She regularlarly undertakes high net worth cases and has extensive experience of dealing with family companies, trusts and pensions and enjoys the forensic challenge of tracing hidden assets. Alongside ancillary relief in both divorce and civil partnership dissolution cases, she also regularly undertakes cohabitee property disputes under ToLATA, Inheritance Act claims and applications for financial provision for children under Schedule 1 of the Children Act.

Prior to moving to part time working, her strong ancillary relief practice was recognised in Legal 500.

She has a small, complementary, chancery practice dealing with charity law and ecclesiastical law cases. She was recently one of a number of members of chambers who together wrote the Case Law Resource Guide for the new Northern Ireland Charity Commission.

She was appointed as amicus curi in an ancillary relief case with two litigants in person where the parties had acted in breach of trust regarding funds to which their minor children were beneficially entitled.

Whilst having a very practical approach to her cases, Jacqueline enjoys the academic study of law, completing her LLM part time whilst in practice and being the author/co-author of a number of published articles on both family law and ecclesiastical law topics. She has also lectured locally and nationally on a range of legal issues, both to legal and non-legal audiences.
