Niche family law firm Jones Myers has further expanded its York office with the appointment of solicitor Lilly Grant.
Boosting the firm’s growing team of specialist family lawyers, Lilly specialises in divorce and separation, financial settlements and children arrangements.
Jones Myers York office is headed by partner Nicki Mitchell, a mediator and the first family solicitor to qualify as a collaborative family lawyer in York.
Nicki said: “As our growth continues across our offices in York, Leeds and Harrogate, we are witnessing increased demand for our specialist matrimonial advice as the lockdown continues.
“Lilly is respected for adopting a sensible and thorough approach to cases and clients appreciate her understanding and caring manner. We wish her continued success as a valued member of our team.”
Lilly said: “Jones Myers has an excellent reputation in family law and its lawyers are leaders in their field. I am looking forward to being part of the team as the firm continues to go from strength to strength.”
Additional recent appointments include senior family law executive Anna Sutcliffe who is also based in York and experienced family lawyer Debra Jackson, a specialist in cohabitation.
Consistently ranked in a joint Top Tier position by the Legal 500 and Chambers guides alongside national firms, Jones Myers is the only family law practice in Leeds with its own in-house barrister.
The practice is also the only family law firm in Yorkshire to be shortlisted in the Northern category of the Family Law Awards.
Founded in 1992, its lawyers’ expertise jointly combines almost 300 years’ legal experience and includes collaborative lawyers, mediators, one of the UK’s first Family Law arbitrators and a former Deputy District Judge.
