Karen Jones

Karen Jones was admitted to practice in 1993. Since her admission, Karen has practised almost exclusively in family law and has developed a thorough knowledge of complex financial settlements (involving company and trust structures) arising from the breakdown of domestic (de-facto) and marital relationships. Karen has a wide and varied client base involving children’s matters, the preparation of Financial Agreements, Wills, Probate, Property settlements and minor criminal matters.

Karen prides herself on her professional and client focused work ethic, ensuring the needs of her clients are met in a diligent and cost effective manner. This requires taking a sound and practical approach in all family law proceedings.

Prior to founding JH Legal with Patricia Hepworth, Karen worked for many years in private legal practice and before that, in the education sector. Karen is committed to local communities as well as her profession, volunteering her services in the community legal centre sector and serving as a past President of the Eastern Community Legal Centre.
