legal Team

We are one of the leading firms of Family Law Solicitors in the South-West.

The quality of our team is recognised in the Legal 500. This is an independently researched directory of the legal profession.

We were the winners of Boutique Law Firm (11+ Employees) in the Modern Law Awards 2020 and our founder and managing director – Ian Walker – was highly commended in the Law Society Excellence Awards 2019 in the category of Practice Manager.

We have built a team that combines considerable experience with a strong commitment to training future family solicitors. This has helped us to create an working environment which is in our view something special and which emphasises, team working, knowledge sharing and learning, promoting best practice and always seeking improvement. We believe is also very beneficial to our clients.

All our lawyers are members of Resolution. We are friendly and approachable. We want to assist you to get the best solutions possible – but in the right way.
