Partner & Family Law Solicitor
‘Jennifer Curtis always has a thorough understanding of the case and is emphatic with clients.’
Legal 500, 2020
Jennifer joined Maguire Family Law in June 2013 and was promoted to partner in 2018.
There is a significant international element to Jennifer’s work: it includes matters involving cases of international child abduction and relocation and financial matters with an international element, including enforcement issues and cross jurisdictional cases. Jennifer’s recent cases have involved the US, Australia, Kuwait, Bali, South Africa, Germany, Canada and Japan.
Jennifer is also instructed in matters that involve domestic abuse (including non-molestation orders and occupation orders). One of her strengths is in taking comprehensive instructions on these sensitive matters, providing straightforward but sympathetic advice whilst often having to act quickly and under pressure to safeguard her client’s interests, peace of mind and, ultimately their safety.
Jennifer is able to assimilate complex information and prides herself on her technical drafting skills, whilst balancing this with providing advice to clients in a way which is accessible to them.
Jennifer Curtis has had an article included in the recent book published on behalf of Only Mums & Only Dads. The book aims to help separating parents keep their children’s best interests first. Maguire Family Law are a long-term supporter of the social enterprise OnlyMums & OnlyDads and are a member of their Family Law Panel.
