Solicitor, Collaborative Lawyer and Head of the Family Department

Jo originally joined AMD in 2003 as a trainee solicitor and was admitted as a solicitor in 2005. In 2008 she moved to practice at a firm in Bath and returned to AMD in 2016.
Jo specialises in family law and is a member of the Law Society’s Family Law Accreditation Scheme. She is a trained Collaborative Lawyer which is an alternative approach to resolving relationship breakdown, an approach that allows couples to retain control over the process and to keep the matter outside of court.
Jo represents clients in a wide range of family matters including divorce, financial settlements, unmarried couple disputes and cases concerning children.
Recent clients have said the following about Jo:
“Going into divorce proceedings is a daunting process, especially for someone who has very minimal knowledge of the workings and processes it entails. If you are in this position, I can’t recommend the services of AMD Henleaze and particularly Jo Morris enough. For me, Jo has provided experience, clarity and has been very approachable. After my very first meeting with Jo I thanked her for being “comforting” at the start of an intimidating journey and I feel that sentiment still applies now an outcome has been reached.“
“Jo represented me through a divorce which at times was difficult. Through the entire time she remained professional, balanced and when necessary supportive. Her advice as well as providing the legal perspective, was also delivered with a healthy dose of common sense. I would have no hesitation in recommending her professional services to anyone.”
“Jo Morris was amazing, I couldn’t ask for a better solicitor. I will definitely be back if I need to. Many thanks to Jo and the team.”
“Dear Jo, This is to formally thank you for your advice and support since last May. We very much appreciate your legal advice and practical guidance and for dealing with the court and other difficult issues. As you know we have used AMD for our legal affairs for many years and will continue to do so and recommend you to others.”
