Family & Divorce Law

Hi I'm Dawn Baker, I'm a partner in the family team at Forbes, by now you will have been able to look at the website so you can see the areas which we cover but why would you come to Forbes.

Well we're friendly and we're approachable, we know what we're talking about and we have been specialists for over 25 years.

I personally am trained as a collaborative lawyer and that means keeping things out of court rather than going to court. We can tailor things to your particular problem and offer you a direct solution.

So if you think we can help you then contact us. Thank you.
