Lynn W. Barrett

Attorney Lynn Barrett

Ms. Barrett earned a B.A. in English with a minor in business from the University of Mississippi in 1991.  She then attended Cumberland School of Law and received her J.D. in 1994.  She was admitted to the South Carolina bar in 1994 and became a Certified Family Law Mediator in 2000.

Since 1995 Lynn has devoted her practice exclusively to family law.  She is an experienced litigator who has handled numerous family law issues at trial and on appeal.  In her years of experience as family court lawyer, she has seen how protracted litigation more often than not has a detrimental impact both financially and emotionally on families and children.  She uses her mediation training and skills in all of her cases in an effort to minimize the financial and emotional damage to families and to reach, whenever possible, a reasonable, fair settlement without litigation.  However, in the event a case cannot be settled, Ms. Barrett has the experience to litigate and argue effectively in Court on behalf of her clients.

Lynn realizes that the issues with which she deals every day are issues that touch the very heart of the people she represents.  She tries to be as honest compassionate, and comforting to her clients as she can while at the same time aggressively representing their interests.  She explains the legal process and offers an up-front evaluation of the legal costs involved in each client's case so that each client knows what to expect at an uncertain time in his or her life.

Lynn recognizes children's need for security and stability throughout the divorce process, and has therefore devoted much of her practice to seeing that children's interests are represented through her work as a Guardian Ad Litem.
