Cwmbran-based law firm Rubin Lewis O’Brien has appointed an experienced solicitor to its successful family department.

Jonathan Hall, 40, joins the firm after nearly two decades in the legal profession in South Wales.

Partner and head of family department Valerie Henley said: “We are incredibly lucky to have brought Jonathan on board and he brings a great deal of experience and enthusiasm to our well-established team in the family department.”

Mr Hall, who has worked in the legal profession since 2000, has spent his entire career in South Wales and he views the move to Rubin Lewis O’Brien as a perfect fit.

He said: “There are many reasons I was confident that this would be the perfect move for me. Not only does Rubin Lewis O’Brien have an excellent reputation as a firm, but the expertise and talent within the family department made this a very attractive proposition.”

Mr Hall, who has a young family, is a keen Liverpool supporter as well as film and music enthusiast.

“Working with this team was exactly what I was looking for. Being able to benefit from their knowledge of this area of law, as well as learn from them, made perfect sense to me at this stage in my career.

"Also, seeing how two of the team - Angharad and Rhys - have both made the progression to partner at an impressive pace, it certainly gives me great hope that I can emulate the good work they do and work towards that goal.”

Rubin Lewis O'Brien provides legal advice to both individuals and businesses.
