We are Committed to Your Success


Change is possible.

The good news is that you don’t have to do it alone.

When you are not living the life you want, you do have options.

  • You May Be Worried About Conflict
  • Troubled about Rules and Requirements
  • Even Concerned that Someone Could Take Advantage of Your Position

We will help you get past the obstacles holding you back:

  • Work Past the Fear
  • Learn How to Protect Yourself
  • Overcome Legal Challenges

Your life is unique and complex.

You deserve to have a plan created specifically with your needs in mind.

Some attorneys handle all cases with the same approach. As a result, your needs and goals will get lost in the process and you may be seen as a case file instead of a person. However, at Batley Family Law, we work as a Team and our actions and advice are based on you. We see every client as a vital part of this process and will value your input. We will listen to ensure that your questions are answered, and we understand your concerns.


We would love to talk to you.

While we travel the same road, we all start from a different place. We bring along different baggage. And we have our own special destination at the end.

We develop a plan for your unique journey. We take the time to listen to learn where you come from and where you need to go. We stay by your side every step of the way.

Find out more about your journey and explain how we could help.

  • Let us know your personal story
  • Our job is to help you reach the goals you did not even know were possible
  • We have helped many people through life transitions
  • Together we will discuss strategies and potential hurdles
