What Jane says:

“I thoroughly love my work, everyday is different, every property transaction is different I enjoy acting for first time buyers with the excitement of them purchasing their first property and having now been qualified for over 20 years it is great to act for generations of the same families. I cannot really imagine doing anything else!

I qualified as a solicitor in 1995 and after gaining 8 years experience with another firm I moved to our Longfield office as a Partner in 2003. Initially I dealt with Matrimonial and Family matters in addition to Residential Property transactions. After taking over as Partner in charge of the Longfield office, I now deal solely with Residential Property matters. I have expertise in all forms of Residential Property transactions, but I have a particular interest in Declarations of Trust dealing with beneficial ownership of jointly owned properties.

Outside of the workplace I have two teenage sons who keep me busy, most weekends are taken up with watching them play sport of one kind or another. I am a big fan of the American comedy “Modern Family”, enjoy swimming, baking cakes, going to the cinema, watching a good box-set of any American drama and most recently starting to appreciate my garden!

I love Italian food, and most music from Adele to UB40 but I am a huge fan of Simply Red. I support Chelsea F C and Tampa Bay Rays baseball team and love watching most sports.”

If I were not a lawyer, I would be...
