 Ian Walker Family Law and Mediation Solicitors are very pleased to have expanded their service to include an office at Prospect House, Poundbury, Dorchester.

Ian Walker founded the practice just over eight years ago. Initially the practice was simply Ian and a computer. The practice started to expand from 2015 and the team now includes 17 solicitors plus 8 trainee solicitors.

We only undertake family law and children law work. This includes representing clients cases such as divorce / civil partnership / Cohabittee relationship breakdown and associated financial cases, child law including disagreements between parents including contact and residence and relocation and cases involving social services.

We are a progressive and dynamic practice and are one of the fastest-growing legal practices in the South/South-West. Outstanding client care and legal advice are at the core of what we do. Along the way our progressive practice has been recognised by Ian Walker being highly commended in the Law Society Excellence Awards 2019 in the category of practice manager, and the firm being named The Boutique Law Firm of the Year (11+ employees) in the Modern Law Awards 2020. We have also been recognised in the Legal 500 is being a leading family law practice.

Our head office is in Exeter, but we have locations from where we meet clients across the south-west including Plymouth, Bristol, Bath, Taunton, Yeovil, Poole and now Poundbury/Dorchester.

Our team includes Ian Walker (who is a former member of the Law Society Family Law Committee, a former trustee of the Family Mediators Association and the long-standing chair of the Devon region of Resolution). Also, Lisa Holden who was formerly a partner and head of family law with Blanchards Bailey, and Lauren Preedy who is the head of our Divorce/Relationships Team previously with Porter Dodson and who is the Chair of the Somerset region of Resolution.
