I joined Balfour+Manson LLP in 2013 and trained with the firm. I conduct civil litigation in the Court of Session, Sheriff Court and the All Scotland Personal Injury Court at Edinburgh in a wide range of matters, including Personal Injury, Medical Negligence and Commercial Actions.
During my training with the firm, I spent twelve months as a member of David Flint's Sheriff Court team. During that time I managed a general civil litigation caseload, with my primary focus on effective dispute resolution. As part of my training, I appeared several times each week at Edinburgh Sheriff Court as local and principal agent on behalf of both pursuer and defender clients, in all civil matters. I have advocacy experience at all stages of procedure, including Options Hearing, Proof and Appeal to the Sheriff Principal. I continue to appear.
In my spare time I enjoy keeping active. In particular, I enjoy football and running. I have completed the Edinburgh Marathon in 2015 and 2016.
Thank you for all your sterling work and assistance to get me to the end of a very long road. It is all very much appreciatedClient
I work in the Litigation Department for Ann Logan, Fred Tyler and David Short, Head of Litigation. I have a particular specialism in pursuing medical negligence claims on behalf of individuals. I have experience in high value catastrophic injury claims, including delayed diagnosis and GP failures to refer. I also have experience of cases involving surgical injury, brain injury, traumatic birth, eye surgery and dental cases.
I also represent individuals in personal injury claims arising from road traffic accidents, accidents at work, and any other accident resulting in injury and damage through no fault of the individual. My aim with each and every claim is to resolve it efficiently, with clear and logical advice throughout and fair compensation for those who have suffered, including those with life changing injuries. My focus is on achieving the very best results for each client in their specific circumstances.
