Scott Mackenzie

"I see myself as a guide and what I take pride in is standing alongside my clients and guiding them through the often complex and difficult stages of the legal process. I see it as my job to support my clients with a minimum of stress, and with as much transparency as possible so that they feel they’re getting the best outcome. 

I started as a Law Clerk at Braye Cragg while completing my university studies and feel fortunate that I was able to balance study and work in my hometown. I now find it particularly rewarding to be able to service my broad local networks and take some of the burden of the legal process away from my clients.

Having a diverse range of legal knowledge, as well as the experience of understanding how clients react to certain stages of the legal process, helps me to assist my clients in being able to explain and prepare them for what to expect.

Outside of work I enjoy playing cricket and hockey in the local competitions."
