Our family law solicitors, Joanne Matthews and Hannah Lester, are members of the Law Society's Family Law Panel and of Resolution, a group of 6,500 lawyers which believes in a constructive, non-confrontational approach to family law and one which Burnett Barker Solicitors fully endorses.
We work with you to reach agreement with your ex-partner sooner rather than later and at less cost.
Of course not all cases can be so easily resolved and sometimes a disagreement will have to go to Court. If it does, one of our Family Law solicitors, or a recommended family law barrister, will be by your side offering the best advice and representation on the day.
No case is the same but we have built up years of expertise in what can be an emotive and complicated area of the law. Whatever your situation, we have the experience, knowledge and compassion to help you through the difficult times.
Fixed fee Family Law consultations for £149.
If you want to find out where you stand and what your options are when it comes to family legal issues, we offer a one-to-one consultation for a fixed fee of £149.
Why do we charge for our family law consultations? Many firms offer a 'free' consultation of around 20-30 minutes, however we strongly believe in providing you with the advice you need for your own personal circumstances - something that can only be done with enough time and attention.
85% of family law matters never reach court and are dealt with by reaching agreement between the two parties.

Civil partnership breakdown
Child arrangement orders
