Ian Walker says:

We are delighted that Fiona has decided to join our team.

Fiona is a very experienced family solicitor. She has particular expertise in divorce and finance law and cohabitation disputes.

Fiona’s addition to our team will mean that we will have 9 family solicitors and legal executives from January 2019. This makes us one of the largest and most experienced teams of family lawyers in the South West.

Fiona, David Howell-Richardson, Sandy Powell and Kim Stradling have all been partners and heads of the family departments at previous practices. This gives us exceptional strength and depth within our team.

We will also have more capacity to see and act for clients in Taunton and Bridgwater, which is really exciting.

Fiona is a pleasure to work with. She already knows most our lawyers very well and she will be a great addition to the team.

Fiona says

Everyone here is really friendly. I am very impressed by the use of cloud based technology at Ian Walker Family Law and Mediation Solicitors.

I am really looking forward to 2019. Having seen Ian Walker Family Law and mediation Solicitors grow as an outsider, I am really excited to be joining the team.
