I am a solicitor in the Family Law Team within the Edinburgh Office. I undertook both my Law Degree and the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice at the University of Edinburgh, and joined Balfour+Manson as a trainee solicitor after graduating. I was delighted to be able to stay on with the firm after I qualified as a solicitor, and thoroughly enjoy being part of the Family Law Team.
I have a particular interest in Child Law, and outside of work I currently volunteer with Shared Parenting Scotland and the Scottish Child Law Centre, providing free legal information in connection with the law as it relates to families and children.
As a solicitor in the Family Law Team, I specialise in a variety of matters including divorce, cohabitation, child residence and relocation, and contact disputes. Although I am based in the Edinburgh office, I work closely with my colleagues in both Edinburgh and Aberdeen. I have experience in appearing at various Sheriff Courts across Scotland, and regularly act as a Local Agent for actions raised at the Court of Session.
I have found working in this area to be extremely rewarding, and I am passionate about assisting clients to find the best resolution for them and their families at what is often a difficult time in their lives.
