Former Appleby head of family law launches boutique firm in Jersey

23/11/2017 News Team

A boutique family law firm which aims to “provide a holistic approach to family disputes” has opened in Jersey. 

Myersons, which has opened its doors in Broad Street in St Helier, has been founded by advocate Victoria Myerson.

Joining Ms Myerson are fellow local advocates Carly James and Celanne Scally. The trio worked together previously for over seven years at Appleby, where Ms Myerson was a partner. 

The team set up the new boutique firm in October 2017 and offers professional services on all areas of family law including divorce and ancillary relief, pre and post nuptial agreements and emergency injunctive relief. The firm also looks after matters involving children such as child maintenance, residence, leave to remove and contact disputes. 

Ms Myerson has worked on some of the biggest matrimonial proceedings in Jersey and is also the vice chairman of the Jersey Family Law Association whilst Ms James is the current chair of Relate – the relationship support charity. 

Ms Myerson commented: “We identified a gap in the market for a very specialised family law firm based on expertise and experience and delivering on complex cases. We are not a high-street firm, we are a boutique offering and our independence affords us the opportunity to work in a completely client focused way. 

“Over my career, I have seen the stress and impact that family disputes can have on clients’ emotional and physical wellbeing and we are dedicated as a business to ensuring cases are dealt with efficiently and sensitively whilst encouraging clients to access therapeutic and wellness support as well. We are not fee focused, we are family focused and I strongly believe that we have the best team in the Island to help clients navigate their disputes.”
