Dylan Mitchell

Trainee Solicitor

Private Client

About Dylan

Originally from west-coast Dumbarton, I moved to Edinburgh in 2014 to start my law degree at the University of Edinburgh. I then completed my Diploma in legal practice at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, graduating in 2020. Despite a short COVID delay, I was lucky enough to start my traineeship in January 2021, beginning in our Private Client team.

I have always been motivated by people and passionate about helping others.  I have been volunteering with various charities since I was 16 and currently sit as a Trustee of my home-town Citizens Advice Bureau.

Outside of work, you'll find me walking our Romanian rescue dog, Sandy.  In normal circumstances I'd normally be in the Usher Hall or SSE Hydro listening to the music of John Williams, Hans Zimmer, or Ramin Djawadi.

Specialist area

My first seat is in our Private Client department where I assist Karen Phillips, James Hyams and Graeme Thomson, among others, on a range of matters including Executries, Wills and Powers of Attorney.
