Jessica MacNeilage


I studied at the University of Edinburgh for both the LLB and Diploma in Professional Legal Practice, graduating in May 2020. After graduating I completed my traineeship with a firm in Edinburgh, completing seats in the commercial property, construction, litigation, and private client teams.

I joined Balfour+Manson in 2022. I work in the Private Client team and provide advice to clients on a variety of matters including the drafting of Wills, the granting and operation of Powers of Attorney, and the administration of deceased persons’ estates.

Should you wish to have a Will or Power of Attorney drafted, or require assistance with winding up an estate, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

The best thing about my job is meeting clients from all walks of life and being able to help people going through challenging times by guiding them through the different processes.

When I’m not at work you will find me walking my dog, horse riding, and generally spending as much time outdoors as possible (come rain or shine!)

Jessica MacNeilage was engaged to assist with the winding up of my mother’s estate. Throughout our dealings with Jessica, she was professional and kept us informed of any delays. Dealing with the passing of a loved one can be difficult, but Jessica helped us navigate through the required tasks with ease.

From our first meeting to discuss Mums death and her estate through to completion, Jessica has helped to make the whole process as easy for us as possible. Jessica was always clear with her instructions and communications, was easy to reach if we had questions and was a pleasure to deal with. She kept us fully informed of progress, and gave us accurate timelines throughout the whole process. I would not hesitate to recommend Jessica to family or friends. Thank you so much for all your help.
