O’Donnell Solicitors are very pleased to welcome Senior Specialist Family Solicitor Anthony Jones to their team.
Anthony is the head of our new Family department and brings with him a wealth of experience. He has worked at high street practices, a leading City Centre practice, a National Firm and latterly a Boutique family law practice in Manchester City Centre.
Anthony, who lives locally with his wife and three children, is an Accredited Specialist with Resolution, an organisation with 6,500 family lawyers and other professionals committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes. He is accredited in complex financial provision (on divorce or dissolution of civil partnerships) and cohabitation (the law in relation to unmarried couples).
Anthony has handled hundreds of mid to high net worth divorce and matrimonial finance cases which are often complex and involve dealing with share valuations, trusts, pensions, and property abroad. He also has extensive experience in disputes involving unmarried parties. Anthony also represents clients (parents and grandparents) in disputes involving children including cases involving international child abduction. He also deals with asset protection through pre and post nuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements. His clients include professionals, celebrities, business owners, entrepreneurs and clients from all backgrounds both nationally and internationally, in particular Spain, Hong Kong, USA and Mauritius. His extensive experience operating at the very top brings a wealth of experience with him.
Anthony conducts family matters in an intelligent, constructive and non-confrontational way to assist clients in achieving a quick and affordable solution to their family problems. When necessary, Anthony adopts a robust approach, whilst keeping clients aware of the financial and emotional costs of their dispute. Anthony’s ultimate goal is to ensure that your family disputes are resolved for the long term future of you and your family so will always provide clients with a practical solution.
James O’Donnell (Director) said: ‘I had the opportunity of meeting Anthony shortly after opening the firm. Anthony is a Lawyer at the top of his game and that came across loud and clear. Rebecca and I are excited at the prospect of welcoming someone of Anthony’s calibre and specialism to the firm. As well as being a heavyweight in his field, Anthony is approachable and down to earth and that is a very important attribute. Anthony is undoubtedly a strong Lawyer in his field. His background is specialist family work and we believe there is a market for this type of specialist advice in the local area as well as the areas in which Anthony is already established and has operated in Cheshire (Wilmslow, Hale, Alderley Edge, Altrincham). Anthony grew up in the local area and has so many local connections already. Rebecca and I look forward to working with Anthony and offering a new service to the locality’.
Anthony commented ‘From my first meeting with James and Rebecca I was impressed with their ambition to grow the firm. It was clear to me that they were prepared to put that ambition into reality. I wanted to be part of something local and when they offered me the chance to join them I simply could not turn it down. I will be offering a Rolls Royce service at an affordable price away from the City Centre for the whole of Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and beyond which is what many clients are crying out for. I am looking forward to working with them and growing a successful family law team.’
Anthony will be based at our offices in Lees. As with all clients, Anthony will see clients at either of the firms branch offices and where required, home visits can be arranged.
