Marilyn Stowe

Mariyln Stowe, Family Law Attorney

Marilyn Stowe, one of the UK’s most sought after divorce lawyers, has acted for aristocrats, footballers’ wives and rock stars’ spouses.  Nicknamed “The Barracuda” for her tenacity, she specializes in cases involving assets of between $700,000 and $140 million.

In the UK Marilyn Stowe is well known for her family law expertise and for helping to overturn a notorious miscarriage of justice. Volunteering her assistance on a pro bono basis because she felt instinctively that something “was not right”, Stowe unearthed previously undisclosed medical evidence that freed Sally Clark, a mother jailed for life after being wrongly convicted of murdering her babies.

Marilyn Stowe is a married mother of one.
