Jonathan initially studied a degree in Philosophy and enjoyed a career after university in the public sector including roles at the Home Office, the General Social Care Council and the National College for School Leadership. His desire to work with people and to have a positive impact on their lives then led to a change of direction in his career.
Between 2006 and 2008 Jonathan studied the Graduate Diploma in Law before joining Family Law Group in December 2008 as a paralegal. The following year he took a break from working to complete the Legal Practice Course and returned to Family Law Group in July 2010. Jonathan completed his training contract with the firm and qualified as a Solicitor in March 2012.
Jonathan became a member of Resolution showing his commitment to the constructive resolution of family disputes. Initially he undertook work in all areas of family law and now focuses on resolving the issues arising from the breakdown of relationships, including the finances and arrangements for children. He is also an accredited member of the Law Society's Advanced Family Panel specialising in private law children and domestic violence.
Jonathan became a Senior Associate of Family Law Group in 2017. In 2016 he was featured by ‘VouchedFor’ in the Sunday Times as one of the top 175 solicitors in England and was later awarded a Certificate of Excellence due to the positive reviews he received.
Jonathan is committed to achieving excellence in his role and providing pragmatic and child focused advice to his clients. He has an interest in alternative dispute resolution so that matters can be dealt with outside of Court and is currently training to be a mediator.
Outside of work Jonathan enjoys playing football, walking, biking and camping with his young daughter. He is also a committee member of the New Appeals Organisation, a local charity in Nottingham.

“After having experience of several previous solicitors dealing with the case, Jonathan was the one who managed to focus on the central issues and effectively deal with them. I found him to be extremely approachable, understanding and capable.”
“Jonathan was very professional and second to none. I would highly recommend his services to anyone. He helped sort my divorce and family matters out easily with the outcome I wanted.”
“The nicest solicitor I've ever had the pleasure of meeting, he explained everything in detail was personal and was always quick with responses via phone or email. On court days he was supporting, caring and professional. Nothing is too much trouble for him and you really do feel he has your best interest at heart.”
"The Family Law Team it would appear are my only rock to cling onto at this time - I am lucky I found such diligent and experienced professionals - I am sure that when we get to court your calm approach will allow me to relax and maybe the court will see the facts as opposed the slander and my frustrated reactions."
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all you have done for me since September 17. Your advice and counsel was consistently nothing short of outstanding. You are a consummate professional in your trade and are, in my eyes an ambassador for those in the legal world. I would recommend you in an instant for those who require direction in your field. Your sage, clear and honest counsel was both reassuring and what I needed during an extremely difficult and turbulent time."
