Jones Myers team

 

Our highly experienced team at Jones Myers has opened a new office at Windsor House, Cornwall Road in Harrogate as we mark our 25-year anniversary.

The milestone for our specialist family law firm, which operates out of Leeds and London, is to accommodate an increase in instructions from our clients in North Yorkshire.

The move has been widely featured across print and broadcast media including The Yorkshire Post, The BusinessDesk, BusinessLink, Bdaily, the Harrogate Advertiser and Stray FM.

2017 has been a formative year for our practice, which was founded in Leeds by Peter Jones – one of the country’s leading family lawyers and a former national chairman of Resolution.

We are consistently ranked in a joint Top Tier position by the Legal 500 and Chambers guides for Leeds, West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire.

Chambers 2018 describes us as, “A very strong firm – not just in finance but also in children cases.” It adds, “Expertise in dealing with financial remedy nuptial cases adds depth to their practice.”

The latest edition of the highly respected Legal 500 guide describes Jones Myers as “a family practice that is one of the best in the area” and attracts praise for our “sensible, expert, conciliatory advice that does what it says on the tin.”

Our clients are based regionally, nationally and internationally, and we have earned an enviable reputation working exclusively in divorce, separation, complex financial disputes, children issues and contested wills and estates.

Our team of experts, which include a Deputy District Judge, an experienced mediator, a family law arbitrator and our own in-house barrister, jointly combine 250 years of legal experience.

Our move to Harrogate follows the recent expansion of our highly respected children’s department who are regarded as leading experts in issues of residence, contact, relocation, child protection and international child abduction.

Peter Jones said: “The services we provide at our Harrogate office complement those at our Leeds and London locations. We are proud to be recognised as lawyers who look for solutions to problems and are acknowledged for supporting families and children. We advise and guide where possible on options which can avoid conflict and unnecessary costs.

“A big ‘thank you’ to our valued and talented team in what is a momentous year for the firm.”

This year’s Dragon Boat Challenge to boost funds for Martin House Children’s Hospice went swimmingly for our Jones Myers LLP team who put their best paddle forward for the second consecutive year.

The 2012 Purple Pirates comprising Sarah Dickinson, Andrew Fox, Richard Peaker, Anthony Parrish, Katie Radford and Emma Weatherill enjoyed a swashbuckling afternoon at Roundhay Park lake to support Martin House Children’s Hospice, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Almost 40 teams of 10 paddlers threw themselves into the occasion – and are on target to jointly raise £30,000 for the charity which needs to raise £4.9million every year to continue its fantastic work. There was a great buzz from those taking part and from their families and friends who turned out in force to cheer them on. The Purple Pirates finished a respectable 22nd out of 37 teams. (more…)
