Stephensons adds to its award winning family department

The award winning family law department at Stephensons has appointed an experienced child care solicitor to join its growing team, its third significant hire in recent months.

Amy Jones joins Stephensons from Watsons Solicitors in Warrington and brings with her over 10 years’ experience in a range of family law matters. Amy specialises in child care work and has strong links with both the Liverpool and Manchester court circuits.

As part of her role at Stephensons, Amy will be providing expert legal assistance to parents and guardians in care proceedings.

Amy obtained her Law Society Children Panel Accreditation last year and is now one of seven solicitors in the Stephensons family department who have achieved this accreditation – one of the largest of any North West firm.

Commenting on the appointment, Victoria Gethin, Partner and Head of Family Law at Stephensons said:

“Amy is a superb lawyer with a wealth of experience in often complex family matters. With an excellent reputation across both Liverpool and Manchester, Amy’s appointment underlines the strength and depth of talent within the Stephensons team and the expertise we are able to provide our clients across the country.

“Despite the challenges of 2020, Stephensons continues to see very strong demand for its family law services. Amy’s appointment comes just weeks after two further solicitors joined the department.”
