Jo specialises in all aspects of Family Law including divorce proceedings, resolving financial issues which arise upon separation and divorce, resolving disputes in respect of children, cohabitation issues and pre marital and cohabitation agreements.
Jo has a wide breadth of experience of all aspects of Family Law, with a particular interest and specialism in complex financial matters and specifically those with an agricultural, farming business or rural background.
Jo is an active member of the rural community and she understands and advises upon the idiosyncrasies of family and rural matters and embraces the fact that such cases regularly need a bespoke approach to achieve a workable solution and that litigation rarely provides such flexibility and she has developed her alternative dispute resolution approach including the use of round table meetings and collaborative law to achieve the best workable solution.
