Family Law

Our family law team is headed up by Judith Meil who is an accredited specialist in family law. The other member of the team is Catriona MacLeod who has many years of experience in the area of family law and regularly appears in the family court in Aberdeen. 

In all family cases, our focus is on solving problems. When a relationship breaks down we realise that it is a time of great stress and of great emotional upheaval for you. We are able to provide support and understanding, together with the best legal advice available. We will discuss your options and provide information to enable you to make decisions that will resolve disputes. 

Both Catriona and Judith are family law mediators and collaborative lawyers. The initial approach is to resolve disputes by negotiation as this can give you greater control and certainty of any outcome. In certain circumstances court action is necessary, both Catriona and Judith are experienced litigators and are able to represent you in the family court. Catriona and Judith are both members of the Family Law Association
