About Jenna

I joined Balfour+Manson in 2014 having studied at the University of Glasgow and having trained with a respected specialist medical negligence and personal injury firm.

Personal injury and medical negligence have always been where my passion lies and I have sought to maintain a diverse case load regularly dealing with complex and challenging cases.  On any given day, I could be dealing with anything from road traffic accidents to criminal injury compensation authority applications to medical negligence claims.  I recognise that when a client comes to see me, it is generally because they are going through a difficult and upsetting period in their life and need assistance.   The decision to approach a solicitor is generally not taken lightly and my main objective in dealing with any case is to make the process as easy and as stress free as possible while ensuring the best possible result for my client.

In an attempt to support the future generation of solicitors, I take part in Aberdeen University’s Mentoring Programme and also attend law events at both Aberdeen University and Robert Gordon University.  Having previously been a committee member of the Glasgow Bar Association, I now serve as a committee member of the Aberdeen Bar Association whose main objective is to support and represent the Bar in Aberdeen.

Throughout my time with Balfour+Manson, I have also been heavily involved with charity work for our chosen charity of the year.  In an effort to support MS society in 2016, I took part in a 10k assault course and completed my first skydive.  

A first class solicitor. Jenna was there with me every step forward to a positive conclusion.
