Jessica studied Civil Engineering at the University of Bristol before converting to Law, completed her training contract at Howard Kennedy and qualifying into the family team, where she acts on a variety of family and matrimonial matters for wealthy clients.
The majority of Jessica's matters relate to the establishment or breakdown of married or unmarried families, and Jessica is a specialist in the financial side of these issues with a growing practice in children matters. She regularly drafts and negotiates complex pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements. She is often involved in fertility law matters and other cases relating to creating families, including surrogacy parental order applications and adoptions. Jessica prioritises early settlement wherever possible but is able to run a litigious matter with confidence and control.
Jessica enjoys working with external experts to provide a holistic approach to her clients' cases when appropriate to do so. She is experienced in acting on cases involving addiction and other mental health issues and she is comfortable acting opposite and managing individuals who display narcissistic or sociopathic tendencies.
Jessica has written and contributed to articles for various publications and she is a member of Resolution.
Jessica plays the bass guitar in Howard Kennedy's resident rock band, Take It To The Bridge.
