With over 18 years' experience in financial settlements and child arrangements on divorce, Jane provides strong, practical advice with a particular ability for settling contentious financial cases.
Jane has experience in handling complex high net asset cases, including matters where there is an overseas property issue offshore trust or farming element. Jane has close links with financial professions who are able to provide appropriate valuation, accountancy and tax advice.
With a preference for negotiating settlements without recourse to the court system, Jane is dedicated in to securing the best possible results for her clients and their families. She has a conciliatory but firm approach with a keen focus on resolving disputes in the most cost effective manner. Jane strongly believes the first route to settlement should be by attempting to achieve an amicable resolution but equally has a wealth of experience in taking matters through the court system when a more structured approach is necessary.
As a result of her very "hands on" approach Jane enjoys exceptionally positive relationships with her clients and is always prepared to go the extra mile.
Jane is a member of the Law Society's family panel and has been for many years a member of Resolution - a solicitors association which promotes constructive outcomes to family matters. Jane was a founding member of the Kirklees and Calderdale Collaborative Law Group and is a member of other Collaborative law groups in West and North Yorkshire.
Jane is a trained Collaborative Lawyer and is committed to promoting a non confrontational and constructive approach which understands the needs of the client and how best to move the matter at their pace and in a way which they feel they are in control of their own decision making.
