About Diana

I studied Law at Aberdeen University and completed my honours degree in 2006.  Following this, I worked for the Scottish Government before returning to legal practice in 2009.

I joined Balfour+Manson in June 2009 as a Paralegal working within the Aberdeen Litigation team. Since then I have undertaken further legal studies, obtaining the Certificate of Performance in Specialist Paralegal Studies in Reparation Law from the University of Strathclyde. I attained accreditation as a Registered Paralegal from the Law Society of Scotland in 2013. Having completed the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice at Robert Gordon University in June 2016, I commenced my traineeship and will continue to focus on personal injury claims.

Away from the office, I enjoy walking my three golden retrievers around the many beaches, estates and woodlands of Aberdeen City and Shire.

Should I ever need similar services again, I will go back to Balfour+Manson without question, based on my experience in this case. I will also be recommending Balfour+Manson and specifically Diana Mackenzie to my friends and work colleagues
