Kate Symms

Family Law Barrister


Welcome to my Website

Hello and thanks for visiting. My name is Kate Symms and I am a Barrister specialising in all areas of family law.

I was called to the Bar in 1991 and have more than 20 years of experience in helping people with the difficulties than can arise from family breakdown. I have appeared in a very large number of cases from the straightforward to the most complex and have a friendly approach which is appreciated by people in stressful situations. I have represented parents and grandparents in many difficult situations and am experienced in dealing with same-sex couples and the dissolution of civil partnerships.

Please use the menu to find out more about my work.

Most of my cases come through solicitors but I am also qualified to accept instructions directly from the public through the Bar Council’s Public Access arrangements; you can find out details about that here.

A recent testimonial:

Kate, yesterday you took over the court room and in the words of an X Factor Judge ‘made the stage your own’ ! In all seriousness your professionalism and preparation was exemplary, you engaged the Court and basically ran the room. We are very fortunate that we were able to have you alongside us, thank you.” JD
