When you need advice you need a specialist firm. Jarvis Family Law LLP are a niche firm of solicitors practice providing expert legal advice on all family law issues. Based in Harrogate, clients are located nationwide and across the world – more and more clients are appreciating the fact that a quality legal service is available outside of the cities.
Jackie Nicholson, Managing Partner of Jarvis Family Law LLP, says “of course we provide a quality service at reasonable cost but the real difference in the service which we offer as a practice is the amount of family law experience that our solicitors have and the fact that this translates into first class results for our clients in the settlements achieved”.
The four lawyers in the practice have over 80 years practical legal experience between them making Jarvis one of the most experienced practices in family law in this area. Angela Moores (the second partner in the practice) is one of only a handful of lawyers accredited at Resolution* Stage II in complex financial asset settlements in the North of England.
Clients are able to benefit from an initial meeting, at no charge, on a strictly confidential basis, avoiding the sometimes very public and impersonal clinic approach offered by many law firms today.
All such meetings are conducted with experienced lawyers resulting in immediate evaluation of the current position, proposals to protect assets, an overview of options available and an indication of the likely settlement position achievable. Angela comments “strong support and realistic advice at the outset can make all the difference in achieving a successful outcome for the client”.
At the business end of the practice, having a full time and hugely experienced Managing Partner such as Jackie Nicholson is virtually unheard of within such a specialist niche law practice. Jackie qualified as a lawyer in 1986 and has spent almost all of her career working for major PLC’s specifically in business start up and operational management. Jackie says “I ensure that the operational elements of the business run smoothly enabling the solicitors to concentrate on working for the clients, doing what they do best – it works well that way and the clients appreciate that a well run practice can make a big difference to their own experience. I view the practice from a business perspective which is not always the forte of lawyers particularly those based in smaller practices”.
The refreshing approach that Jarvis Family Law LLP has adopted extends beyond their approach to clients. The firm is a member of the successful St Michael’s Hospice Business 500 Club in Harrogate providing support to Saint Michael’s on a monthly basis and Jarvis offer their meeting room based in central Harrogate at their modern purpose built offices to the business community at no charge.
