I qualified as a solicitor in 1987 and worked for 17 years in a civil and criminal litigation practice both in Dundee and Edinburgh. I joined the family law team at Balfour+Manson as a partner in 2009.
I am qualified as a solicitor advocate, which gives me extended rights of audience to appear in the Court of Session and the United Kingdom Supreme Court. I am also a family law arbitrator. I hold two specialist accreditations with the Law Society of Scotland in the fields of Family Law and Regulation of Professional Conduct Law.

I advise in all areas of family law but primarily on financial provision on divorce cases and child contact cases. I also undertake a broad range of regulatory and criminal work and appear on a regular basis before the General Teaching Council for Scotland on behalf of members of the EIS Union.
