About Michaela

I first joined Balfour+Manson in January 2014 as an Administration Assistant within the Property Department, before commencing my traineeship in August 2014. I spent the final year of my traineeship in the Litigation Department, gaining experience in Medical Negligence and Personal Injury before joining the team as a Solicitor in August 2016.

I completed my legal studies at the University of Aberdeen, where I volunteered with the Aberdeen Law Project – providing pro bono legal advice and representation to members of the public.

Outside of work, I am a volunteer instructor with Leith Sea Cadets.

 

you and your staff have provided us with a first class service and we are indebted to you. I doubt that we could have been represented or advised more professionally

Specialist area

I specialise in Medical Negligence and Personal Injury work, undertaking a wide variety of cases in the Court of Session and the All-Scotland Personal Injury Court in Edinburgh. I work closely with Ann Logan, a Law Society of Scotland Accredited Specialist in Medical Negligence Law.

I am also experienced in cases involving the Voluntary Pre-Action Protocol for Cases Involving Clinical Negligence and the Compulsory Protocol for Personal Injury Cases.

I aim to provide an empathetic and personable service, whilst providing straightforward advice in cases which can often be complex.
