Colin Mitchell Family Solicitor and Collaborative Family Lawyer
Colin graduated from Exeter University with a degree in law in 1996. Returning to his home county of Dorset to train and qualify as a solicitor in 1999. Since then, Colin has worked for several well known Dorset high street firms. Gaining a wealth of experience in all aspects of Family Law. He joined Harold G Walker Solicitors in 2017 as a specialist family solicitor and collaborative lawyer.
As a family solicitor Colin is a member of Resolution (the UK’s leading family lawyer’s organisation) and has trained as a Collaborative Family Lawyer. This enables him to adopt a very holistic approach. Helping couples move on from their relationship breakdown, positively and constructively whenever possible. This often involves helping clients work with other specialists, such as pension experts, financial advisers and counsellors.
However, whilst going to court is a last resort, Colin recognises that taking a case to the Family Court is sometimes necessary when a robust legal approach must be taken. When this option is necessary, Colin will often undertake advocacy himself. Working with local barristers to achieve the best outcome for his clients.
Based in the Christchurch office, he covers all areas of Bournemouth and Poole. Regularly attending the Harold G Walker legal advice clinics to assist the needs of prospective clients within the community.
Outside of work, Colin enjoys spending time with his family and walking their pet dog in the Purbecks and along local beaches.
