From Our Website

JWP Solicitors is a team of 20 solicitors serving Leeds, Wakefield, Pontefract, Batley, Dewsbury, West Yorkshire and the whole of the north of England. All our solicitors are specialists in their fields ensuring you receive the best legal representation possible. We also have Family and Criminal law specialists who are fluent in Urdu, Punjabi and Hindi.


At JWP, all of our solicitors are specialists in their fields, so you can have confidence you'll receive the best legal representation possible. Formed in 2000, JWP Solicitors has quickly established itself as a provider of premium legal services. Our head office is based in a former wool staplers. The building has been completely refurbished, affording a spacious, relaxing and calm environment for the benefit of both clients and members of staff alike. Our offices became the first Solicitors Practice on Cheapside which is now renowned as being the place to find solicitors and other professional practices in Wakefield.


Our team includes members of the Law Society Children and Family panel, Resolution, and the Criminal Litigation Accreditation Scheme. Three of our solicitors are Higher Courts Advocates and two of our solicitors are fluent speakers of Urdu and Punjabi with one also fluent in Hindi. John qualified in 1986, becoming a partner in a West Yorkshire practice in 1991, and was instrumental in establishing JWP in 2000, since when the firm has quadrupled in size. John is a member of the Law Society Children Panel having amassed vast experience in Child Care Law.


Making a Will is an easy task to overlook - you keep meaning to get round to it or you think "I don't want to tempt fate" or "I don't have much to leave so I don't really need one." If you die without a Will, the assets that you leave will pass to your next of kin according to rules laid down by law. If you make a Will you can decide who should benefit from your estate, make arrangements for your children, and appoint Executors who will be responsible for making sure that your wishes are carried out.


At a first meeting your solicitor will provide you with all the information that you need in relation to a possible divorce or civil partnership dissolution, in order to enable you to make informed decisions about the best way for you and your family to move forward. Our solicitors will also discuss with you any issues concerning children and financial matters, both of which can be of great concern during a difficult time. Depending on your precise circumstances we will often encourage communication rather than confrontation.


Our highly respected team will deal with you as an individual, not just a number. You can be assured that your case will be dealt with by the same specialist solicitor throughout who you can contact at any time. If you have difficulty getting to our offices we can arrange to visit you at home. To be entitled to compensation the law in this country requires that there be fault on the part of the person or company against whom you are claiming. If the accident could have been prevented by reasonable means then there will usually be a claim.
