Sarah joined the business in 2013 after completing her LLB with French Law and Diploma in Legal Practice at Aberdeen University & Stirling University. During her LLB, Sarah studied in Lyon, France for a year under the Erasmus programme. Sarah started her traineeship not long after joining Watermans and gained experience in family law, conveyancing, and dealing with Wills, Executries and Power of Attorney.
Sarah now works within the family law team and specialises in family law, and advises clients in relation to separation, cohabitation, divorce, and child law matters. Sarah has experience in regularly appearing in the Sheriff Court and instructing Counsel in Court of Session actions.
"Outside of work I enjoy running, hill walking and yoga. I have competed in lots of marathons and running events, including a few ultra-marathons! I generally enjoy being in the outdoors as much as possible.
I have volunteered as a Panel Member with the Children’s Panel for several years, which I find extremely rewarding and relevant to my job.
Best Thing About The Job
"I particularly enjoy the satisfaction of helping clients during very stressful and difficult times in their lives by providing coherent and practical advice and solutions. I believe that my understanding approach helps in building relationships with clients to get the best possible outcome for them."
