Jenni Gear

Senior Associate

Jenni has practised primarily in family law since qualification and advises clients on a full range of family law matters including separation, divorce, dissolution of civil partnerships, cohabitation, child contact and residence disputes and pre-nuptial agreements. She is based in our Shetland office and has a wide breadth of sheriff court experience, having previously worked in Edinburgh and Perth. Given her experience, she is well placed to advise clients honestly and efficiently about the factors to consider when resolving their issues and potential litigation.  The benefit of having a family law lawyer in Shetland means clients do not have to travel far for expert legal advice. A further advantage is that there is access to a family team with a complete range of expertise at the client's disposal.

As well as a practitioner, Jenni is a court-appointed Child Welfare Reporter and Curator at Lerwick Sheriff Court.
