Family Law

Family problems can be harrowing and emotionally scarring. They can be the most stressful times of your life.Only the best legal advice can get you the best possible outcome.

Whether it’s about separation, divorce, children’s issues, adoption or any other family matter, talk to us in confidence. Our objective, supportive advice will help you understand the options available to you. We’ll minimise conflict and bring about a fair solution.

Wills and Probate

Making a will might not be something you like to think about. But if you have family, friends and favourite charities, you should – because they could end up with nothing.

Making a will is particularly important if you’re not married or not in a registered civil partnership. The law doesn’t automatically give partners who live together the same rights as husbands, wives and civil partners.

Islamic Wills

It’s important not to put off making an Islamic will. Should you pass on without one, the state will declare that you died ‘intestate’. Your wealth and possessions will then be distributed according to English rules on intestacy. These differ from the criteria laid down under Shariah Law.

Personal Injury

If you’ve been injured or fallen ill and you feel it was someone else’s fault, you’ll no doubt know that you could be entitled to compensation. You’ll also know that you can claim on a no-win, no-fee basis.

That’s true at Barber and Co. We’re one of the North West’s foremost personal-injury legal practices. We’ve won millions of pounds in compensation for our clients. From road traffic accidents to slips and trips, and from cycling accidents to holiday accidents.

Medical Negligence

Have you been diagnosed wrongly by a doctor or health professional? Has their lack of judgement or incompetence led to physical or psychological problems? Medical negligence can be hard to prove. That’s why you need a team of trusted medical negligence lawyers on your side.

At Barber and Co., we’ve represented hundreds of victims of medical negligence, bringing cases against GPs, surgeons and NHS Trusts throughout Lancashire and beyond. We’ve settled dozens of high-value compensation claims, including instances of serious injury and death.

Employment Law

Having problems at work? Bringing action against your employer can be extremely stressful. But here at Barber and Co., our specialist employment law solicitors are on your side.

We’ll take the weight off your shoulders with advice on any action you can take against your employer. If we think it’s the right course of action, we’ll help you make a claim.

Criminal Defence

If you need criminal defence, you’re likely to face a very challenging time. And sadly, Legal Aid is no longer always available in criminal cases. Even where it is, the firms that offer it are under governmentfinancial restraint.

Your fate could be in the hands of lawyers receiving a government-set standard fee. That’s not going to produce the best outcome.
