Hello, my name’s Rosamund Evans and I want to tell you about us.
Barker Evans Private Client Law is a niche law firm offering expertise in age and disability related issues.
You might think all law firms are the same – I want to show you they’re not. Let me explain…
When I started my law firm in 2008 I knew I wanted to make it as easy as I could for my clients to get the help they need at a price they can afford; in a way that’s comfortable and really supportive.
How do we do that?
I’ve worked as a lawyer in legal practices ranging from High Street solicitors to national multi-office Legal 500 law firms. I know how traditional law firms operate and I believe in a more flexible, more friendly, more practical way for clients to get help.
So here’s what we do..
You can access a wide variety of information and legal advice right here on this site. Much of it’s free!
You’ll find case studies, How-to Guides and free checklists and top tips, documents to download as well as our popular blog posts.
You can also join our membership service called BE My Own Lawyer which gives you access to discounts, special offers and more in-depth information and support. It’s free to join and you can upgrade your membership to get even more benefits such as free one-to-one advice sessions.
If you want a personal consultation why not book an appointment at our West Bridgford office or if you can’t come to us – we’ll come to you. Home and hospital visits are available without extra charge (in the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire areas during usual office hours).
If you would prefer a chat over the phone at a time to suit you then our fixed fee telephone consultations could be just what you need. It’s simple to arrange – read more
You will always have contact with the same professional throughout. Usually that will be me. No matter how complex or straight forward your matter is you will still receive the same quality service from the same experienced, fully qualified lawyer throughout.
Our charges are straight forward and transparent. We charge fixed fees in all but exceptional cases and always confirm what our fees are going to be before starting any work.
Barker Evans is a specialist law practice but that doesn’t mean we can’t help with a wide range of issues. By working closely with a group of independent lawyers and other professionals who are each specialists in their own fields we are able to give our clients comprehensive support and wide choice in the way they access the legal services they want.
Where are we?
The firm started in the Mapperley area of Nottingham and has developed an extensive client network throughout Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and the wider East Midlands in the UK.
We are now based in West Bridgford Nottingham at the Bridgford Business Centre where we offer consultations in a modern ground floor meeting room situated close to easy parking and regular bus routes.
