We are thrilled to have won two awards at the Devon and Somerset Law Society Legal Awards this month.

The DASLS Awards aims to celebrate and raise the profile of the solicitor’s profession.

Kim Stradling, leading child law expert at Ian Walker Family Law and Mediation Solicitors won the Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Award, and our founder, Mediator and Solicitor Ian Walker, won the Leader of the Year Award.

Ian commented “I am overjoyed that we have been recognised in two categories at the DASLS Awards, this is an incredible achievement for the team and celebrates the amazing work we have been doing. In the last 18 months our practice has grown significantly, despite the challenges of the pandemic. We have expanded by building a team of outstanding lawyers and by being progressive and forward thinking in how we practice. We have a fantastic team and I am very proud of everyone”.

With an influx of new enquiries during the pandemic we moved our head office to Pynes Hill in Exeter in 2020. We have offices across the South West and specialise in all areas of family law including divorce, separation, finance and children law.

Ian Walker Family Law and Mediation Solicitors have also been shortlisted in two categories at the Law Society Legal Awards which aims to celebrate solicitors for the outstanding work they accomplished over the challenges of the past year. We are finalists in the Excellence in Practice Management and Sole Practitioner of the Year categories.

We are also finalists in the Family Law Firm of the Year category at the Family Law Awards which recognises the firm that has demonstrated providing outstanding quality of legal service for its clients and has displayed high levels of teamwork within it’s firm.

The Law Society Awards are being held virtually with an online ceremony on the 7th October and the Family Law Awards will be holding a glittering event at the Bloomsbury Big Top in London on the 24th November.
