Our Family Law Team has marked its expertise with two promotions and a specialist accreditation from the Law Society of Scotland.


Ann-Marie Chalmers, who joined the firm as part of our merger with Glasgow law practice Jeffrey Aitken, has been promoted to Senior Associate and her work in this area has been recognised with a Law Society of Scotland Specialist Accreditation in Family Law.

David Coutts has been promoted to Associate as part of the firm’s investment in his work in the Family Law Team.

Ann-Marie and David join with the skills and experience brought by partner Janice Jones, who leads the team and who is also an Accredited Specialist in Family Law.

The range of work of the team means that every area of family law is covered, across divorce, separation agreements, children, cohabitation agreements and claims, and pre and post-nuptial agreements.

Speaking following the news of her accreditation, Ann-Marie said:

The specialist accreditation adds to the recognition of the expertise of the family law team. I am delighted to join Janice as a second accredited specialist in the team. The recent promotions and this news means our clients can be sure of an excellent level of experience in difficult and often emotionally charged life changing situations.

Managing Partner Murray McCall said:

I am really proud of the recent achievements of our Family Law Team. The promotions of Ann-Marie and David and the second specialist accreditation within the team are all evidence of their expertise and experience. It is great to see the team develop in this way under Janice’s leadership.
