Family Law Group of London Puts Family at The Forefront

As life becomes more complicated, the definition of the family unit often changes. And when family must deal with change – including separation, divorce, custody and access, child support, spousal support and property issues – it’s imperative that those involved seek the guidance of a knowledgeable, professional law firm.

Family Law Group of London takes great pride in knowing that its team of lawyers are a like-minded group with your best interests always at the forefront. A boutique family law firm practicing exclusively in family law, Family Law Group has recently grown to include five lawyers ready to help make your life changes as smooth as possible.

Family Law Group offers personal, professional and compassionate service to individuals who are either considering separating, or have separated from their spouse/partner. Lawyer Lisa Walters B.A., LL.B, a new addition to Family Law Group, said because the firm is a closely-knit unit with a sole focus on family law, clients therefore receive the best available support during times of transition.

“We have the needs of the family at the forefront of everything we do,” explained Walters. “All of our lawyers and our support staff are family law focused. We all practice family law exclusively. No matter what family matter you bring to us, we’ve seen that scenario before. And with an experienced team, we can bounce ideas off of each other to serve you well.”

Brenda Barr is the founder of Family Law Group. She received a BA in Psychology and a Master of Social Work from Wilfrid Laurier University. Barr worked as a social worker for Child and Family Services of Waterloo Region, as well as for the Children’s Aid Society of London and Middlesex.
