Joseph G Boyd & Co Court Lawyers

We are a mixed Court practice law firm based in Edinburgh city centre. We undertake cases in Criminal Defence, Civil Litigation, and Children’s Hearings, all over Scotland.

We are experienced and knowledgable in the legal areas we practice, and we pride ourselves on providing an excellent client service, by understanding the differing needs of our clients, according to their respective situations.

We understand that going to Court or a Tribunal, in any circumstances, can be a daunting and stressful experience for a lot of people. That is why we strive to go the extra mile to making the process as comfortable as possible for our clients. This includes providing Legal Aid funding, where we can, in order that our clients don’t have to experience additional financial anxiety to that of the legal issue they are facing.

We are passionate about helping those people who need it, delivering justice for them when they cannot do this for themselves, and playing our part in as many people as possible being able to access justice and legal services when they need to.
