Exciting times for Ian Walker Family Law and Mediation Limited
Since founding Ian Walker Family Law and Mediation Solicitors in 2013 we have grown from just me to the largest family team based in our part of East Devon and comparable to/ bigger than the family teams of some much larger firms based in Exeter and Taunton.
Kim Stradling joining us will really add to the strength and depth of our team.
Kim has joined us from Devon Solicitors Everys – where she was a partner and head of the family department
We assist clients from our offices and consulting rooms in Honiton, Taunton and Exeter.

We are always open to hearing from experienced Solicitors, Legal Executives and Mediators who are looking for a new challenge.
We have a model which allows for flexible working and fee share.
We would like to grow a bit more – but not too big.

Committed to excellence
As a practice we are committed to excellence. I am the Chair of the Devon Region of Resolution. I am a past member of the Law Society Family Law Committee I have also served as a Trustee of the FMA
I was the first Solicitor in Exeter to gain the Resolution Specialist Accreditation after their accreditation scheme was launched in 1999. I am also a Collaborative Family Lawyer (since 2005) and I am a Law Society Accredited Mediator and a PPC.
I am particularly pleased that in 2016, our Solicitor Carrie Meikle also gained Resolution Accredited Specialist status. With Kim, that means three of us hold this standard.
