Jennifer joined Maguire Family Law in June 2013 and was promoted to partner in 2018.
Jennifer advises clients in relation to all aspects of family relationships, including divorce and associated financial matters, issues arising in relation to children and the drafting of pre- and post-nuptial agreements
There is a significant international element to Jennifer’s work: it includes matters involving cases of international child abduction and relocation and financial matters with an international element, including enforcement issues and cross jurisdictional cases. Jennifer’s recent cases have involved the US, Australia, Kuwait, Bali, South Africa, Germany, Canada and Japan.
Jennifer is also instructed in matters that involve domestic abuse (including non-molestation orders and occupation orders). One of her strengths is in taking comprehensive instructions on these sensitive matters, providing straightforward but sympathetic advice whilst often having to act quickly and under pressure to safeguard her client’s interests, peace of mind and, ultimately their safety.
Jennifer is able to assimilate complex information and prides herself on her technical drafting skills, whilst balancing this with providing advice to clients in a way which is accessible to them.
