Haygarth Jones are a firm of solicitors based in St.Helens, Merseyside offering legal advice and support services to a wide range of individuals. We are dedicated solicitors who work hard to provide you with the best service.


The existing Practice stems from a number of amalgamations which were effected in fairly quick succession in the 1980's; the current practice name coming into being in November 1989. 

Perhaps the most significant change was in the Spring of 1989 when the firm, then known as Shufflebottoms (which consisted of Shufflebottom, Webster and Shield and Maxwell, Wood, Brewis and Co. joining forces in the mid-eighties) totally divided its partnership interests. The main office in Hardshaw Street, St Helens formed the new firm of Haygarth Jones and Lea while the branch in Liverpool took on the name Shufflebottoms. Mr Lea left the firm towards the end of 1992 whereby we became known as Haygarth Jones. 

The firm has been practising law in St Helens Town Centre since the beginning of the 20th Century. The firm was, even then, a sound practice based on the traditional values of a family solicitor. In more recent years, today's solicitors completed their solicitor training in this firm. 

In May 2003, Haygarth Jones opened a second office in Claughton Street. Though initially this office was occupied by our Crime Department, it was then home of the Litigation, Conveyancing and Wills and Probate Departments. In May 2015, the firm closed its Hardshaw Street office and relocated its main office to Corporation Street. The Claughton Street office closed in 2017 and all business is now carried out from our main office. 

We believe in the retention of the firm's established traditions and we are firmly of the opinion that our history and character has had an impact, and does to this day, on our reputation and standing within the town of St Helens.


Our aim is to provide a professional, personal, effective solution to all of your day-to-day legal advice needs.  


We offer a comprehensive range of legal advisory services to individuals across many diverse sectors. We use our expertise to complete this work as quickly as possible and our experience to identify potential problems before they arise.
