Marwa Hadi-Barnes

Senior Associate Solicitor

Marwa is a family law specialist, and has worked in this area of law for more than 14 years. She joined the Lewis Denley team in 2021 having spent the previous 7 years working for a regional, top 100 firm in Horsham.

Marwa supports clients on all aspects of family law, including divorce, financial and children matters. As well as her wide experience in these areas of family work, Marwa is also a specialist in “police divorce”, dealing with occupational pension pots of in excess of £1 million.  Marwa has regularly contributed to various police publications.

Marwa adopts a friendly, calming approach. Understanding what a stressful time this is for clients, she works hard to provide an excellent client service during this difficult time.

She is a member of Resolution, a national organisation of family lawyers committed to a constructive and non-confrontational approach to family law matters.  However, where a more robust approach is required, Marwa is a firm litigator with extensive experience of the court process.

Marwa’s work attracts positive feedback from clients and peers alike. She is also recommended in the Legal 500 and Chambers UK directories.

The 2021 edition of the Legal 500 comments that “Marwa Hadi-Barnes is an excellent solicitor.  She is thorough and always give very practical advice.”

Chambers UK has said “Marwa is well regarded for her work on divorce and financial remedy.  A source describes her as informative, pleasant and kind.  She was on my side while maintaining a professional distance – a perfect balance” and “she is very efficient and good at giving realistic advice” say interviewees.

As an expert in family law Marwa has written for various family law publications. Outside of work she spends most of her time running around after her toddler.  Before that, she enjoyed travel, Les Mills classes and dining out.
