What the clients say :

Martin and Steph have been amazing throughout, they were patient and understand when we pulled out of a sale and we had to start the whole process again with a new property. We always felt like they were 100% on our side. They were both quick to reply to emails and queries, explained the whole process to us and made sure we were kept in the loop and up to date at all times. We would both highly recommend! Ms Tindall

I first instructed Martin Lawrence when selling a property at auction. He was recommended to me by the auctioneer who stated that Martin was one of the best and most respected professionals in the business; he wasn't wrong. Martin and Stephanie Davidson are a dream team in conveyancing: professional, diligent, thorough, responsive and trustworthy - a rare and prized combination. I have since instructed Martin in, what has turned out to be, a complex leasehold purchase and would absolutely recommend him to anybody. In this day and age, it is incredibly difficult to find a trusted conveyancer for any purchase or sale, let alone one that specialises in property auctions. I wholeheartedly recommend. 

I recently instructed F.Barnes Solicitors  for the purchase of an auction property.Martin Lawrence and Stephanie Davison who handled the transaction were absolutely brilliant.From start to finish the service was outstanding. The speed ,efficiency  and friendly manner in which they conducted the whole matter is most impressive and exceptional. .I was kept informed  at  all times  and everything  was explained in plain,jargon- free English which was very reassuring.The quotation I was given at the start by Martin was spot on and there were no nasty surprises.I can truly say it is one of the best law firms I  have dealt with and would highly recommend them.My grateful thanks to Martin and Stephanie and I take this opportunity of wishing them and all at F.Barnes continued success.Mrs A.
