Senior Paralegal & Dunfermline Office Manager
Karen was born and went to school in Dunfermline, a wee while ago.
She is the senior Paralegal in the Dunfermline office and joined the firm when we opened the Fife branch 12 years ago. Karen is also the Litigation Support & Office Manager, working closely with Julian Hanrahan, the managing solicitor.
Karen started her working life in the General Accident claims department dealing with a variety of claims such as motor; home; travel; personal accident and public liability.
After working through the grades there for 6 years, she joined Henderson Boyd Jackson Solicitors in Edinburgh, as an Assistant Claims Manager in their Uninsured Loss Recovery Department, specialising in motor claims for 9 years.
Karen’s level of experience and knowledge of motor accident compensation claims is unrivalled.
Her favourite part of the job is speaking to clients and witnesses and putting them at their ease, together with carrying out the investigations required to build a case.
Outside of Work
Outside of work, Karen tries not to let their two ragdoll cats rule every aspect of family life. She is too modest to claim that she is a’ leading light’ in Amateur Musicals…but she is.
