Jenna Preston is an partner lawyer with Nelligan Law and a member of the firm’s Family Law Group.

 

Jenna has been practising family law since her Call to the Bar in 2014, focusing on:

  • custody and access
  • child relocation
  • property division
  • child and spousal support
  • domestic contracts
  • mediations
  • family arbitrations

Jenna has extensive expertise in complex financial issues that affect separating couples who own their own business or shares in a business. In these cases, she works closely with a team of experts, such as business valuators, corporate lawyers, forensic accountants, and tax experts, to get the best possible outcome for her clients.

Jenna is a problem-solver and prides herself on getting the job done efficiently to avoid costly and time-consuming litigation for her clients wherever possible.

Jenna also understands that going through any family issue is an emotionally charged time. She stays level-headed even when her clients are in crisis, to continue advancing the process so her clients can move on with the next chapter of their lives as quickly as possible.

She also has wide-ranging research and writing experience in the areas of family law, ethics, religion and the law. In 2018, she co-authored a book on Family Law Arbitration in Ontario with Stephen Grant.

Jenna was recognized in the 2024 edition of Best Lawyers with the “Ones To Watch” designation, an award recognizing lawyers who are in the first 10 years of their careers for outstanding professional excellence in private practice.
