how to divorce without ruining your relationship


Accredited family law. Changing the way we divorce. Support and advice


Thanks for taking the time to visit my website. I have specialised in Family Law for the past 25 years.  During that time, I have been a partner in leading Scottish Family Law teams. Increasingly, I found myself doing more administration and supervision and less of the work that I really enjoy: meeting clients. I decided to set up my own practice so that I can better devote my time to client work and structure my day around meeting your needs. I aim to provide you with “big firm” quality with a personal touch. Over the past 25 years there really is no family law issue that I haven’t encountered. I have also helped to change the landscape of how we go about divorce and separation in Scotland and have pioneered a move a way from the contentious and acrimonious  to the respectful and dignified divorce. I firmly believe that with the right support almost everyone can separate and divorce well. I want you to look back and feel a sense of satisfaction that you did all you could to achieve a good divorce. If you choose to work with me, I believe you can.
