Niche family law firm Jones Myers has retained its Number 1 ranking in the Legal 500 guide for almost three decades.

The 2024 guide, based on client interviews, applauds the practice as going from strength to strength ‘with its brand of smooth professionalism supporting a caring, empathetic attitude to all its client base’.

Legal 500 also highlights how the firm’s expansion to offices in Harrogate and York ‘ensures that their dedicated brand of family legal advice is available to more of the general public.’

As the only Top Tier family law practice with a York office, the wealth of experience of its family law specialists, widely acknowledged as leaders in their field, is also acknowledged.

Managing partner Richard Peaker, head of the firm’s Financial Remedies Department, and partner Kate Banerjee keep their Leading Individual status. Kate leads the Children’s Department whose team is praised for its ‘breadth and depth of knowledge unrivalled in their area.’

Partner Anthony Parrish is again named as a Next Generation Partner with partner Nicki Mitchell, who heads the firm’s York office, described as ‘exceptional’.

Said Richard Peaker: “Our track record for delivering excellence and for attracting the best family lawyers in our field is reflected in our year-on-year Top Tier rankings.

“We attribute our continued success to our talented and committed teams across the region. Enormous thanks to them for their invaluable contribution and to our valued clients for their powerful endorsement.”

The firm’s lawyers are also included in the 2023 edition of Best Lawyers in the United Kingdom following peer recommendations.

One of the first family law firms to be founded in Yorkshire in 1992, Jones Myers has a long-standing commitment to the region with headquarters in Leeds and additional offices in Harrogate and York.
