Lesley Anderson Law Is Expanding

Lesley Anderson LLB (HONS) DIP LP NP is an accredited Solicitor Advocate specialising in family law and, separately, child law. Lesley has been in practice since 2005 and sits as Chairperson of the Family Law Association and Vice-Chair Civil of the Society of Solicitor Advocates. 

Since 2017, Lesley has been a qualified Solicitor Advocate, allowing her rights of audience in the higher Scottish courts. She is a Falkirk Bairn – who has brought her expertise home to benefit the local area. Lesley always wanted to be a lawyer, having been inspired by the TV programme LA Law. After obtaining an Honours Degree and Diploma in Legal Practice from Glasgow University, Lesley spent time living in Dublin, Manchester and London before returning to Scotland. Gaining experience in several Legal Firms, including nine years with Russel and Aitken, Lesley established Lesley Anderson Law in January 2019.

The law firm operates from bespoke offices within Falkirk Town Centre and, in just three years, they have bought additional premises at 25 Vicar Street and have employed local people. They are absolutely delighted to be expanding their premises and are recruiting for additional members of their team. Lesley is joined by her Personal Assistant & Office Manager Claire and her Trainee Rachel.

The firm offers an expert legal service and aim to provide their clients with the ability to make an informed choice, and therefore offer a free initial consultation to prospective clients across Scotland.

With the business being just over a year old when the pandemic hit, they chose not to furlough their staff and to work throughout. This decision benefitted their clients as they were able to progress work and as a result the business has seen huge growth.

They offer a range of legal services, including:
