Billal Malik

Family disputes, particularly where children are involved, need to be handled differently from other types of legal dispute.

Such disputes require a practical, outcome-focussed approach that takes account of the interests of children, and takes advantage, wherever possible, of any compromise on offer.

Billal is an experienced family law barrister. He can help clients with any kind of family-related matter, including:

  • Child arrangements orders (First Hearings, Dispute Resolution Appointments & Final Hearings)
  • Fact-finding hearings
  • Divorce proceedings
  • Financial proceedings (Financial Dispute Resolution hearings and Final Hearings) 
  • Appeals against decisions of the Family Court 

My approach

Approaching a barrister or solicitor for help makes most people very nervous. This is usually because they worry about the financial cost of legal advice, and because the thought of complicated legal procedures makes them feel they have no control over their problem.

Billal’s approach is simple and transparent. The first telephone consultation is free. If you wish to progress your query and instruct Billal, he will quote you a fixed fee for the work, and will give you his direct contact details, so that you can contact him at any point and ask for an update on your case.

What my clients say

To see more of what my previous clients say about my work, see the Google reviews left on my chambers' webpage. A few samples are below:

Billal was incredibly meticulous throughout the process of a legal fact finding hearing. His representation within a complex case like this was invaluable. He displayed sensitivity and was able to devise a case with his legal acumen despite being instructed at short notice. I would not hesitate in contacting Demstone Chambers in the future, should the need arise as I am more than satisfied with the service Mahvish Safir
