Covering London
  About Yemah Barlay:.

Motivated and self-driven. I practiced as a  Barrister for a couple of years post training . Before concentrating on law centre / NGO advisory work . I have 17 experience in advisory work . My area of speciality is family law. My experience and proven track record in family law includes : divorce, ancillary and financial relief. Domestic violence: non molestation and occupation orders. Breach of orders .Tolata claims, case strategy, court bundle, managing cross examination. Applications under the Human Rights Act 98. Child arrangements, Attending and supporting clients as a Mackenzie friend in court.

I switched from the Bar to advisory work to concentrate on raising a family. Raising a family has enhanced my skills in different areas. Giving me a wider experience of life and the challenges that families face .Exposing me to a deeper understanding of people in society. I am now able to approach societal issues from a more rounded, holistic, pragmatic, conflict management /non contentious stand point. Children and child related matters are my passion. I believe with my holistic experience Ican deliver excellent results. As well as a client focused service.

These particular skills have not only been through practicing as a Barrister but also achieved through judicial training. Sitting as a Judicial lay Magistrate. As well as through various face to face advocacy advisory work in various legal institutions and NGO’s.

I am happy to work as a Mackenzie friend because I feel that I am doing so much more than a court hearing .I am also providing honest , listening skills empathy in a non-judgemental manner.
