Jo Chawla LL.B (Hons) FMCA
Notting Hill, Beaconsfield and Oxford
With an open and non-adversarial approach, Jo aims to help you find a way through the ending of your relationship working through issues of child arrangements and finances.
No one enters into any relationship intending to separate and the changes separation brings about can often feel overwhelming and frightening. Confronted with court, clients can often become entrenched and positional and working together gets lost.
The mediation process allows you a space in which to discuss the often difficult, both practical and emotional issues that confront you as you separate, to work at your own pace and to make decisions together for your family, decisions you know will work because you’ve made them together. With her roots historically in the world of litigation, Jo knows what will and what will not be acceptable to a court in clients’ decision making.
As an accredited family mediator and also an accredited commercial mediator Jo is able to offer alternative bespoke models of mediation. Not all clients want the family model of mediation and Jo is able to adapt the process to suit your needs, time scale, budget and if you would like, a greater solicitor involvement in the mediation process.
Jo qualified as a PPC with Resolution in 2018, supporting and supervising fellow family mediators in their family mediation practices. She is a member of Resolution, FMA and the CMC.
She currently works in Notting Hill, Beaconsfield and Oxford
