Sarah Martin Head of Family Law at Barr Ellison

Sarah Martin

Family Law Partner

Sarah is Head of the Family Law Team at Barr Ellison and has significant experience as a divorce and family law solicitor. A specialist in dealing with financial claims that arise upon relationship breakdown, Sarah frequently acts for high net worth individuals with extensive trusts, business and pension assets.

I cannot thank Sarah and her team enough for the understanding and compassion through a very traumatic time in my life. They were always on hand to help me put things back into perspective.
Angela Dickinson

For those seeking to preserve property assets or pre-acquired wealth upon marriage or setting up home together, Sarah provides comprehensive advice in respect of wealth protection options, including pre- and post-nuptial agreements and living together agreements.

Sarah, quite simply, thank you for helping me to make everything happen.
Ms Habbick

Supported by an in-house team, Sarah is also appointed as a professional Trustee in respect of family and personal injury trusts.

Sarah deals with arrangements for children on a relationship breakdown, providing sensible and practical advice and assistance to those seeking to secure a solution whether that is by way of agreement between parents or contested child arrangements proceedings, applications to remove from the jurisdiction, prohibitive steps or specific issue orders.

Thank you, Sarah, and all involved. You’ve been really great through all of this. I can’t imagine any divorce is totally straight forward but when things were a little stressful you and the team got it sorted.
Mr Northrop

Sarah qualified as a solicitor in 1999 and is a member of Resolution. Sarah joined Barr Ellison in 2015 from a Band 1 (Chambers) black country firm and became a Partner in August 2017.

I am extremely grateful to Sarah Martin and her team for myself and my family. I was so fortunate to have Sarah as my solicitor. She was professional, thoughtful, listened with care and of course offered excellent advice. She couldn’t have worked harder on my behalf in difficult circumstances and over a short period of time. I could not recommend anyone as much, and would advise looking no further than Sarah Martin.
