I have been a Family Law solicitor since 2010. I am Accredited as a Family Law Mediator by the Law Society of Scotland, a member of CALM Scotland and the Family Law Association. I practice exclusively in family law and deal with a broad range of contentious family matters, including all child related issues and financial issues arising from the breakdown of relationships. I regularly attend at Children’s Panel proceedings in Court and within the Hearing system and have experience in dealing with particularly difficult and emotional situations. I am committed to ensuring the minimisation of any potential trauma for children caught in the middle of disputes. I strongly feel that mediation can offer clients a calm environment where they are given the time and opportunity to discuss all aspects of their separation and hopefully create better outcomes for both parents and children than a court-imposed decision. Please feel free to contact me if you would wish to discuss any aspect of mediation further. I am happy to accept both Legal Aid and private referrals for all types of family mediation.
