Carla Fishlock
Senior Associate Solicitor

As a Family Solicitor at Fullers Family Law, I have significant experience in helping clients through a range of family law related matters and have a particular expertise in divorce and financial settlements.

I began working in family law in 2007 supporting family lawyers with cases, attending court hearings and had extensive exposure to High Net Worth cases.

Since qualifying as a Legal Executive in 2012 and thereafter a Solicitor in 2016, I have built a reputation for resolving complex financial matters arising from divorce and separation.  These have included international and High Net Worth matters. I always aim to exceed client expectations and pride myself on helping them to understand their goals in splitting their finances and property.

I can also advise on a wide range of family law matters arising out of the breakup of relationships including:

  • Cohabitation Agreements
  • Separation Agreements
  • Pre/Postnup Agreements
  • Private children’s matters
  • Domestic violence

I aim to resolve client matters as soon as possible, enabling them to move forward with their life. I always try to resolve matters without the need for court proceedings in the first instance, thereby reducing the stress and associated cost for clients.

I always ensure that my clients feel listened to and clearly understand their options and the strategy for their situation, without being overloaded with legal terminology.

My approach is to be empathetic and personable but also pragmatic and forward-thinking. I understand that going through a divorce/separation is not a business transaction but is an extremely turbulent and emotional time for a client who is facing many unknowns. I always strive to support and guide my clients in the way that suits their needs best.

I’m also an active Member of Resolution.

“I found Fullers Family Law fantastic. From an initial call for a free 30 minute consultation, to a follow up call from Mr Fuller himself, meeting him and Carla and her handling my case, I found them helpful and felt that they cared. They left me feeling empowered to deal with the matter and took the stress away. They did not try and get me to spend more money than was necessary, even suggesting on occasion that it wasn't worth spending money on certain things. When advice was needed urgently it would be done the same day. They were flexible in their approach to meeting with me (face to face or Zoom). They gave me the confidence to stand up to my ex, call her bluff and as a result I received a fair settlement, still out of court. I cannot recommend Fullers Family Law enough. I would have no hesitation in using them again in the future.”

“I could not thank or recommend Fullers Family Law enough. From my first contact with them they were sympathetic and helpful. Carla and Martin took me from an all time low and empowered me to fight for what was fair. They came up with "out of the box" solutions, gave me a lot of time, good advice, and did not suggest spending money when it was not needed. They really took the stress out of the situation and made me feel like they cared and that I was important, rather than just another client. I would absolutely recommend Fullers Family Law and would not hesitate to use them again in the future. Thank you so much Carla and Martin.”

“I instructed Fullers in respect of Divorce and Financial matters. Things were awful for me and I needed things explaining to me clearly so I understood the process and my options. My lawyers, in particular Carla Fishlock, explained everything to me in layman’s terms to ensure I was clear. The Lawyers were very professional, helpful and a calming influence at a very stressful time. Now things are just about concluded I feel so much happier. Everything went much smoother than I expected and that is thanks to the wonderful team at Fullers. They made me feel listened to, understood and empowered by the clear advice. I have already recommended Fullers to someone in a similar situation, and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone dealing with family issues.”
