Jason Stanley joined Stowe Family Law in September 2017 as a Senior Solicitor based at the Hale Office.
Jason qualified as a solicitor in 2001 having completed his legal practice course at the renowned College of Law in York. Since qualification, he initially advised clients in a broad range of family law as well as civil disputes that included complex Chancery work, Landlord and Tenant issues, neighbor/boundary disputes and employment law. He successfully built up and established a litigation department at a practice in the Fylde Coast before relocating to Manchester.
In the last decade he has specilised in family work. His exposure to a wide variety of contentious work in the initial years since qualification has proved invaluable as to his ability to connect and empathise with a diverse range of clients.
Jason covers most aspects of family law but in the main, advises clients in relation to resolving financial issues, children disputes, divorce and injunction applications in cases of domestic or emotional abuse. He has also had exposure to international child abduction matters and has represented grandparents in difficult children proceedings involving social services. Jason also has experience advising clients who are unmarried, drafting separation agreements or issuing contested financial disputes in the civil courts.
Over the years, Jason has received feedback from previous clients for his down to earth manner and the way he will make a client feel comfortable in emotionally difficult situations. He is robust in negotiations and as an advocate in court, he will explore all options for a client including attempts to reach an out of court settlement if possible. He is adept at looking at the bigger picture as proceedings can be emotionally or financially draining, but will not compromise on detail.
Outside of work Jason is an amateur DIY enthusiast (and has the scars to prove it), a runner and dedicated father of three children.

“Thank you so much for the fight, energy and support you have dedicated over these past years. I feel rich in the fact that I have retained my dignity and self-respect. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
“Thank you so much for all your support and advice during a difficult 11 months. You have been a solicitor, counselor and even managed to get some laughs through the tears and traumas. I feel a totally different person to the one that came into the office last year and you have played a big part in that.”
