The staff were well informed as to what needed doing and always had time to go over everything with us. The language used was always plain English-no legal speak. Initial contact was very easy. Pleasant well informed staff ready to discuss any queries or problems.

Extremely helpful staff at both Morley and Birstall offices. The sweets on the reception desk in Morley were a big hit with my young grandson who came with me and the staff were not phased by having him in the appointment. All in all a brilliant service. Thank you Brearleys, Jo and Lisa.

I used the Morley office for my Will and Lasting Power of Attorney and was extremely impressed by the speed of the service I received. Everything was explained to me and any questions I raised were answered thoroughly. I used a lady called Joanna Longfellow and would not hesitate in recommending her or the company to others.

I have just received the keys to my first home. Joanne Betts was amazing, explained the process and kept me updated every step of the way. Will be recommending Joanne to all of my friends and family.

I used the Cleckheaton office to make a Will. I received a great service from start to finish. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I dealt with a solicitor called James Shingleton who was knowledgable and was able to deal with the task of drafting my Will without any fuss or delay. Would highly recommend.

Joanne Betts - Brearleys Solicitors - INCOMPETENT AND UNCARING

I got duped into using Brearleys Solicitors to buy a property and got saddled with Joanne Betts, who was a complete waste of my time and money. Not only did she have barely any time for me (she would stop replying emails at her convenience, avoid picking up the phone and when I finally got hold of her would constantly interrupt me to cut the conversation short), she was totally out of her depth when it came to buying a leasehold property - she even admitted she wasn't aware of how leasehold worked herself. She didn't do proper research whatsoever into any scheduled works for the property and I had to pull her up on some searches she couldn't be bothered to perform that would have added thousands of pounds to the final bill. She didn't care at all about her client and treated the whole process with the disdain of a Tesco employee checking your items out at a cashier..

Ironically, she was extremely quickly to reply when I challenged the hefty legal bill she produced for doing such a terrible job - she immediately threated to call the debt collectors! Buying a house is an expensive and time-consuming process - life is too short to deal with uncaring and incompetent people like Joanne Betts from Brearleys Solicitors. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE.

We are sorry that you feel this way about the service you have received at my firm but I disagree with your view as to the alleged poor service you received and I dealt with your concerns directly and swiftly upon you raising them with me at the time . My clear recollection is that you withdrew from a transaction on the basis of matters that arose that were completely unrelated to Joanne and my firms conduct in dealing with this matter on your behalf.

COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT. One of the slowest solicitors I have every come across. Do not understand conveyancing and put administration staff in place to complete a solicitors work

Disgusting service!! DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!! If there was a zero star rating they would get it!! Absolutely shocking service while purchasing a house using Brighouse branch! Solicitor has told us things would happen on certain dates and each and every time they haven't happened, shocking service, never call us with updates. Do not use these solicitors unless you want rubbish customer service and for the whole process to take a lifetime. Quote from there website- "If you are looking for a solicitor that puts clients first then you have come to the right place."- biggest load of rubbish I've ever read they couldn't give a dam about there clients!!

Absolutely disgusted with the service I was given by this firm, but due to technicalities, I was unable to take a case for professional negligence.
The advice I was given has up to now cost me over £100K, which if the solicitor in question had told me the truth could have been avoided.
Reading the information that I requested from them, the solicitor handling my case was totally incompetent, the staff under him were lax to say the least and even after I signed a commercial transaction the paperwork was not completed even until this date.
Would I use this firm again, well let me tell you about a few mailings sent to me by the managing partner, Michael Barber. Have you ever known of a solicitor who never uses comma's in a letter? It's just unfortunate for me and my financial health, I found this out much later.
So ask yourself this, would you use a solicitor where the head man doesn't even know how to use a simple thing like 'comma's' in his letters? Would you like to wake up every morning, like myself, knowing that you have debts possibly for the rest of your life, due to pure incompetence of this firm and the solicitor and staff they employed?
Then 'JUST SAY NO' to Brearley's solicitors.
