Karen Jeary

Associate Solicitor

Karen is an Associate Solicitor based in the Eastbourne office.

Karen qualified in 2018 and specialises in all areas of family law, including dealing with the financial and children issues that can arise following separation, divorce or civil partnership dissolution.

In March 2020, she qualified as a Collaborative Lawyer. 

Karen joined MWB in May 2018 having spent the previous three years with a niche private family firm based in Brighton where she trained and qualified as a family solicitor. In April 2021 she was made an Associate Solicitor.

Karen graduated with a First Class Honours LL.B Law with Business degree from the University of Brighton in 2012 and was awarded three final year academic prizes.  In January 2016 Karen passed the Legal Practice Course and in August 2016 was awarded an LL.M in Legal Practice at the University of Law Bloomsbury, London.  Karen’s dissertation was on the law relating to Child Relocation focusing on the impact recent decisions in internal and international child relocation have had on the established guidelines and the effect of those decisions on the likely outcome of future applications.

Before pursuing a career in law Karen worked in the public sector gaining extensive knowledge and experience in compliance, drafting policy papers, research, analysis and business strategy.

Outside of work, Karen enjoys spending time with her family and dog, walking, cooking and gardening.

Separation Agreement, Deed of Gift & Declaration of Trust

"My initial appointment was with Karen and from the start I found her empathetic and concise, which was invaluable during the difficult months. Tim Griffith dealt with the Deed of Gift and Declaration of Trust, on which his knowledge was extensive."

Child Arrangement Matters

“Karen was absolutely brilliant. She has assisted me in gaining a living order for my 3-year-old child. Karen was extremely supportive with her advice and was always very reliable. She was very knowledgeable in all of the proceedings and I will be forever grateful. I would definitely recommend Karen and Mayo Wynne Baxter.”
