About Jasmin

I feel a huge sense of responsibility in helping people through what is often one of the most difficult times in their lives. My aim is to take away the stress from my clients and take a proactive and pragmatic approach to ensure the process is as quick and easy for them as possible whilst still achieving the best possible outcome.

Jasmin advises on a wide range of family law matters arising from the breakdown of relationships or where there are disputes relating to children. These include divorce, financial settlements, domestic abuse, arrangements for children, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements and issues arising between non-married couples. Jasmin has a particular interest in disputes relating to children including cases of internal and international relocation.

Jasmin recognises that every client has their own individual story and unique set of circumstances. All families are different and it is important to take the right approach for that client and focus on their own personal priorities. Jasmin is committed to resolving family matters amicably and constructively and focuses on achieving cost and time effective resolutions.

As well as advising her own clients, Jasmin assists partners Kate Hamilton and James Carroll on their more complex cases.

Jasmin has worked in family law since 2013, starting as a paralegal in a tier 1 firm and qualifying as a solicitor in 2017. She joined Russell-Cooke in 2018.
