T: 01225 730 100

Jon specialises in helping clients to resolve financial disputes arising out of divorce and separation proceedings. He also works on a part time basis as a Deputy District Judge in local County Courts. This dual perspective means that he appreciates the value of people reaching an agreement outside of Court, wherever possible, rather than having a decision imposed on them.

Jon Toogood [was] very professional, but with lots of support and empathy too. I felt in very safe hands throughout an extremely difficult and traumatic divorce.

Nothing is quite like helping a person understand that the best way to resolve their problems is through constructive dialogue and collaboration. This gives me a tremendous sense of satisfaction, particularly when the family has gone through such an anxious time. I know that usually it is much better to have reached an agreement rather than have a decision imposed upon you by a Court.
