Jones Myers shortlisted for prestigious family law award

Our niche family law firm is in the final line up of the Family Law Awards  for the outstanding quality of service we deliver to our clients.

Jones Myers is the only family law practice in Yorkshire to be shortlisted in the Northern category of the Family Law Firm accolade.   

Widely acknowledged as an exceptional niche family law practice, we have consistently retained our top tier regional rankings in Chambers and Legal 500 for over two decades.

Founder Peter Jones is the current national chair of Resolution’s Specialist Accreditation Committee. He is also a former national chair of Resolution and an ex Deputy District Judge. 

The only family law practice in Leeds with our own specialist in-house counsel, our lawyers’ combined legal experience spans almost 300 years.

Our Financial Remedies Department specialises in high net worth cases and is regularly instructed in multi- jurisdictional proceedings and cases involving complex corporate and off shore trust structures. 

Our renowned Children’s Team deals with issues including adoption, child abduction, child arrangements, care proceedings, relocation and Court of Protection work.

Jones Myers also has extensive expertise in alternative dispute resolution processes – Mediation, Collaborative Law and Arbitration – which avoid a lengthy court process and can lead much more quickly and cost effectively to a successful resolution.

Milestones include opening a Harrogate office in 2017 and expanding to York in 2019 with a three-strong team headed by partner Nicki Mitchell, a skilled mediator and collaborative family lawyer.    

We have also further boosted our teams across our offices in Leeds, Harrogate and York following increased demand for our specialist matrimonial advice.

A champion of giving back to our local communities, our lawyers donate their time and expertise free of charge to raise standards in our profession.

Said Nicki: “Despite the Covid-19 Pandemic, the award organisers have received an overwhelming number of entries this year. We are proud and delighted to be in the final line up and wish fellow finalists the best of luck.”  

Our robust contingency planning and technological capability to effectively manage cases remotely throughout the Pandemic has been applauded by our clients.

As lockdown restrictions intensify and a divorce boom is widely predicted, our ongoing commitment to providing urgent advice and support to our clients, who include the vulnerable, ensures we are geared up to assist even more clients.  

The winners of the Family Law Awards will be announced at a virtual ceremony on November 25.
