Brittany has recently joined the family team as an NQ Solicitor having undertaken a specialised traineeship in Family Law from which she qualified in July 2019. Brittany is therefore already experienced in dealing with all family law matters both within the Sheriff Court and at the Court of Session.
Brittany is comfortable both working with clients as lead solicitor and also as part of a team in more complex cases. Brittany is particularly knowledgeable in both financial provision and Hague Abduction cases within the Court of Session.
She is diligent and compassionate in the way she deals with clients and works in order to remove the stress from clients who find themselves in a difficult situation.
