About Stewart

Learn Stewart’s areas of practice.

During 2008, the E. Stewart Jones Law Firm celebrated 110 years of service to the people of New York. The firm was founded in 1898 by Abbott H. Jones, son of an American father and a Chilean mother who had met and married in Valpariso, Chile. Born into humble circumstances, Abbott never went to college or law school, but studied the law on his own as a clerk in a law office and ultimately gained admission to the Bar.

 

Thereafter, Abbott developed an extensive private practice, went on to serve as City Court Judge in Troy and was ultimately elected to the position of Rensselaer County District Attorney. Abbott passed away in 1939, by which time his son, E. Stewart Jones, Sr., had joined him in the practice.

 

While Abbott Jones' career brought him great stature in the Capital Region, it was the courtroom skill, creativity and courage of his son, E. Stewart Jones, Sr. which gained the firm statewide and national recognition for its outstanding results.


E. Stewart Jones, Sr. was ably complemented by the brilliant and witty Arthur L. Rosen. As Mr. Jones once said: "He (Mr. Rosen) made the bullets, and I shot them".

 

Suggesting that genes are not irrelevant to inter-generational success, the legendary career of E. Stewart Jones, Sr. has in a very different era been matched by his son, E. Stewart Jones, Jr., whose own passion, intelligence and ability in the courtroom have allowed him to continue the firm's history of obtaining exceptional results for its clients.

 

E. Stewart Jones, Jr. began practicing with the firm in 1966 and was joined by his younger brother, Farley, in 1982. The tradition established through three generations of Joneses is now also being carried on with vigor and competence by George E. LaMarche III, Meghan Rielly Keenholts and Sarah Spain Holt, who joined the firm in 2000, 2005 and 2009 respectively.

 

Mr. LaMarche, Ms. Keenholts, Ms. Holt and others who will no doubt follow them, are welcome additions to the family circle, and carriers in their own right of a history of outstanding service to the people of the Capital Region and the State of New York.

Review for my case with this firm
I was in a horrible head on collision in July of 2018. A friend from downstate ny recommened this firm, E Stewart Jones, Hacker and Murphy. I had John Harwick as my attorney and attorney Mr Jones assisted on my case. This firm is an amazing team. No questions left unanswered, communication was outstanding and my mind put at ease with my conversations with Mr Harwick. They fought my case for me and am entirely pleased with their job. Thank you to everyone who assisted me through out a difficult situation. I was fortunate to have your team with me. Lee Ann Sala
