In the court room, Jacqueline was tenacious, smart and unbeatable. She out-researched, out-played and out-witted the opposing counsel and witnesses, and was tremendously successful in exposing falsehoods and presenting a truthful picture of events in court.

Despite coming up against lawyers from a large global firm specializing in motor accident claims, she managed to get a positive outcome for us, where the High Court held that we were only 10% liable for the accident, which was the lowest ever percentage given to a cyclist in a road traffic accident.

Children Caught In The Crossfire – Co-parenting During A Divorce
