Sophie Hamilton Pike

Senior Associate

I studied the Undergraduate Law Degree and the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice at the University of Aberdeen and began my traineeship at a large Aberdeen based firm in August 2014. I was delighted to join the Family Team at Balfour+Manson in August 2016 where I work in the Aberdeen Office. 

I primarily deal with Child Contact, Adoption, Interdict and complex Cohabitation and Divorce actions.  I therefore regularly appear in Sheriff Courts throughout the City and Shire in a variety of different cases. 

I enjoy working closely with my clients to form strong relationships based on trust and respect for one another.  I am keen to ensure clients are provided with the best possible service and I tailor my advice and approach to your individual circumstances. 

I enjoy undertaking court work where necessary, however I hope to dispel the myth that family law matters will always end up in a difficult court case, offering alternative ways of resolving disputes. I am a trained collaborative lawyer and enjoy working with separated couples to get the best possible outcome for them in as amicable a way as possible. 

When I am not at work you are likely to find me treading the boards with a local theatre company or spending time with my family.

Thank you so much for all you have done. We will be fine with lots of love and the relief and security you helped bring to our lives. I cannot thank you enough. I really felt you invested and had a care for the outcome and that helped keep me strong when things got completely mental.


I can’t tell you the relief that I feel after having what was a very, very helpful meeting. Absolutely brilliant! I feel completely at ease now and know that as a family this will benefit all of us.


Sophie is helpful, knowledgeable, and efficient.
