"We would like to thank Ms. Barnes for representing us and seeing the case through to a conclusion. Our case was handled professionally and efficiently. The lines of communication were varied (face to face consultation; telephone conference; site visit; email and telephone conversations). Utilising all of these modes of communication were vital, ensuring minimal disruption to our busy lives. Ms. Barnes was mindful that finance was a consideration, yet her work on our behalf was not compromised. The invoices for works completed were incremental and itemised promoting transparency. We would like to thank Ms. Barnes for her hard work and commitment and would recommend this firm without hesitation." September 2019.

"I engaged the professional advice and guidance of mfg Solicitors (previously Pearson Rowe) late summer 2017 following a road traffic accident where I was hit by a car while cycling in Birmingham city centre. The process of my claim ran for a period of two years and during that time I was very happy with the frequency of communication the prompt responses to my queries (which were at times considerable). Communication overall was very good, clear and always professional, from both my solicitor Poonam Barnes and the staff at mfg. The guidance from my solicitor during that time was always supportive and I felt very confident in her abilities and knowledge. My case had a successful outcome and I would happily appoint the services of mfg in the future if the need or occasion arises.” October 2019.

"Poonam Barnes was realistic and measured with her advice - she definitely doesn’t make a drama out of a crisis! But her sensible advice and practical guidance in settling my party wall dispute with my intractable neighbour (we had to take him to court in the end) was highly effective. I couldn’t be more pleased with how things turned out - which isn’t something you hear everyday in relation to the law!" October 2019.

"Me and my father would like to say thank you very much for your professionalism in handling this matter and for your excellent customer service." August 2019.
