BIO

Jacqueline practices primarily in the area of family and divorce litigation.  She was called to the bar in Nova Scotia in 2009 and in New Brunswick in 2012.  Since moving to New Brunswick, she has established a reputation as being a skilled litigator in the area of family law.  She strives to ensure clients receive mindful and constructive advice that is attuned to the personal and emotional nature of family law.  In additional to regularly appearing in the Court of Queen’s Bench and the Court of Appeal, she also works diligently with client’s to ensure that matters are resolved as quickly and as amicably as possible outside of the courtroom.  In June 2017, Jacqueline was awarded the Young Lawyers Leadership Award from the Saint John Law Society.

She is an active member of the community, participating in organizations focusing on early childhood and the elimination of childhood poverty, causes for which she is very passionate.  Outside of work, Jacqueline is a seasoned half-marathon runner and lives in Saint John with her husband and two young children.
