Jones Myers series of new appointments continues

Our niche family law firm Jones Myers is further expanding its team with the appointment of highly experienced family lawyer Debra Jackson.

Debra’s extensive expertise across eleven years spans divorce, financial settlements, pre and post nuptial agreements as well as inheritances and trusts.

A specialist in cases involving unmarried couples, Debra has gained Specialist Accreditation from Resolution in cohabitation.  

Debra encourages her clients to consider Mediation and other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution which avoid going to court.  

However, when a Court process is appropriate, she is equally experienced in providing clients with all options to enable them to make informed decisions that are right for them.

Treating each client as an individual, Debra’s clients commend her honesty and straightforward approach, and applaud her empathy and understanding.

Jones Myers partner and director Richard Peaker said: “Debra’s strong track record complements and enhances the expertise of our family lawyers and we wish her every success.

“Attracting and retaining top talent remains a top priority as we continue recruiting in line with a further increase in instructions from our local, national and international clients to meet growing demand.”

Jones Myers – which has offices in Leeds, Harrogate and York – is consistently ranked in a joint Top Tier position by the Legal 500 and Chambers guides alongside national practices. We are the only family law firm in Leeds with its own in-house barrister.

Said Debra: “Jones Myers has an outstanding reputation and it’s tremendous to join the firm at this formative period in its development. I thrive on the challenges of complicated cases and am looking forward to helping clients achieve creative solutions tailored to their individual circumstances and needs.”

Debra’s appointment has been well received in media publications including Yorkshire Legal and the Yorkshire Times.  

The expansion is the latest in a series of developments for the firm which has recently appointed a new partner and boosted its teams across all three offices.  

Jones Myers founder Peter Jones, partner and director Richard Peaker and collaborative law expert Norman Taylor have also recently featured in the UK’s ‘Best Lawyers’ listing for the 12th consecutive year.
