Jessica Fletcher-Hall

Family and Childcare Solicitor

Jessica is a Solicitor in the Care Department at Askews Legal and specialises in public law matters, assisting parents and other family members where there is Local Authority involvement with their family due to safeguarding concerns.  This includes attending Child Protection Conferences with clients, representing clients at Pre-Proceedings Meetings and representing clients during Court Proceedings, including where the Local Authority are seeking to remove child(ren) from their parent/guardian’s care.

Jessica also has experience in assisting clients with regards to private children disputes – including applications for a Child Arrangements Order, Prohibited Steps Order and Specific Issue Order – and in relation to domestic abuse matters and in particular obtaining protective injunctions for clients.

Jessica is very passionate about the work that she undertakes and is fully committed to her clients and helping them through what is an incredibly challenging time in their lives.

After graduating from Sheffield Hallam University in 2011 with a First Class Honours Law Degree, Jessica went on to complete the Legal Practice Course with Distinction at the College of Law, Birmingham. Jessica then began her legal career working as a Legal Secretary at a local Firm in 2013 before commencing her Training Contact there and subsequently qualifying as a Solicitor in May 2018.  Save for 6 months spent in a Conveyancing Department during her Training Contract, Jessica has spent the entirety of her legal career working within the area of family law and primarily within the area of Care Proceedings.

In 2019, Jessica was a finalist for the Coventry and Warwickshire Young Professional of the Year – Legal Sector. Jessica has also been on the committee for the Warwickshire Junior Lawyers Division (WJLD) and was even elected President of the WJLD in 2018.

Outside of work, Jessica enjoys attending the theatre, reading anything from moderns to classics (but particularly Harry Potter) and spending time with her family, friends and two dogs.

I engaged the services of Miss Reardan, Askews Legal LLP, to help me reach a divorce related financial agreement acceptable to the court. This included the completion of a financial order and gaining approval of that order by the court. I dealt with the court directly on other aspects of the divorce. Miss Reardan was happy to work with me in this way.All my dealings with Miss Reardan were during the pandemic which meant we never met face to face, mostly communicating by email, letters and the very occasional telephone conversation after an initial video call. This worked very well. I found the advice given by Karen to be clear and very helpful. Questions were generally answered promptly, the very few exceptions occurring when she was supporting other clients in court which is totally understandable and acceptable. The pension on divorce expert engaged by Miss Reardan to calculate an appropriate pension split was equally efficient, cooperative and clear in their communication and final report.Miss Reardan and other Askews staff have always been very polite, straight forward and supportive towards me. Payment was requested and paid monthly, with an updated estimate every month showing what the likely overall spend would be. I found this worked well with no shock at the end.I employed Askews Legal LLP services after seeing an advert saying they specialised in the financial aspects relating to divorce. Overall, I am very pleased with their services and would recommend them to others in similar circumstances to mine.
