Byron has been shortlisted as ‘International Family Lawyer of the Year’ within Jordan’s prestigious Family Law awards, to be held in London in November.
Byron is ranked in both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners as a leading barrister in divorce and matrimonial finance.
He has been noted in the Legal 500 for his ‘first-rate legal knowledge’, for his especial expertise on trusts and cohabitation issues and also for his ‘robust style which clients love’.
In Chambers and Partners he has recently been described as ‘a very intelligent and talented advocate’ who always ‘goes the extra mile for his clients’. It is considered in the directory that ‘he will go on to achieve great things’.
Byron is a family law specialist. His work covers the range of private client situations, but his particular expertise is in matrimonial finance cases. His broader practice encompasses Inheritance Act cases, disputes about children, proceedings where there are insolvency issues, cohabitation disputes and trusts.
Byron appears as an advocate in courts from the County Court through to the Court of Appeal. He is frequently retained in an advisory capacity, especially with regard to Inheritance Act and Trust of Land matters. He recognises different people assimilate information in different ways: some clients want an issue dissected in a written opinion; others prefer the interaction that comes from a face-to-face conference.
For Byron, the approach taken is always client-led – it is the one with which his client is most at ease, which best helps them take control of their case and feel empowered in working towards its resolution.
Byron has been seconded by Expatriate Law to work within Al Rowaad Advocates in Dubai, where he will advise British expatriates in the region.
Byron James client Testimonials
Going through divorce was an extremely difficult time. I was emotionally drained and could not see how I was going to move forward. This is when Byron James from E.L helped!
Byron was caring and considerate of my emotions and took the time to explain complex options and processes in a way that I could understand. He was honest and realistic with his advice and always gave me constructive information.
Byron remained calm and supportive throughout and was always there reassuring me when I felt lost and depleted.
I can honestly say that Byron has been my rock and worked incredibly hard often going above and beyond to help me. Initially I was concerned about the time difference between the UK and Dubai but Byron was always there when I needed him the most often answering my calls and emails even during out of office hours.
Byron is a true professional and remains focussed towards achieving the end goal. Fortunately for me, Byron does not like to lose. He was definitely my strength and the driving force behind my super successful outcome. A big big thank you to all at E.L but especially Byron. Words cannot express how grateful I am.SM
