Asbestos Disease


Regional Manager and Specialist Asbestos Lawyer


Amanda Jones is a highly experienced senior asbestos disease solicitor and manages Thompsons Solicitors’ asbestos team for Wales and the South West.

Having joined Thompsons in 2004, Amanda has since become a partner of the firm and splits her time between the Cardiff and Llanelli offices. She specialises in representing clients with the fatal mesothelioma cancer contracted after exposure to asbestos, sometimes stretching back 30 or 40 years.

She regularly deals with complex cases, often representing women who have developed mesothelioma after coming into contact with asbestos when handling their male relatives’ working clothes.

Amanda has an extensive working knowledge of the main workplaces where asbestos was used and has successfully represented hundreds of people who have developed an asbestos-related disease.

She takes pride in keeping in close contact with her clients and building a relationship with families during a difficult time. She has secured a large number of settlements and regularly receives positive feedback from her clients, many of whom say how sensitively and efficiently she has dealt with their claim.

Amanda actively supports Mesothelioma UK, Asbestos Awareness & Support Cymru and the South West Asbestos Support & Awareness Group. She has been a guest speaker at annual training days organised for senior medical practitioners in Wales.

The Wales asbestos team headed by Amanda won South Wales Law Awards Personal Injury Law Services of the year in May 2022.

In December 2023, Amanda spoke at the Houses of Parliament on the importance of removing asbestos from public buildings, calling on her decades of experience in the field of asbestos litigation.


Amanda has been a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers since 1999.


During her spare time, she is actively involved in the trade union and labour movement and enjoys watching rugby union. She has two sons and is a governor of Coedcae Comprehensive School

Amanda JonesThompsons Solicitors LLP

The ‘amazing’ team at Thompsons Solicitors LLP is ‘extremely helpful and supportive’ to clients, including many members from the firm’s extensive union ties, across a range of injuries sustained at work, and as a result of road traffic accidents. Under the guidance of the ‘experienced and capable’ Amanda Jones, the office has, however, gained most acclaim as a result of its tireless efforts on behalf of victims of asbestos-related diseases, where her ‘wealth of experience makes all the difference when seeking to identify potential sources of exposure, potential defendants and insurers’. Senior associate Anthony Welsh is particularly effective acting for clients in complex claims arising from road traffic accidents and accidents at work.
