JWP Solicitors promotes four to senior positions

JWP has promoted four experienced solicitors to senior positions in order to support the continued growth and expansion of the Yorkshire law firm.

Lois Monks, Damien Dobson, Tahira Rahman and Joanne Whitehead have each been promoted to the position of senior solicitor within the family and childcare departments at JWP.

The promotions come a few months after the firm opened its fourth office in Batley, a site which Whitehead and Dobson were instrumental in setting up.

Between them, the four senior solicitors have a wealth of experience representing clients in family and children cases, and they hold numerous accreditations with organisations such as Resolution and the Law Society children panel. 

Commenting on the promotions, Amanda Steele, director at JWP, said: “Jo, Damien, Tahira and Lois have each played a key role in the development of the family and childcare departments here at JWP over the last decade or so. These new roles bring increased responsibility and team managerial duties, putting them at the centre of our plans for development.”

JWP Solicitors have served the Yorkshire community for 20 years, having been formed in 2000 at the site of a former wool stapler in Cheapside, Wakefield. Since then, the firm has continued its commitment to the Yorkshire region with three additional sites in Pontefract, Leeds and Batley.

The new office in Batley, which opened in late 2019, is located at the Al Hikmah Centre, allowing the law firm to serve the communities of both Batley and Dewsbury.

Clients can access all of JWP’s legal services from the new site, including family and children law, wills and probate, and personal injury.
