Yorkshire family law specialists continue to expand

One of the region’s fastest-growing family law firms has continued to expand its team with the appointment of two new solicitors.

Jarvis Family Law, based in Harrogate, has been joined by Samantha Haslam and Harjit Rait, bringing the current number of staff to 16 – this has quadrupled from just four when business partners Jackie Nicholson and Angela Moores took over the practice in 2010.

Samantha has 14 years’ experience as a family law solicitor and specialises in private financial, child-related and property matters arising from divorce and separation. She also has a reputation as a strong negotiator.

An enthusiastic runner, she lives in Harrogate with her husband and three children.

She said:

“I’ve previously worked for large city centre law firms as part of a busy family team, as well as closer to home. I’m very much looking forward to helping Jarvis Family Law build on what is already a very strong reputation as a specialist family law business.”

Harjit also boasts extensive experience, having practiced solely in the family law sector since qualifying in 2001 with a keen focus on financial affairs.

Yorkshire born and bred, she is married with two young children and enjoys cooking for large family get-togethers.

She added: 

“I’m really excited about joining a firm which is dedicated to family law. I look forward to being a key player as Jarvis Family Law continues to go from strength to strength.”

Partner Jackie Nicholson said:

As a niche practice, it’s vital for us that anyone who joins our team has specialised in family law throughout their careers.

“It means that each of our clients is supported by a true expert who can do the very best for them.

“Samantha and Harjit are both very experienced and we’re delighted to welcome two people with their levels of knowledge and capability.”
