Family Law


About Martin

I joined Balfour+Manson in August 2015 and have been a member of the Family Law Team since 2016. Before pursuing a career in law, I worked in education and was most recently Head of Humanities in a large international school in the United Arab Emirates.

Specialist area

I am a solicitor in the firm’s Family Law Team and work closely with Alastair Milne. I mainly undertake education law and regulatory work and act on behalf of members of the EIS Union in referrals to the General Teaching Council for Scotland. My work includes representing clients facing a broad range of disciplinary and regulatory matters, criminal prosecutions and associated referrals to Disclosure Scotland. I regularly appear before tribunals and in the civil and criminal courts.

I also assist David Short and Alastair Milne when instructed in Fatal Accident Inquiries and have most recently been involved in representing the interests of members of the British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA) at the Clutha Vaults Fatal Accident Inquiry.
