Katie Albiston

Senior Solicitor

I am a solicitor in the family law team within the Aberdeen office. I studied law at Aberdeen University and commenced my traineeship with a small Aberdeen firm in June 2018. I joined the family law team at Balfour+Manson in June 2021.

I have always had a keen interest in family law. I have experience primarily with divorce, separation, cohabitation and child contact and residence disputes. I have regularly appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.

I understand that people often approach a family solicitor at very difficult times in their lives and want to help support people through this process.

I specialise in family law in the Aberdeen office, working directly with Lynne Mulcahy, Kirsten Knight and Sophie Pike.

Outside of work, I volunteer for Children’s Hearings Scotland as a Panel Practice Advisor, supporting the outcomes of children’s hearings. I also volunteer for Shared Parenting Scotland and Citizens Advice, offering legal advice on a wide range of issues. 

The best thing about my job is that no two clients are the same. Every day is very different. 

When I am not at work you will find me walking my two sausage dogs or training for my next marathon.

Communication was fantastic, with every step explained clearly and simply. My solicitor was proactive and supportive, ensuring that my matter was dealt with as soon as possible with little drama. They were extremely approachable and I would definitely recommend this company.
