About Me

I was born in Hastings in 1971 and have lived here all of my life apart from 6 years spent in London during my University days.

I became interested in the law at college and after obtaining an "A" grade at A-Level decided that maybe I was quite good at it!

I took a degree in Law and Social Anthropology at the London School of Economics and passed with a 2.1

I then went to the London College of Law where I obtained my Legal Practice Course and then returned to Hastings to complete my trainee solicitor training with a local firm.

Jo Hodgson

I have worked at various firms, both locally, in Eastbourne and Bromley.

I decided to set up my own specialist family law firm In November 2012 as I felt that it was time to offer a service unlike other law firms in the area.

I wanted to offer a very personal one to one service for my clients, dealing with their case from the initial consultation all the way through to the conclusion.

With the cut backs to legal aid I also wanted to be able to offer as many fixed fee packages as I could to enable clients to still afford legal representation with a clear confirmation of costs at the start of the case.

I have helped clients to achieve their desired outcome in a number of cases since Hodgsons became established and I hope to continue doing so for the future.

I am a single mother to a very lively little boy and having been through the divorce process myself can empathise with clients on both a personal and professional level.
