Judith is a divorce solicitor with Woolley & Co, based in Wells, Somerset. She has over 20 years’ experience in all aspects of family law and was head of the family department at her previous firm in Cornwall, where she dealt with divorce, children matters, financial issues, co-habitation disputes and domestic violence.
Legal 500 names Judith as one of their Recommended Lawyers for Family Law in the South West. They note that Judith is ‘a skilled solicitor who is very good at understanding what the client is going through’.
“I adhere very strongly to the principles laid down by the family law organisation, Resolution. These promote minimising conflict in family disputes and encouraging solutions that meet the needs of the whole family.
I have a particular interest and expertise in financial issues arising from family breakdown and am a Resolution-accredited specialist both in this area and in private children law matters. I also have a good reputation for acting for grandparents in disputes relating to contact with their grandchildren. Since joining Woolley & Co I have dealt with many cases for British expats and cases where there is a question about which international jurisdiction may apply.
My clients tell me that they welcome my straightforward, friendly approach and ability to explain what can often be complex issues in a clear and easily understandable way. I take a flexible approach and am happy to arrange out of office hours appointments to suit your needs.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family in Wells and Cornwall.”
