Lewis qualified in family law in 1988 and trained as a specialist family Mediator in 1999. Up until recently he practiced at a well-established four office Surrey Firm as a senior family lawyer, Wellers Hedleys.
Lewis practises in all areas of family law but has particular experience in matrimonial finance including property and family business issues. He also has experience of multi-jurisdictional divorce and child relocation. Lewis also advises on TOLATA claims between unmarried couples which can run concurrently with Schedule 1 proceedings.
Lewis recognises that the “traditional” solicitor-client relationship of full representation does not suit all. Lewis is happy to give paid advice to assist Litigants in Person with specific or unusual family law queries, draft necessary court documents and statements, give advice regarding proposals for settlement or offer a second, cost effective, opinion.
“Pay as You Go” or one-off representation at court hearings can also be provided at all courts in Surrey and the SE.
Unlike other solicitors, Lewis is willing to accept a limited retainer and with his experience can just “do what is actually needed” as sometimes paying for a lawyer to do everything for them is not actually necessary nor is it affordable.
Lewis is regarded by both his peers in the South East and his longstanding client base as being a straight-talking, perceptive Family Lawyer who adopts a pragmatic, yet principled approach in all family matters.

Lewis is an extremely resourceful, dedicated and supportive divorce lawyer. He is thoughtful, insightful and was my rock when I needed him. You could not wish for better help.– Mrs E
I have known Lewis Hulatt in a professional capacity for some years and he understands the wider picture and our needs as a family. I found him sensitive to what would help me achieve our long-term goals and approachable. He showed himself to be flexible and I never felt pressured to use a legal sledge-hammer to crack a nut of a problem.– Mr H
