About Dionne

Prior to joining Balfour+Manson I worked as a Legal Secretary within the Private Client division for another Edinburgh law firm. I have previous experience of working for commercial real estate agencies and Chartered Surveyors as well as Chartered Psychologists who specialise in providing Medico-Legal Reports in relation to personal injury cases.

I graduated from Edinburgh Napier University in 2017 and I am currently studying the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice at Edinburgh University which finishes in May of this year.  I will officially begin my legal traineeship with the firm this August.

In my spare time I like to keep fit by doing lots of circuit training and boxing.

Specialist area

Having started with the firm back in August 2014, I began as a Property Sales Assistant within the firm’s estate agency team and very much enjoyed having direct contact with our clients as well as working within a very friendly and approachable team.  In February 2017 I was given the opportunity to manage our Marketing and Events department for one year where I was involved with organising the firm’s annual events and working with lots of people I would not have otherwise had the opportunity to work with.

I am now pleased to have joined the firm’s Commercial department in advance of my traineeship officially starting.  I am very much looking forward to being involved in legal work and putting the skills I have learned from my law degree and Diploma to good use.
