Justine Osmotherley


Spear's Review

Justine Osmotherley has been a specialist matrimonial solicitor for over 25 years, and the partner now heads the eight-person family law team at Leeds-based firm, Clarion.

Osmotherley says her approach is largely defined by a commitment to ‘dealing with all matters in as non-confrontational and amicable way as possible’. She believes such a stance ‘provides the best results for all involved, and it allows me to utilise my knowledge and experience to prevent conflict or distress.’ Clients have responded in kind. ‘I have definitely noticed an increased awareness amongst our family law clients of alternatives to using court,’ she observes.

One specialism of Osmotherley’s is pre and post-nuptial agreements. ‘There appears to be more willingness now by those marrying to have those grown up, sensible discussions about what should happen if they divorce,’ she says.

Adviser Profile

Osmotherley is a 25-year qualified Resolution Accredited matrimonial Partner with specialism in finance and pre/post nup agreements. She is ranked in Band 1 of Chambers and as a Leading Individual in Legal 500. Osmotherley has a great reputation nationally as a highly regarded and sought-after lawyer complimented for legal and practical skills and caring nature. She has a great reputation as a lawyer and recognises the importance of trying to reach a settlement that best suits the parties, and settles out of court where she can. Clients love her straight-talking approach, and she is complimented on her legal skills, emotional intelligence, caring nature and practical support.
