about lawson legal services
Founded in 2020 by Jade Lawson, who holds an LLB degree (Cum Laude) from the University of South Africa and completed her Practical Legal Training at the University of Cape Town. Thereafter, she worked as a mediator for one of South Africa’s leading legal insurance companies. Inspired by her passion to make the law accessible to all people, Jade identified a need in the legal industry, where mediation could play a pivotal role in offering efficient and expert family law services to individuals at a fraction of the cost of litigation.
Jade is an accredited Family and Divorce mediator with the Social Justice Foundation Association of Members (SJFAM). Her areas of expertise are child and spousal maintenance, family law, divorce mediation, parenting plans, parental responsibilities and rights, care and contact of children, and unwed fathers’ rights.
Why choose us to mediate your family matter?
I am a legal professional and an accredited divorce and family mediator with first-hand experience in a variety of family-related matters. As a child from a divorced family, I have personally experienced some of the challenges families encounter.
As a wife and mother, I have developed an understanding of the importance of having both parents involved in raising children. I have found that effective co-parenting and the use of parenting plans can minimize the disruption of divorce and/or separation and although emotional, it can be amicable through mediation.
I can help you create a peaceful environment that will help everyone reach an agreement that is beneficial to all involved. My mission is to ensure that the best interest of the child/ren is at the forefront of every mediation.
