Dorothy has over 30 years’ experience in the private client and property arena. She studied at Edinburgh and trained in Aberdeen before returning to the capital for most of her working life which has involved both client-facing and management roles.

In 2012 she took up the role of principal partner in North Berwick and continues to lead our East Lothian practice from there. She has a broad range of experience but principally specialises in the preparation of Wills, incapacity issues such as Powers of Attorney and Guardianship and the winding up of Estates. Dorothy has an approachable style and delivers practical advice to the clients.

Dorothy is also currently Chair of Citizens Advice Edinburgh. She is a full member of Solicitors for the Elderly in Scotland and a contributor to Lexis Nexis PSL service. She also co-authored a book Cohabitation (Second Edition) published by W Green.
