Our dedicated team of Specialist solicitors are able to support and help victims of domestic abuse and their children to get the protection that they need from their partners, ex partners or other family members.
Our solicitors are accredited by Resolution as specialising in providing advice and representation in situations of abuse as well as having many years of experience in this area of work.
The Family law Act 1996 is the legislation which provides protection for victims of domestic violence and our experienced team of solicitors can help anyone who needs protection, which can be put in place urgently and without the other person knowing if necessary. If you’ve been affected by domestic abuse, you aren’t alone.
Our experienced Solicitors are there to help you to take the necessary steps you need to protect you and your children, if you have them.
You can access experienced legal representation, possibly with Legal Aid funding, and take action with an injunction very quickly.

My name is Adrian Coggon and I'm a Director and Family Law specialist at John Barkers. We understand how difficult it can be to reach out for help when you are a victim of domestic abuse, our friendly and supportive team are ready to advise and support every step of the way.
Domestic abuse is any kind of controlling, threatening, coercive, or violent behaviour between people who are or have been intimate partners or family members. It can happen to anyone, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, sexuality, or social background. If you're being abused, it's not your fault – and you're not alone.
If you feel concerned about domestic abuse, reach out for help. We specialize in such cases and can provide you with both advice and support. You can also call a confidential helpline for additional assistance.
If you're in immediate danger, call the police on 999. If you're not in immediate danger but need to talk to someone, call the National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 2000 247.
