Jones Myers solicitor Rosanna Hyett has been appointed chair of a committee which represents the next generation of lawyers.
The Young Resolution Committee, known as YRes, is part of Resolution’s nationwide group of family lawyers and other professionals which promotes a non-confrontational approach to family problems.
YRes enables members to share their experiences, concerns and ideas, ask questions, and develop skills and knowledge in a friendly and supportive environment.
Experienced in divorce, separation and financial issues and disputes resulting from relationship breakdown, Rosanna, who has previously taken on roles as committee member and secretary, was delighted to become chair for West and North Yorkshire across 2019.
Boosting awareness of Resolution and promoting its code of conduct, YRes provides networking, seminars, tailored training sessions and organises social events.
Rosanna said: “The forum enables members to share their expertise with peers to benefit their firms and strengthen professional relationships both regionally and nationally. Attending events is a great opportunity for junior family lawyers and I would encourage as many as possible to get involved.”
Jones Myers founder, Peter Jones, is a former national Chair of Resolution and current chair of the Accreditation Committee of Resolution (SFLA) which oversees the academic development of specialist family lawyers.
He said: “Our firm is a long-standing member of Resolution which also considers the needs of the whole family – and in particular always strives to put children’s interests first.
YRes is a formative development forum and we wish Rosanna every success in her role. We always advocate that people seeking family lawyers instruct firms or individuals who are members of Resolution and who practice the organisation’s sensitive, constructive and cost-effective approach to family issues.”
Jones Myers partner Sarah Dickinson and Peter Jones are both specialist accredited members of Resolution continuing to demonstrate their experience, qualification and expertise in family law.
