Jessica's reflections on working at Berry Family Law:
  • I chose to work in family law because it involves helping people with issues that are most important to them. I help my clients work through their separation to reach agreements that best suit their family.
  • It is very rewarding to see the transformation in my clients from when I first meet with them to the completion of their legal matter. 

Jessica is passionate about family law and offers her clients an empathetic and caring approach. She is committed to achieving the best possible outcome for her clients and has a particular focus on ensuring that the best interests of the children have been met.

Jessica understands the complexities of family breakdown, having worked in post separation services since 2006. Her aim is to provide clear advice and empower her clients with the knowledge to make well informed decisions through what is often the most difficult period in their lives. She is able to offer her clients alternative and creative options to resolve matters without the need to go to Court.

Jessica obtained a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Chinese (Mandarin) and Sociology, from Latrobe University. After completing a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice at Leo Cussen Centre for Law she was admitted to practice in February 2012. She has worked exclusively in family law since then and has been a volunteer at the Women’s Legal Service Victoria since May 2013.
