As one of only three Dundee lawyers accredited as a Specialist in Family Law by the Law Society of Scotland, I have dedicated my working life to supporting local families.
After graduating in Law from the University of Dundee, I spent 15 years with one of Scotland’s largest law firms, latterly as a Partner.
As a strong believer that court is a last resort, I am also trained in Collaborative Law and a Family Law Arbitration Group Scotland (FLAGS) Arbitrator, using various skills and techniques to help my clients reach a dignified and amicable settlement.
A former Dean of the Dundee Faculty, I am a familiar face at Dundee Sheriff Court and experienced in instructing Counsel in Court of Session cases.
A former Director of local charity Relationships Scotland – Family Mediation Tayside and Fife, I have also shared my experience in Professional Ethics with the next generation of lawyers, tutoring postgraduates on the Diploma in Legal Practice Course at the University of Dundee for almost a decade.
