Litigation (Personal)

About Diana

I have been a member of the Balfour+Manson Aberdeen Litigation team since 2009. Since then I have pursued compensation claims exclusively for those who have been injured as a result of accidents, assaults and abuse. It is important to me that clients feel comfortable and at ease, after what has usually been a traumatic event resulting in their injury. The more I know about a client, the better I can understand what is important to them. Every client is treated as an individual with advice tailored to their specific needs and circumstances to ensure the best outcome for each client. For over 10 years, I have acted for diverse range of clients suffering a wide variety of physical and psychological injuries and there is no substitute for obtaining the right result for my clients.

Away from the office, I enjoy walking my dogs around the many beaches, estates and woodlands of Aberdeen City and Shire. I love the outdoors and am often running, hiking, swimming or paddle-boarding.

I am also President of Women Connect, a networking group for like-minded professional and businesswomen predominantly based in Aberdeen City and Shire. It is an opportunity to support other women to develop and grow their business offering skills workshops and networking.

Friendly, confident and immediately put me at ease... Good and professional solicitor... I was kept informed all the time by Diana Mackenzie who dealt with the case, always ensured she chased up things on my behalf – I am very happy with the level of the service I received. I will recommend Balfour+Manson to friends and family
