Jane Auty

Partner and Head of Family Law

Jane is one of our most experienced solicitors here at Thornton Jones Solicitors having qualified as a solicitor in 1997 and has specialised in Family Law since qualification and is known for providing practical and robust advice in all aspects of matrimonial finance.

She has extensive experience in guiding clients through all aspects of family law breakdown.  Jane has a strong reputation for dealing with complex high net worth financial cases frequently where there is an overseas element, business assets, pensions, trusts or a farming element. Jane also deals with pre/post nuptial settlements.

Jane is a trained and trusted collaborative lawyer, from 2006 has assisted clients in navigating their divorce or separation outside the court process. She is committed to dealing with all issues cooperatively and constructively, with a view to reaching a resolution by agreement without the uncertainty, cost and delay of the court process. Jane is a member of collaborative law groups in Leeds and Wakefield.

She is a member of Resolution, which is a body of family lawyers committed to adopting a non-confrontational and conciliatory approach.

Outside of work Jane suffers the ups and downs of being a season ticket holder at Leeds United, is still in love with Bielsa, and is hoping for a swift return to the Premier League. Jane loves attending live music - preferable rock/indie - (nothing mainstream) and can be daily found pounding the swimming pool in an effort to remain fit despite her advancing years.
