Please note - following the necessary changes required by covid and the closing of the courts we have decided to close our office in Motherwell and we are now working from home. We have changed our address to a PO Box but our telephone number and email addresses remain the same.
We are now meeting clients via zoom which is often more convenient to clients who no longer require to take time off or travel to our office. We have also used this time to concentrate our work on incapacity law.
Please note that most court hearings continue to be remote hearings using the courts webex system.
We will continue to provide updates and developments on this page and via our Facebook page.

For more information please contact us via the message facility. We have limited access to telephones and post at this time. We hope to update this page with further information as we work out working practices for our office. Also see our Facebook feed on our home page.
We currently have limited secretarial support and working from home. Along with other solicitors we are finding that everything we are doing is taking much longer than it took when we had our office set up. There is much trial and error in working out ways our office can now work. We have limited phone lines, copier facilities and slower internet connections. We would ask people to email or telephone our office and we will respond as soon as possible. This may take a number of days as we do not have access to all paper files. Thank you for your understanding.
We are now meetings with client via zoom. Changes have been made to legislation to allow for the signing of legal aid papers, the witnessing of documents and Notarial executions over such platforms. With zoom you do not need to have a zoom account. If you have a smartphone, tablet or computer we can email you a link and arrange a time for our meeting. This may be more convenient for many clients who will no longer need to take a full afternoon out of there day to attend for a short meeting. We can also use Skype if necessary.
Where necessary (and covid risk permitting) we can arrange home visits for meetings and signature of documents.
In terms of changes to legislation we are happy to receive service of papers by email. Please telephone our office to confirm email address for service of papers. Service by email is preferred due to the covid risk in handling papers.
