At Jones Myers we pride ourselves on being amongst the country’s most respected specialist law firms. With a quarter of a century’s experience, we deal exclusively in family law, including divorce and separation, matters relating to children and contentious wills, trusts and estates.
Our unique ethos, approach and expertise is reflected in our consistent top Yorkshire rankings by the influential Legal 500 and Chambers guides – the latter describing us as “A genuinely brilliant firm”.
We understand that choosing the right representation, particularly in an area as complex and sensitive as family law, is critical. Our top team of experts, who jointly boast 250 years of legal experience, include one of the country’s leading divorce lawyers, a Deputy District Judge in the Principal Registry of the Family Division, experienced mediators, an arbitrator and our own in-house barrister.
Consistently striving for the right solution for every client, we support, guide and advise them through options including collaborative law which avoid going to court. Likewise, when clients require strong and tenacious support to pursue litigation, we adeptly guide them through this process. We know only too well the impact that relationship and family issues can have on people’s lives – which is why our understanding, expertise and reputation underpins everything we do.
The Chambers 2017 Guide describes our Children Department – which attracts complex and varied casework in the UK and overseas and whose expertise spans private law residence, contact and adoption – as “particularly famed for its ability to handle complicated children cases”.
Every case is unique and we combine our collective knowledge and skills with an empathic, pragmatic and professional approach, tailored to individual needs.
Our contentious wills, trusts and estates team looks after individuals and families, leading them through the issues arising from this specialist area of family law.
