About Shelley Wales
Shelley qualified as a solicitor in 2001 with Atteys solicitors in Doncaster. She then moved to Hellewell Pasley & Brewer in Birstall in 2005, Williscroft & Co in Bradford until 2008 and then moved to Ramsdens solicitors where she spent the next 10 years honing her skills in family law!
Shelley moved to join us here at Thornton Jones in September 2018 to further enhance our Family Law team.
Shelley is a qualified Family Mediator and is working towards full accreditation. She specialises in dealing with the financial aspects of divorce and separation, and has a real interest in unravelling the finances of unmarried couples through the Trusts of Land and Trustees Act 1996.
Shelley's manner is warm and friendly and very approachable. Shelley always takes a practical and sensible approach to all her cases but can also be a tough litigant when needed.
Outside of work, Shelley enjoys nothing more than sharing a night out with friends, including pub quizzes, book clubs and theatre, and especially enjoys a day out shopping with her teenage daughter, When she is not doing this she and her husband spend time supporting their son with his football (aka being taxi drivers!).
Shelley is a member of Resolution and is committed to resolving family disputes in a non confrontational way wherever possible.
