Jo is a solicitor in the family team supporting clients through changes to their family structure. Her experience includes complex finances, child arrangements, child welfare and child relocation (for married and unmarried couples), divorce, domestic abuse, pre- and post-nuptial and cohabitation agreements.

Much of Jo’s work features international elements, and her cases have been determined through the Family and High Courts, or settled through lawyer-led negotiations and alternative dispute resolution. Her primary focus when providing legal support is always to adapt to the client’s particular needs, and to ensure the welfare of any children. Where it has been possible to achieve a favourable settlement without the need for court intervention, Jo works hard to achieve this for her clients.

Jo is a trained family mediator and is working towards accreditation with the Family Mediation Council. She is a member of Resolution, a community focussed on promoting constructive approaches to family issues that consider the needs of the whole family.
