Shelley Wales

Lawyer - Thornton Jones Solicitors

Family Law - General


I qualified as a solicitor in 2001 with Atteys solicitors in Doncaster. I then moved to Hellewell Pasley & Brewer in Birstall in 2005, Williscroft & Co in Bradford until 2008 and then moved to Ramsdens solicitors where I spent the next 10 years honing my skills in family law. I joined the Thornton Jones Family Law team in September 2018.

I specialise in dealing with the financial aspects of divorce and separation, and have an interest in unravelling the finances of unmarried couples through the Trusts of Land and Trustees Act 1996.

I am warm and friendly and very approachable, and always takes a practical and sensible approach to my cases, but can also be a tough litigant when needed.

Outside of work, I enjoy nothing more than sharing a night out with friends, including pub quizzes, book clubs and theatre, and especially enjoy a day out shopping with my teenage daughter. When I am not doing this, my husband and I spend time supporting our son with his football (aka being taxi drivers!).

I am a member of Resolution and am committed to resolving family disputes in a non-confrontational way wherever possible. I have also dealt with several complex children Act matters where there have been serious allegations of abuse.

Late appointments in person or telephone can be accommodated.
