Jones Myers founder calls on family law firms to demonstrate excellence

Jones Myers founder Peter Jones – one of the country’s most sought after family lawyers – is inviting family law firms to be recognised as excellent in their field.  

A champion of raising standards, Peter, who chairs the specialist accreditation committee of Resolution which is committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes, is encouraging family lawyers to become an accredited specialist.

Peter, who is also a former national chair of Resolution, says: “The accreditation is a mark of excellence in practice which is recognised by the public, fellow members, current and future employers, the judiciary, the Legal Aid Agency and potential clients.

“It demonstrates that you are a specialist in your field and reassures the public that the lawyer they instruct has excelled in achieving a higher academic and experienced status.”

Details of how to apply can be found within the prospectus and the deadline to return the application form is Monday September 16.   

Jones Myers is a long-standing member of Resolution which considers the needs of the whole family and always strives to put children’s interests first.

Solicitor Rosanna Hyett currently chairs the Young Resolution Committee, known as YRes for West and North Yorkshire. Representing the next generation of lawyers, YRes enables members to share experiences, concerns and ideas and develop skills and knowledge in a friendly and supportive environment.

Jones Myers partner, Sarah Dickinson, is accredited by Resolution as a specialist in advanced financial provision which covers complex financial and property matters, family advocacy – and preparing and presenting finance cases in Court.
