Jacqueline has over 12 years’ experience as a family solicitor, and she has a robust, yet sensitive approach to advising and representing clients.
Jacqueline is a Resolution trained and accredited solicitor, with an additional qualification in Collaborative Law, meaning that she can offer clients the option of resolving matters without going to Court.
Jacqueline has lived in Worthing since 1976, and her great grandfather’s name can be found on the war memorial in Chapel Road. She trained as a solicitor with a high profile law firm in south London. A highlight of her training was clerking for criminal QC Michael Mansfield, on an eleven week trial at the central criminal court.

Qualified as a solicitor in 1998. Accredited as a specialist family lawyer in 2007. Made an associate at Bennett Griffin in 2010. Qualified as a collaborative lawyer in 2010.
Children’s matters: residence and prohibited steps orders were made in support of the client’s concerns regarding the other parent’s inability to protect the children’s welfare. The children’s whereabouts were secured as a result of the emergency applications being granted within days.
Financial matters: financial remedy proceedings in which the assets which were of most value to the client were preserved, including inherited wealth; the family business, and a pension.

…Your practical and down to earth common sense kept me on track. That is so helpful in divorce, because it is easy to become emotionally stressed so that you lose a sense of proportion. The outcome I have for myself…is everything I could have asked for under the circumstances. I am so happy now to go forward onto a better future…
Just wanted to say thank you for all the help you have given me in getting me through my divorce.
