Jim has been our family law firm for many years, my dad recommended him to us, since he has helped my family purchase many properties with ease & professionalism. Jim is thorough, man of integrity, does not cut corners, sometimes he has given us free advice & carried out further work without charge which is uncommon these day. Jim is kind and a great human being, compassion that you see rarely nowadays, no wonder why my father spoke so highly of him. I have also been recommending him to my friends & other people for their peace of mind. He will not disappoint you. if you wish to speak to me I am available to verify this.

Jim took over the conveyancing of my late father’s property which was owned by a Housing Association.
Jim’s fee which I consider reasonable, in the light of everything else I have had to pay, was settled up front with nothing additional added regardless of how protracted the job. There were ups and downs, my buyer lost his first buyer and the Housing Association were slow but the fee was fixed.
Jim responded promptly to emails and overall I have been pleased with the service.

I have actually used this firm for conveyancing since 2001. I initially chose this firm when I was about to purchase my property on the shared ownership scheme. I found Jim and everyone in the firm to be professional and friendly. I have only recently used this firm to purchase my new home and sell the old one. I did not experience any animosity and not only would I use them again but recommend them to friends and relatives.

Shocking story - avoid

Zero would be a better rating - the rudest, most unprofessional man/service I have ever been on the receiving end of. Creating unnecessary stress and heartache. I will never understand why he was so rude either. It wasn't his life/money/family involved. He is playing with real lives and heartache. very sad.

awful awful company - please do more research before you pick your solicitors...buying / selling a property is already stressful enough, don't miss out on your dreams by picking the wrong company

Had to deal with James E Barnes over a property I brought snd they were the sellers solicitors. It was a shared ownership property we brought 100% but were not told the staircasing had not occured so we had to deal with two solicitors. I have never been spoken to in such a rude tone in my life-completly unprofessional.
We had a lot of queries as it was a complex transaction and on emailing queries got no answers to our questions and go so fustrated almost pulled out. Also on speaking to the clients seemed they were not up to date and implied the solicitor was being rude not on there request.
Do not use at all costs.

If you value your time, money and health stay away from this solicitors.I had the most stressful times dealing with this man and his `team`. They are not interested in what you have to say once they got the money and simply refuse to talk to you on phone when problems occur...I had to sack this solicitor few weeks before completion date otherwise it was not going to be completed. The only reason I did not go to ombudsman is because I was drained and could not deal with him anymore.. If you are lucky enough to read this before you decide stay away.... You have been warned!
