Lead Senior Paralegal


Joanne qualified as a solicitor in 2006 after completing her training contract at a large city firm in Newcastle Upon Tyne.  She then relocated to Wales whereby she specialised in Family Law for 10 years.  Her main areas of expertise focused on Child Arrangements Orders, Domestic violence cases and Divorce and Ancillary Relief Proceedings.

As a qualified solicitor she was solely responsible for a large caseload that she ran from beginning to end.  She has numerous years experience in drafting court applications, statements and advocacy in all family matters.

Due to her own family circumstances, Jo Hammond took time away from practice in order to raise her family.  In 2016 she moved with her family to France, where she remains, and has decided to return to the law and wishes to assist clients as a paralegal by working for CHL remotely.


During her many years of practice Jo dedicated herself to ensuring her clients were dealt with efficiently, promptly and in a friendly approachable manner.  

Client feedback for Jo:

Absolutely first class service in dealing with my case I can not recommend highly enough you will not be disappointed - I had a mountain to climb and was overwhelmed by what I was facing but nothing was too much trouble and very professional throughout - first class.

Another client says:
Court Help Limited is an excellent company assisting in a very friendly, committed and effective way people like myself who are thrown into deep and drowning waters of the UK legal system. Mr Vik the CHL Director became personally involved, albeit outside normal working hours, in order to accommodate their legal support service provision for me. And Ms Joanne, an experienced legal expert, diligently and quickly provided me with a legal document ready to submit to the court, despite me requesting their help at a short notice. Definitely, First Choice Company to go to for legal assistance!
