Client Testimonials

Brighton and Hove, and particularly Samantha Barker, come highly recommended. The work that Samantha puts into her client’s case is unbelievable- the preparation and attention to detail is second to none

Marc Newsom, Senior Practice Manager

Even though I am not your client, I would like to thank you for your prompt responses and the help you have provided.

I would certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a family lawyer.

Ms S – Brighton

It is always a pleasure to receive a brief from Jennifer Lynch and Lucy Gregory. They are detailed and helpful which greatly assists in the through prep of a case. Their robust approach and collaborative working is reassuring for clients and energising to work with.

Sarah Dummett and Ellie Chapman provide a first class, client focused service. Their advice and approach is accessible while robust.

Ayisha Robertson, Barrister

Lucy provided services as my solicitor long-distance. I was residing in the US while my case was ongoing in the UK court. I had the pleasure of meeting her face-to-face for an initial consultation before my return to the US and she was very professional in all correspondence until matters came to a conclusion.

She was always very happy to answer questions thoroughly and schedule long-distance phone calls when I requested them. She has a very kind and professional nature. Needless to say, she made what could have been an exhausting process extremely painless. I highly recommend her.

Ms S 

Sarah has been unfailingly professional and client focused throughout. Her enthusiasm and commitment to always providing the best legal advice and assistance to clients is unparalleled. I would have no hesitation in referring a friend or family to Sarah in the event of them having a family law issue.

Michael Valks, Barrister

Hello Lucy,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for all your brilliant advice. I don’t think I would have got through it all without your support. I will certainly recommend you to anyone who needs an excellent solicitor.

Ms K – Brighton

You all helped me through a really tough and stressful situation.  Thank you so much.

Many thanks for your advice and guidance throughout this very stressful process. Your careful and considered approach, your good advice and your empathetic professionalism have helped to reduce my anxiety levels immeasurably.
