Nicola Walker



I lead the Irwin Mitchell's family law team in Bristol and have been a family law specialist for over 20 years with extensive experience in both the financial and Children Act litigation that can arise out of relationship breakdown. I am also collaboratively trained and have built up a substantial practice in this alternative way to resolve the issues faced on separation.

I believe that expert advice is essential to enable separating couples to deal with the practical and legal issues that face them on separation in the most effective manner. I am particularly aware that clients are very conscious of costs in these difficult economic times and am always happy to work with them to provide a legal service that suits their financial circumstances.


Praised for her "sensible and straightforward" manner; "She has a calm and unflappable presence, and is always available. Clients find her really reassuring and a constant support.  - Chambers & Partners 2017

Sources describe her as “highly intelligent and highly focused,” highlighting her “strong and well-deserved reputation.” - Chambers & Partners 2016

She favours a collaborative approach, and garners praise for her "ability to turn legal terminology into easily understood language." - Chambers & Partners 2015

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I enjoy the constructive aspects of advising client in difficult times, helping them with their options in moving forward and resolving the challenging circumstances that they face.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I enjoy being a member of a national law team with all the support and resources that this brings. The Birmingham team has lots of local knowledge that enables us to provide our clients with the best possible service. 

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Away from the office I am kept very busy by my own family I am the mother of teenage boys and therefore have a second career as a taxi driver and cash machine!

When I have time to myself I enjoy running and gardening and simply spending time with my friends and family.
