Rex Garton, who I knew personally would be proud of the service you still provide.

We had excellent service and all our requests were met in a very professional manner. Glenys Plaskitt was pleasant and very helpful, she made sure we were well informed.

Always had excellent service over the years thank you, keep up the good work.

Thank you very much for the speedy and professional service and for making the whole experience stress free

Seamless 1st class service thank you.

Great service and always answered questions when they needed to be.

Our main contact was through email. I recieved prompt replies to any questions I had. Good service. Would recommend to anyone buying a house.

Excellent service from the first minute to the last 10/10!!

We were very impressed with the work done on our behalf by Tim Phipps. We would certainly recommend your company to anyone.


10th July 2019

We were very happy with Sue and the reception staff. They always kept us informed, went the extra mile and never gave us false information. Best Solicitors we have ever used. Thank you so much.


3rd April 2019

Tim Phipps has been professional, friendly and approachable throughout my case. He spoke in plain english explaining every step of the way. I would highly recommend Tim Phipps to anyone wishing to pursue a personal injury claim. I would also recommend Mason Baggott and Garton as a whole.


3rd April 2019

Even though Becci was up against poor buyers solicitors she did a fantastic job. Communication was excellent throughout and she answered all the questions I had.I would have no hesitation in recommending your firm to anyone.

Everything went ahead efficiently and without and problems. All matters dealt with via email or phone with minimal effort from mtself and making the whole process smooth and stress free.

Sophie was always on the ball and worked ahead of plan to ensure a speedy service. She explained complex issues in a way we could understand and gave very good advice. We have never used a solicitors who were not local to us however Sophie made sure that this was not an issue and made sure that timings for post etc were never an issue - a real expert in all interactions.

Professional, friendly, explained everything clearly.

Amazing communication from start to finish. Simon and Travis have both been brilliant, nothing was too much trouble for them and I was kept up to date at all times.


30th September 2019

This is the first time I have used your services. I found all of the staff were very helpful and courteous.

Everything has been done to our satisfaction and I thank Richard and Shelley for their service to ourselves.

This is the first time I have used your services. I found all of the staff were very helpfull and curtious.


3rd October 2019

In what turned out to be a less than straight forward property purchase the quality and communication from Melissa Moran was outstanding; despite global pandemic! Very thorough and professional, and kept pushing the process on at all times. Thank you so much.

Moving house was stressful for all the normal reasons but the one element that consistently met or exceeded expectations was the service from Mason Baggott & Garton. Jenny and Pippa were great but special mention has to go to Megan who was my main point of contact and who offered a flawless service throughout.

As always, relevant and efficient and handled with great attention to the detail.

1st class, no one could have been better. Thank you.

I Can’t thank Mr Phipps and his team enough for their help in my sons legal case. I approached Mr Phipps based on a friends recommendation and he has not disappointed one bit! Not only was he approachable and helpful from start to finish, he took the burden and stress from us and got the outcome my son wanted. Thank you again


25th October 2018

Everything explained perfectly putting our minds at ease.

The progress of our purchase was poor because of the actions of the solicitors the represented the  vendor and also the actions of the vendor of the property. The vendors solicitors continually 'messed up' by not checking forms filled in by their client, not getting signatures ready for exchange etc and their continual lack of contact about the situation with Kerry. All of which made it very difficult for those, particularly Kerry, having to liaise with them and their actions or lack of actions.

By comparison, Kerry handled the situation professionally in or best interest. It was a difficult move due to extenuating circumstances but handled with compassion by Kerry. And also by members of other staff who where aware of our circumstances. Hazel on reception was for me absolutely what a receptionist is about, I found her very calming when i needed it.

Sophie has been excellent throughout, keeping us informed and our best interests at heart. Thank you for a quick, reliable and efficient service.


1st September 2019

I’d just like to acknowledge the exceptional level of service that I recently received from Sophie Croft from your organisation during my recent house move. Please could this e-mail be passed to her supervisor and superiors to recognise her professionalism, diligence and empathy during a very stressful period. Words cannot thank her enough. She is an asset to your organisation and should be highly recognised for how she approaches her work!

Would just like to say that we  felt we received no lesser service than usual despite being in the mist of the Covid-19 crisis. Thank you.

Brilliant service, highly recommended.


1st September 2019

Under difficult virus conditions your system coped well, many thanks.

Really appreciate being able to complete our remortgage in the current climate. Thank you for your help.

Great service been provided, always in time. Fast answers , friendly staff.

Service given was excellent. Visits were made quick and easy by clear instructions and delivered in a friendly manner. All in all a pleasant experience.

We as a family have used these solicitors frequently over the past few years in various departments as well. We have found them to be extremely efficient, informative and friendly in all of there departments.

Exceptional Service. Your firm was new into Barton when we decided to give you a try. We are so glad we did. Could not fault Simon, Travis or the reception staff. We would and already have recommended your company to anyone and everyone.


