A SENIOR family lawyer based in the City has joined a local law firm bringing decades of experience back to his roots in Saddleworth.
Specialist family law solicitor Anthony Jones joined O’Donnell Solicitors, which opened in January and has offices in Uppermill and Lees, as head of their new Family Department.
Former Saddleworth School pupil Anthony, 38, whose background includes working at a leading city centre practice, a national firm and latterly a boutique family law practice in Manchester, was appointed head of a new family department on 1 July.
Anthony specialises in divorce including financial settlements, cohabitation disputes or agreements, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, private children disputes including child abduction, civil partnership dissolution or finances and domestic violence.
His clients include professionals, celebrities, business owners, entrepreneurs and clients from all backgrounds, both nationally and internationally.
Now, Anthony, who grew up in Springhead and lives in Mossley with his wife and three children, is bringing this wealth of expertise to help clients find quick and affordable solutions.
“I wanted to be part of something local and when James and Rebecca offered me the chance to join them I simply could not turn it down,” he explained.
“I will be offering a Rolls Royce service at an affordable price away from the city centre for Greater Manchester including the surrounding area which is so familiar to me.
“Clients do not need to go into the city to get expert advice. This advice can be obtained locally and often at a more affordable and accessible price.”
Anthony, an accredited specialist with Resolution, works from both of the firms’ and where necessary will attend home appointments.
James O’Donnell, Director, said: “I had the opportunity of meeting Anthony shortly after opening the firm. Anthony is at the top of his game and that came across loud and clear.
“As well as being a heavyweight in his field, Anthony is approachable and down to earth and that is a very important attribute for any lawyer working in today’s market.
“Anthony grew up in the area and has so many local connections already. Rebecca and I look forward to working with him and offering this new specialist service to the locality.”
