Gareth Jones Headshot

Gareth Jones

Associate Solicitor
Department: Litigation

Gareth is an experienced solicitor and joins the firm having spent 15 years with another Yorkshire firm practising in litigation.

Gareth undertakes contentious probate work including claims for Financial Abuse, claims for reasonable provision pursuant to the Inheritance Act 1975 and claims against executors.

Gareth understands that whilst litigation enables people to resolve problems and achieve fair outcomes,  it can be a  stressful experience. He tries to adopt a calming approach whilst achieving the best possible result for the client. 

Outside of work, he has a young family that takes up most of his time, but when time does permit, and he has sufficient energy, he enjoys practising the guitar, learning Spanish and trying to teach himself to swim front crawl with a view to one day participating in a triathlon.
