Jackie Hall came to Whakatane in 2006 from the UK. Her background in the rail industry, motor trade and public house conveyancing saw her dealing with some ‘real characters in the real world’ – experience that’s proved very useful in her role at Gowing & Co Lawyers Limited.
Jackie has been legal secretary to Gene Tomlinson for nine years working mainly in the area of criminal law. She is the intermediary between client and solicitor and has a reputation for providing exceptional service in a challenging role.
In addition to a great mutual respect, Jackie and Gene share a British ancestry (and resulting sense of humour) which Jackie says can ‘come in very handy’.
