    Working with Jacqui is a delight. She is sensitive to the needs of the lay client and understanding of the needs of the children concerned, yet brings to the process an objective intelligence and knowledge of her subject that is superb. In court she is both fearless and persuasive to the great benefit of her clients and their children.
