Jackie qualified as a solicitor in 1987 and has specialised in various aspects of Family Law since then.

Jackie has been a member of the Association of Lawyers for Children and Resolution for many years and seeks to ensure that the voice of her clients are heard in the court process.
Jackie’s other interests include badminton, racquetball, bird-watching and following the ups and the downs of Welsh Rugby.