8th July 2019

The service was excellent from the initial phone call to actually signing the will. Very friendly professional staff with home visit included for health reasons. Very pleased with everything and would highly recommend.

Everything went very smoothly so much so that there was little contact needed.

Fabulous service, Simon couldn't do enough for us and any problems we had he got sorted straight away. Thank you.

We were both satisfied with every aspect of our appointment. All the way through we felt very comfortable, every point was explained to us.

Mr Dean was helpful and a pleasure to deal with. The whole process was efficient and professionaly handled. I will be pleased to use Mason Baggott and Garton in the future.


Really happy with the speed and efficiency of their company.

Ann Hinds was excellent. She was extremely patient with us as first time buyers. She always had time to explain things to us, so we always understand what was happening. Nothing was too much trouble. Should I need a solicitor in the future, I wouldn’t hesitate to approach Ann again.

I have been dealing with your firm for a number of years now and the care and attention by all the staff has been first class. It can not be improved. Through happy times and sad times it has always been the same. Thank you very much for all your help.


6th November 2019

Went out of their way to help us.

Another job well done. Thank you.

I was Late for my second appointment, so they were within their rights to either not see me or wait till the end. But no, I was seen to straight away!

Thank you for all your hard work and kindness shown to us over the last years Excellent job .Well done Regards Thelma


10th October 2018

I would recommend your service to other people I am very happy with the service I received. Laura was very helpful in assisting me with regards to my late husband and helping me to write my will.

1st August 2018

We have been extremely impressed with the service from the first conversation through to completion. Very happy indeed with the full service particularly at this difficult time. Simon, Mary and Travis have been excellent. We will certainly use you when we purchase our next home.

I only really dealt with Travis, Mr Brocklesby's assistant, who was very helpful in arranging witness signatures during lock down and was very clear with email and telephone conversations. All in all, very good.

I have been delighted with the response of MB and G from the moment I arrived unannounced, following the death of my mother. The advice and guidance I have been given have been excellent, nothing has been too much trouble and all staff I have met have been approachable and pleasant. Even though you are not local to where we live, my husband and I will certainly consider using you again and also commend you to others.

I had a great experience with Mason Baggott and Garton Solicitors. Sophie, my solicitor was excellent and quickly earned my trust. She is an informative, calm professional and we cannot thank her enough for her support.

Thank you for your efficient service. I'm a first time buyer and you made it as painless as possible!


Everything was very easy for me as a first time buyer, everything was explained in a ways I could understand and they answered any questions and query’s straight away. They always chased on things as well, trying to get me moved forward and into my new home as quickly as possible

Friendly professional service. My first time dealing with a solicitor as a first time buyer and they kept me informed all the way along, and made me aware when I needed to do anything. Happy with the service.

Always an excellent and trustworthy service, thank you!


24th July 2019

This was my first ever house purchase and i knew nothing about the process. Simon and his team made everything so simple even don to my questions which he must have answered so many times before. Couldn't have asked for a better solicitors to deal with.

Once again thank you so much for your help and advice, also, it’s been a pleasure meeting you. Would recommend you all day long.

A short email to say thank you for your help in achieving a successful sale of our house.  All went very smoothly.  Well done!


30th January 2019

I just wanted to drop you an email saying thank you for all your help during my house buying process.

You and everyone in your team were absolutely brilliant and I am very happy with the service I received from you. Thanks a lot for all your help, great communication, and friendly and personal approach.

Definitely will recommend your company to any one buying a house, and definitely will use your services in the future.

All the best to you and everyone in your team!

Thank you


It was a stressful time for us during the process. Sophie and the team showed empathy and patience. They ensured that everything went smoothly and where issues came up the team made sure that they minimised the stress involved. We cannot thank you enough. Cheryl Watkins was also very helpful and supportive.

Excellent service. Jenny and Megan made sure that very rock was turned for us. Thank you for all your patience towards me. But I think our seller required a lot more than me. Thank you again for helping us with our conveyancing.

Under the current circumstances I was worried about how my business would be completed. It was lovely how helpful and reassuring everyone dealt with it all to a very satisfactory conclusion. You are recommended for your help and efficiency, Thank you very much.

Jenny was ahead of schedule at all times. Whenever I rang she was on the ball immediately with our case and always knew exactly where we were at with things. She came across as very personable and real which made her very easy to talk with…..I only have experience of one house sale and purchase before, and from that thought it was a given that solicitors were slow and a bit difficult. I cannot praise Jenny enough. I never thought I would recommend a solicitor.

Hi Tim, Thank you very much for helping me with claim , I couldn’t have  done it without  your help…once again Thank you so very much Tracey.

12th July 2018

On the two occasions we had meetings with Laura King we found her very informative and efficient in dealing with our request. Very surprised we had things sorted so quickly. Thank you.

Very good service from Melissa Moran. Our house sale/purchase was progressed quickly and easily. She was also able to prevent the sellers estate agents from causing trouble along the way. I would just like to say a thank you to Melissa Moran for all her help throughout  the process. It took all the stress out of buying and selling the house.
