Who gets the dog in the divorce: a tall tail
Victoria Walker | 07.06.2019
I specialise exclusively in family law and help clients resolve issues related to the breakdown of their relationship.
Many of my clients are in the process of separating or going through a divorce and are looking for help to resolve the division of their assets and financial provision for their children.
I regularly act for parents where there is a dispute about how much time they spend with their children, who their children live with, or where there is a dispute about key issues such as schooling.
Some of my clients are seeking help in cases involving the permanent overseas relocation of children as well as temporary removal for holidays.
My clients tell me that they like my practical, no-nonsense advice, understanding what their key objectives are and keeping costs in proportion to the issue.
I empower clients during one of the most turbulent periods of their lives and help them come out the other side in a better situation.
After qualifying as a solicitor 15 years ago, I have worked in London since 2007 and joined Moore Blatch as a partner in 2018.

"Victoria has acted for me since 2014 following a recommendation from a mutual friend. She understood my predicaments and gave me very sound advice, she is well versed in her area of expertise and I did not hesitate to instruct her again in 2017 to start proceedings. She is incredibly supportive and was always on hand to answer my numerous queries very patiently to bring clarity into a very emotive situation. I would very gladly recommend Victoria to others and would use her services again in the future." Client
"She is amazing! She is very smart, very client-focused and switched on." Market Commentator
"I have been a continuous client of Victoria’s since 2014. Victoria has a plethora of skills in particular she is able to take the emotion and stress out of the situation in front of her whilst finding the best solution, often the best emotionally intelligent solution. Victoria is excellent at de-escalating the aggressive solicitors on the other side." Client
"Victoria has been helpful to me in being a calm, approachable and entirely affable individual to deal with, making it feel less like the formal process that the law can represent to inexperienced people like myself. She has helped me see the wood from the trees, in sorting through the context and detail of events to identify what is material and significant and what is not. Importantly I’ve felt like I’m being treated like a human by a professional who has adapted their style to my needs and helped me stay on the straight and narrow." Client
"Victoria is hugely competent and knows about procedure, she stands by her client and is a find in these shark infested waters." Client
"I was very fortunate that Victoria handled my case. From our first meeting I felt I was in safe hands and I trusted her judgement every step of the way. Going through a divorce was an unsettling process for me. Victoria contained my anxieties by her strong leadership, guidance, and expertise; I cannot praise her enough. Thank you, Victoria, for all your support!" Client
