About us

Your business will be handled and supervised throughout by our Solicitor Colin Bell who may be contacted in our Thornhill office each morning and in Sanquhar in the afternoons.

Colin graduated from Glasgow University in 1988 with a First Class Honours Degree in Tax Law and subsequently qualified as a Scottish Chartered Accountant and Solicitor.

Colin has a particular interest in professional ethics and is a Vice Chairman of the Scottish Solicitors Discipline Tribunal. In September 2015 Colin took up a part-time tutor post at the University of Glasgow School of Law.  

A small team of experienced secretarial staff, headed by Louise Fisher, provide an efficient but personal service.  Your calls will be answered promptly and (wherever possible) directed immediately to our Solicitor.

We also employ two fully qualified paralegals. In Thornhill, Michelle Milne specialises in Wills, Trusts and Estates, whilst in Sanquhar Jill Hextall deals with residential conveyancing, estate agency and property matters generally. Jill and Michelle are both Law Society of Scotland registered Paralegals.

Our estate agency is supervised by Anne Hughes, Property Manageress, who provides invaluable advice on how best to market your property for sale locally and on the internet.
