Jennifer Williamson


Family Law Principal Contact

Jennifer joined Wilsons in 2021 as a Partner in the Family team. She is a qualified collaborative lawyer and an accredited specialist with Resolution (the country’s leading family justice association for professionals who work with individuals and families to resolve issues in a constructive way) for her expertise in family law financial and children matters. Jennifer works from the firm’s Salisbury and London offices.

Jennifer has great success helping people deal with changes in their families, whether advance planning to limit or avoid uncertainty, or resolving problems following relationship breakdown. Jennifer strives to help her clients deal with these issues with dignity, always ensuring they understand the legal issues which arise and how they can be resolved.

Jennifer represents clients from a wide range of backgrounds, from professionals (including accountants, actuaries, city traders, GPs, surgeons, hospital doctors, teachers, to name but a few), business people, sports people and homemakers. Jennifer acts for clients living, and with assets, in the UK and Channel Islands, as well as for clients based, and with assets, abroad. 


Jennifer favours identifying and narrowing issues at an early stage, to adopt a pragmatic approach maximising the likelihood of resolving her client’s legal difficulties in a timely manner, limiting financial and emotional costs so far as possible. Jennifer embraces the full range of methods (including collaborative law, mediation and other types of Alternative Dispute Resolution, ADR) available to resolve matters, and helps people to select the most suitable way forward, avoiding court proceedings in many matters.

Outside of work

Jennifer lives in Winchester and enjoys exploring the surrounding countryside. She enjoys various sports, whether as an enthusiastic football supporter or trying to play golf!
