Jessica has worked for Elliot Mather since 2005 with the exception of a short 8 month departure.
She has been working as a fee earner in the Family Law Department since 2009 and is currently studying at Sheffield City College in the evenings though the Charted Institute of Legal Executives. Jessica has currently completed Level 3 as an Associate and hopes to qualify as a Fellow in 2020.
Jessica covers most areas of the family law to include Separation, Divorce, Child Arrangements, Injunctions by way of Non-Molestation and Occupation Orders and Change of Name Deeds.
Jessica has a real passion for Family Law and supporting families through difficult times.
Jessica is also a member of Resolution which means she will always try to negotiate an amicable solution to family problems exploring alternatives to litigation e.g. mediation. In the unfortunate event where Court Proceedings prove necessary Jessica’s honest and “firm but fair” approach will ensure the best case is put forward to the court to achieve the best possible outcome for the client.
Jessica has lived the majority of her life in the Matlock area and enjoys live music. She is an animal lover and takes part in Ashgate Hospice Woofs and Wellies Walk every year.
