Elaine is an Associate in the Family Law Team. She has over twelve years’ experience working exclusively in the area of family law, with an emphasis on cases involving financial provision upon divorce. She has acted for a number of high-net-worth individuals in complex financial provision cases involving business valuations, partnership law, sequestration and farming partnerships. She also has considerable experience advising clients on other areas of family law, including cohabitants rights, child related issues and pre-nuptial agreements.
Elaine understands the importance of maintaining constructive relationships with opponents in order to narrow and focus issues at an early stage to achieve the best possible outcome for clients. She always strives to resolve cases extra-judicially but where that is not possible she has considerable experience litigating matters. Clients value Elaine’s practical and understanding approach and her commitment to ensuring children’s needs are prioritised when family relationships breakdown.
Elaine graduated with an LLB (HONS) and Diploma in Legal Practice from the University of Dundee in 1998. She was formerly a partner in the family law team at Drummond Miller, Solicitors, in Edinburgh and is a qualified Collaborative Family Lawyer.
In her spare time, Elaine enjoys spending time with her young family and loves travel.
