Jackie Mensah Is Back…

We are delighted to announce that Jacqueline Mensah has returned to the Family Department following her recent absence on maternity leave. Jacqueline qualified as a Solicitor in 1998 and gained accreditation as a specialist family lawyer in 2007. In addition to her specialist skills as a family law Solicitor, Jacqueline is a Resolution trained Collaborative Lawyer and is able to offer this process to clients as an alternative to Court proceedings.

We pride ourselves on being one of the few firms in West Sussex to offer clients alternatives to dispute resolution in the niche areas of Mediation and Collaborative assistance.

Jackie Gifford’s family law specialist expertise is in financial cases and children issues. As a Resolution Mediator, her understanding of the law and experience can be invaluable in the process.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) has grown in popularity and there is widespread acceptance among the public and legal profession of the benefits it can offer. Parties involved in family breakdown are often keen to achieve resolution of their differences in a fair way with greater control over the outcome, in preference to the traditional, often timely and expensive, route of litigation through the Court process. Indeed, following the Family Law Reforms, it is now a requirement for parties to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAMS) before launching into Court proceedings.

If you would like to find out more about the Collaborative process and whether it is right for you, please contact Jackie Mensah on 01903 229903/229912. If your interest is in Mediation, please call Jackie Gifford on 01903 229903

Our specialist and experienced Family team, headed by Richard Adams (an accredited specialist Family Lawyer) is able to offer comprehensive, advice, sensitive guidance, assistance and representation in all areas of Family law. We are here to help
