Family law expert becomes dual accredited
Simpson & Marwick’s David Coutts has become dual accredited in both family and child law by the Law Society of Scotland.
The accolade is a recognition of a solicitor’s proven specialist knowledge and is designed to help the public identify experts in each area of law, particularly in more complex cases.
He said: “Whilst I’ve practiced entirely within family law since qualifying, I’ve always sought to cover and gain experience across a broad spectrum of issues, acting for local authorities and a wide variety of private clients.
“I’m thrilled to have received my second accreditation.”
Rob Aberdein, chief executive of Simpsons & Marwick, said: “Compared with other family lawyers of his experience, David has covered an especially diverse range of Family Law work.
“David’s experience in both a public and private law setting gives him a different perspective – and he’s able to guide our clients through challenging family law disputes in a way that is truly impressive.”
