Claire started with Allan McDougall Solicitors in 2000 and has always worked within the personal injury team dealing with all aspects of personal injury and Court work. Providing various levels of administrative support within the department, Claire is PA to Jacqueline Raitt, a partner, assisting Jacqueline with the smooth running of her cases on a day-to-day basis.
Claire enjoys working in a busy legal environment, and this has been her career of choice since leaving school. Gaining her first position as a Court Runner/Office Junior in a small firm gave her good grounding and a wealth of experience for the years that have followed. Claire has worked in different areas of litigation within Edinburgh law firms throughout the years but prefers the varied and interesting nature of personal injury law.
Claire has a Paralegal Qualification in Civil Court Work.
When not in the office, Claire enjoys hillwalking. Her favourite getaway is holidays with her family in the Lake District, and she loves nothing better than climbing the fells. She has climbed some of the highest in the Lakes, including Scafell Pike, Skiddaw and Blencathra. She also enjoys dining out with friends and socialising.
