Jamie undertook his two-year traineeship with Macnabs in 1985 and thereafter worked at other established law firms in Perthshire, until re-joining Macnabs in 2015, working mainly from our Blairgowrie office. Throughout his career, Jamie has been predominately a Court practitioner with a wealth of experience in all areas and can generally be found on a daily basis at Perth Sheriff Court.
In civil matters, Jamie deals with resolution of all Family Law related issues relating to children and financial issues following Separation and divorce. Jamie is aware that most Court cases can be difficult, stressful and emotional for all clients involved and is committed to ensuring the process is as smooth and stress-free as possible, together with achieving the best possible outcome for his clients.
Jamie regularly represents clients in Personal Injury Claims in the Sheriff Courts and the Court of Session, involving Road Traffic Accidents, Accidents at Work and Negligence Claims.
Jamie deals with all aspects of criminal work, which includes representation in the Justice of the Peace, Sheriff and High Courts. Jamie was instructed in successfully appealing a dispute to the House of Lords – a process that understandably lasted a number of years before being resolved in favour of the client.
Jamie is married with two children. He is an avid sports fan and particularly enjoys golf and rugby (We Are Warriors!).
"I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you sincerely for representing me. Your considered handling of my case played a very significant part in its outcome, of that I am convinced, and I am more grateful than I can tell you to still be driving. Your calm demeanour was very welcome too."

"I engaged the services of Jamie at a particularly bad time in my life, when quite frankly I didn’t think anything else could go wrong. Right from the moment of our first conversation, I felt that he cared and more importantly had the skills and experience to assist.
