Jennie’s clients value her energy and passion. She brings a thorough, yet efficient approach, ensuring her clients are always kept abreast of all available options.

Enjoying the challenge that the constant flux of family law brings, Jennie is seen as a formidable expert in all things family law; regularly speaking at events and writing commentary for family court procedure and the Property (Relationships) Act 1976.

An unrelenting and strategic advocate for her clients, Jennie is lovely, but lethal.

Jennie is a Certified Fellow of the International Academy of Family Lawyers. She has been ranked by Doyle’s Guide (Australasia’s independent legal directory of leading lawyers) as one of New Zealand's relationship property and family law leading and pre-eminent lawyers consecutively since 2019. Her team at Haigh Lyon has also consistently ranked by Doyle’s as a Top Tier Law Firm for family and relationship property.

On the inside she’s the go-to for in-depth knowledge and application of family law legislation and procedures.

On the outside, Jennie is a self-described ‘fitness freak’. Whether it’s up at 5am to go to the gym or running round after her two small boys in the evenings, she’s all about being active.
