Testimonials
"You have been absolutely amazing throughout - so focused and sensible and reassuring and sympathetic and with such expertise and attention to detail."

"Thank you again so so much for all your help and support over the past two years. You really were an amazing help to me not just in a legal capacity but the way you dealt with everything with such efficiency (taking a lot of the pressure off of me) and empathy towards me during the whole process. It made what was an awful stressful time so much easier and I will always be grateful to you. If I ever hear of friends needing a divorce lawyer I would have no hesitation in recommending you – you are an amazing lawyer."

"You have been by far the best lawyer I have spoken to about my family law issues and I have recommended you to about 20 colleagues and clients since we first met."

Biography

Jamie has specialised in family law for over 10 years. She spent the first five years of her career at Bross Bennett, before working for over five years at a leading Mayfair firm. She returned to Bross Bennett as a partner in May 2022.

Jamie is experienced in all aspects of private family law, including acting for clients in divorce and children cases and advising unmarried cohabitees. She specialises in complex financial cases, often with an international element or involving issues such as non-matrimonial property, complicated remuneration structures, the valuation of business assets, tax issues and trusts. Jamie is also very experienced in negotiating and advising on high-value nuptial agreements.

Jamie has extensive experience in children disputes, including cases where one parent wishes to relocate with the children. Jamie is also a trained mediator. She mediates on all issues which arise on separation and divorce, including complex financial matters and difficult parenting issues.

Clients value Jamie’s incisiveness, efficiency and attention to detail. Her advice is clear, pragmatic and commercially focused, while centred on the individual client’s particular priorities and long-term objectives. Jamie is passionate about exploring creative alternatives to the traditional court process. At the same time, she is a firm negotiator, and is equally comfortable litigating as she is at achieving settlements via alternative dispute resolution processes. 

Jamie is highly sought after as a commentator on family law issues. She has made regular appearances on ITV’s This Morning show discussing topics including children disputes and cohabitation issues. She has also written articles for FT Money, Spear’s, Family Law journal and Property in Practice.
