We have one of the most experienced teams of Family Law Solicitors and Divorce Lawyers in the South West. (Several of our team have previously headed family law teams at rival firms) We are also a neutral family mediation service.

We want to be the best family law solicitor / divorce solicitor / family mediator for you.

Coronavirus / COVID-19 (updated 05 June 2020)

We have remained open for business throughout the Covid-19 lock-down. Our legal team continues to work largely from home. Our IT infrastructure has coped very well and our team has worked very hard to meet the needs of clients and to respond to new enquiries quickly.

Meetings with clients through videoconferencing (including new clients) have been very popular. This is a very convenient format for everyone and the meetings have worked very well. 

We are able to offer face to face meetings where this is necessary but we are taking care to follow carefully the guidance from the Government and from HM Courts service.

We will shortly be making some further exciting announcements about the expansion of our service.

I founded Ian Walker Family Law and Mediation Solicitors from scratch in 2012. We are now one of the South West leading Family Law Solicitors practices with an exceptionally experienced team. We hold the Law Society Lexcel Accreditation for excellence in Legal Practice.

We are all committed members of Resolution. I am the current Chair of Devon Resolution, first being elected by my peers in 2009. I am also a former member of the Law Society Family Law Committee and a former trustee of the Family Mediators Association. I am a current member of Resolution’s Dispute Resolution Committee. The best progressive family law practice is embedded in the DNA of our team.

We assist with matters such as; Divorce/Separation, Divorce Finance, Pre-nuptial Agreements; Child Law including; Child Arrangements, Social Services cases, Surrogacy, Adoption, Mediation, Arbitration and (subject to availability) with Legal Aid.

We strive to achieve the best outcomes for our clients and their children and to provide an outstanding service. We are transparent about how we charge. Read more about us below…
