in and helping me out getting divorced. If it wasn’t for you I would still probably have been married. I would recommended you to my family and friends if they need a Solicitor regarding family issues. Your service had been phenomenal and I give you 10/10 for the service you have provided.
