Barbara Marques

Trainee Solicitor


  • Family Department

Barbara works closely with Jo Shortland in the family team and has experience in many areas of family law, including child arrangements and complex financial claims arising on divorce. She has also assisted in successful injunction proceedings, providing invaluable support to clients and counsel at court; and drafted substantial witness statements.

Barbara is a member of Resolution; she understands the emotional and practical challenges involved when relationships breakdown and is focused on reducing the antagonism in family proceedings. She encourages our clients to act with compassion so that they can move on from their divorce constructively and achieve fair and agreeable future arrangements.
