Lisa Smith
Consultant Barrister

As a Consultant Barrister at Fullers Family Law, I specialise in representing clients in a wide range of matrimonial matters, including divorce, separation, cohabitation disputes, child-related issues, financial matters and pre-nuptial arrangements.

Since becoming a barrister in 1994, I have worked in the Bedford area, for national family law firms and in a specialist family barristers’ chambers in London.

Throughout my career, I have concentrated on providing advice to clients on the legal aspects of marriage and family relationships. I always aim to resolve matters through negotiation and discussions, however, where necessary I can use my considerable experience in representing clients in court proceedings to robustly defend or advance my client's position.

I pride myself on being friendly, approachable, tenacious, and dedicated to achieving the best outcomes for my clients.

With my experience I am well placed to advise on the potential outcomes of situations, costs implications and risks should a matter proceed to court.

I am aware that clients come to me at what can be a deeply upsetting time in their lives, which is why I always go above and beyond to ensure that the process is as painless, swift, and as cost-effective as possible in the circumstances.

My job satisfaction stems from knowing that I have helped clients make well-informed, meaningful decisions that will have a beneficial impact on theirs and their families' lives moving forward.

As a barrister who is deeply committed to dealing with matters in a constructive and non-confrontational way, I am a member of both Resolution and the Family Law Bar Association.
