“What I like best about my job is making a difference for my clients who are often in difficult situations.”
Born and educated in Aberdeen I was admitted as a solicitor in 1985. I have specialised in criminal court work and have been successfully representing clients for over 30 years.
Following a rigorous assessment process I was admitted as a Solicitor Advocate in 2008 by the Law Society of Scotland which conferred upon me extended rights of audience to represent clients charged with the most serious of crimes in the High Court of Justiciary.
I am a former tutor in Criminal Advocacy at Aberdeen University and was an advisor to the Criminal Law Committee of the Law Society of Scotland.
I am registered to provide criminal legal assistance by the Scottish Legal Aid Board and can provide advice on eligibility for legal aid and alternative payment arrangements.
