Job Title: Solicitor
Family - Manchester
Joe qualified as a Solicitor in September 2016 and joined JMW in December 2017.
Joe has specialised in Family law since qualification. He has experience assisting on a range of matters, including:
- Divorce and associated financial matters, both on a voluntary basis and within court proceedings;
- Cohabitation disputes for unmarried couples;
- Complex disputes regarding children, often with an international element, such as relocation or abduction.
Joe also has an interest in legal issues surrounding fertility and surrogacy arrangements.
Before qualifying as a Solicitor, Joe gained extensive experience in youth work. He was responsible for overseeing the activities in the North of England for the British wing of an international youth organisation, as well as training leadership volunteers. From this experience, he developed an empathetic and sensitive manner when dealing with issues of children’s welfare, particularly with their parents. This is an approach he always seeks to maintain when advising clients on family law matters.
Outside of work, Joe is passionate about travel and music. He is a self-taught (but not very good) guitarist. He is also a season ticket holder at Manchester United.
