Founding Partner Nicholas James Scullion went to University at 22 as a mature student and did his apprenticeship at Glasgow City Chambers.
He worked in the Public Sector for a few years before starting his own business in 1979 with his wife Dorothy, then known as Nicholas J. Scullion & Co. Solicitors.
Specialising in Conveyancing he moved into offices at 71 Quarry Street Hamilton, where he worked as a Sole Practitioner until the miners’ strike when he diversified into court work. He quickly developed a reputation as an excellent performer, winning cases other Solicitors would not take on. He remains one of the leading Criminal Defence and Road Traffic lawyers in Scotland.
He is passionate about the LAW and people.
As the firm grew, Nicholas moved to 5 Church Street, Hamilton and by 1992 employed 7 Solicitors.
The Conveyancing Department expanded and we created an award winning team of hard working professionals, of which we are very proud. We now have one of the top ten practices in Scotland and Property LAW is at the core of our business – going from strength to strength.
We re-branded from Nicholas J. Scullion & Co to Scullion LAW in 2010 after we won the prestigious Criminal LAW Firm of the Year Award. Since then we have won several national awards including the Excellence in Client Care Award 2016 and the Commitment to the Community 2019.
We have offices in Hamilton, Saltmarket Glasgow and West End. We can represent clients throughout Scotland and are always happy to help.
Mr Scullion continues to work as a Consultant and his son Nicholas now runs the business working with the board of Directors including Nigel Scullion and Kris Buchanan with the support of 30 legal professionals. Our people are core to the success of the firm.
Over the last 40 years, we have developed an enviable reputation for excellent service by always putting clients first.
Our main areas of focus are: Criminal LAW, Road Traffic LAW, Family LAW, Wills & Future Planning, Estates and Property LAW.
