Simpson Sissons and Brooke

Janet Simpson

Qualifying in 1983, I am a leading family law specialist with almost 30 years experience of all aspects of family law so whatever problem you may have, I can help you so that you can get on with your life.

I place particular emphasis on dealing with complex financial matters arising from the breakdown of relationships including issues with businesses, trusts, property abroad and pensions; often safeguarding assets against disposal. I am one of only a few solicitors accredited to deal with such complex matters by Resolution, the Family Lawyers Association and I’m also accredited by many other family law organisations. My experience dealing with divorce and issues with children means I can also help you agree the best arrangements for the care and upbringing of your children.

I believe communication is paramount in the event of any relationship breakdown but understand that it can be difficult when couples part. I firmly believe the collaborative process works as it enables couples to have the support of their chosen lawyer when they sit around the table to try and sort out their differences.

I also believe strongly in the work/life balance and can often be found riding and caring for my horse and am accompanied to work by my Labrador Bruno, who for dog lovers is a must to meet!

I am ideally located to undertake collaborative cases anywhere from Sheffield up to Leeds including Barnsley, Huddersfiled, Rotherham and Wakefield.
