I am a family law specialist having qualified as a solicitor in 2007.
I have worked in the Sussex area since 2013.
Prior to joining Mayo Wynne Baxter, I was head of the family law department at a firm in Horsham. I have also previously worked at a regional top 100 firm.
I support clients on all aspects of family law, including divorce, financial and children matters.
I adopt a friendly, calming approach and understanding what a stressful time this is for individuals, I work hard to provide an excellent client service during this difficult time.
I am a member of Resolution, a national organisation of family lawyers committed to a constructive and non-confrontational approach to family law matters.
However, where a more robust approach is required, I am a firm litigator with extensive experience of the court process.
My work attracts positive feedback from clients and peers alike. I have previously been recommended in the Legal 500 and Chambers UK directories.
The 2021 edition of the Legal 500 comments that “Marwa Hadi-Barnes is an excellent solicitor. She is thorough and always give very practical advice.”
Chambers UK has said “Marwa is well regarded for her work on divorce and financial remedy. A source describes her as informative, pleasant and kind. She was on my side while maintaining a professional distance – a perfect balance” and “she is very efficient and good at giving realistic advice” say interviewees.
In my spare time, when I am not keeping my young son occupied, I try to fit in city breaks, Les Mills classes and the odd gig.
