Susan B. Jones is a Family Law practitioner in Lexington, Kentucky. The focus of Ms. Jones’ practice is divorce, custody, adoption, domestic violence, dependency/neglect/abuse, pre nuptial and post nuptial agreements.
Ms. Jones has worked in the past to settle cases collaboratively and has participated in the mediation of numerous family law actions. After many years of practice, Ms. Jones believes the first and best approach to all cases is to reach settlement or proceed through mediation for settlement, if at all feasible. Certainly there are cases when litigation is the only reasonable approach, and if that is the case litigation will be conducted professionally and respectfully within the judicial system.
In addition to working with private clients, Ms. Jones finds her work as a Guardian ad Litem for neglected, dependent and abused children to be very rewarding. She has also lectured at numerous Continuing Legal Education seminars regarding various family law issues.
Prior to her work as an attorney, Ms. Jones was a Masters level mental health professional. She worked with Comprehensive Care at the Fayette County Detention Center and also counseled with inpatient psychiatric clients. She provided mental health evaluation and treatment for all populations within the psychiatric hospital; including the children’s unit, adolescent unit, adult unit and addictive disease unit. Ms. Jones is keenly aware of the emotional aspects that clients face proceeding through a divorce and other family law matters due to her earlier career as a mental health professional.
The mission of our office is to assist families proceeding through divorce and other family law matters in a way that will be the least stressful and the most economically viable under the given circumstances.
