Kathleen McCarthy – About
I qualified as a Solicitor in 1999. Before then I worked in the legal sector for a number of years. I have had the pleasure of looking after the interests of my clients in relation to many different types of legal cases and areas of law. I do genuinely consider it to be a privilege to represent people, whether that is giving them advice generally or standing up for their interests in court.
I established McCarthy Law in 2013 as I wanted to spend as much of my time as possible assisting my clients on a one to one basis. My overheads are low meaning that my clients can get the full benefit of my legal experience without having to pay hourly rates more commonly associated with larger law firms. I offer Legal Aid where it is appropriate to do so – not all law firms do.
Since starting McCarthy Law I have been able to help clients in my key areas of experience and expertise – personal injury claims of all types; family matters including divorce and separation; wills; power of attorney work and guardianship orders… I never lose sight of the fact that every instruction I receive is in relation to a matter that is of extreme importance to my client and accordingly I treat it as such. My approach is simple… I keep my client central, deliver balanced and insightful advice to achieve the best outcomes.
My academic qualifications are a degree in Scots Law (LLB), Master of Law (Medicine, Law and Ethics), and Notary Public. I am a member of the Family Law Association.
