Shona is an Associate in Gilson Gray’s Family Law Team. She has worked exclusively in the area of Family Law since qualifying as a solicitor in 2017, and specialised in the field during her traineeship.
Shona advises clients on a broad range of issues, including financial provision upon separation and divorce, cohabitation agreements and disputes, and child related matters. Shona is noted for her empathetic, yet no nonsense, approach. She strives to negotiate and resolve disputes outwith of a court setting but, when that is not possible, she is experienced in litigating matters both in the Sheriff Courts and in the Court of Session. She regularly appears in Sheriff Courts all over Scotland.
Shona is a member of the Family Law Association, and a Notary Public. She is a board member of Family Mediation Lothian, and also volunteers for the University of Edinburgh Free Legal Advice Clinic in her spare time.
