Our award-winning team of family lawyers based in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and East Lothian help clients find the most beneficial outcomes for themselves and families, often in difficult circumstances.

Family Law & Divorce

As well as helping you achieve the best possible outcome, we can minimise the likelihood of future problems. At the start of a relationship, you may not consider the possibility of separation, but marriage, civil partnership and cohabitation all create legal rights and obligations. By making a pre-nuptial or cohabitation agreement , for example, you can prevent legal disputes about those rights and obligations in the future.

We are seeing increasing demand for Collaborative Law - a process of negotiation with emphasis on direct communication in a constructive way to resolve issues arising during separation and divorce. A Collaborative approach can help you achieve an effective co-parenting relationship for the future. Our team offers both traditional representation and the Collaborative approach.

Whatever your situation, we can offer you sensitive, cost effective, expert advice. On a practical level, we also let you choose how you deal with us – face to face, by phone or by email - whatever method will make life easier for you.
