John Jackson & Dick: a law firm with a difference. Legal solutions for individuals and families. And also great advice on company and commercial law. The highest professional service - with a friendly face and the personal touch.

Founded in 1933, we have offices at the heart of the Lanarkshire towns of Hamilton and Strathaven. Since then, we have earned, and work hard to retain, a reputation envied by many other law firms for providing high-quality personal legal services: residential conveyancing, Inheritance Tax and asset protection advice, wills, trusts and executries; divorce and family law; civil court and employment representation.

But we are also proud to offer company and commercial law services at a level normally only available from much larger city firms.

Relaxed, friendly and accessible - whatever your legal problem, we have the skills, expertise and experience to provide the solution.

Corona virus / Covid 19 - Emergency Measures

Update 1 November 2020

On 24 March 2020, we had to close our offices to the public, except for appointments which cannot be conducted remotely. Regulations and guidance have changed little, but we have adapted our offices and systems to allow for provision of services fairly normally. Surprisingly, all areas of our work have recovered strongly from the initial dip, and we have been back to a full staff since July. Workload is such that we are seeking to recruit additional solicitors and support staff.

Many of us have been working from homes, with a small team working in isolation in Hamilton office. Our remote IT systems have worked well. Our phone numbers, 01698 281747 and 01357 522959 are operating normally and calls can be transferred to our staff. Most meetings have been conducted by video-conference.

We can be contacted by e-mail on [email protected] and e-mail addresses of specific solicitors can be found in the website or on through

New Office

Our prominent new offices at 50 Cadzow Street opened on 23 March 2020, just as Coronavirus lockdown was announced. The spacious ground floor reception area and meeting room assist greatly with "social distancing", protecting both clients and staff.

Ground Floor Ground floor reception area and offices

Since the 1950's, John Jackson & Dick had shared its buildings with an RBS branch. RBS's re-location to new premises gave us an unique opportunity to unify the two. We bought it in November 2019, then extensive renovation and alterations took about four months. Ground floor entrance and rooms allow much improved access for disabled and elderly clients. Energy-efficient systems, including solar electricity, have been installed, to reduce our carbon footpring.


Following the successful integration of long-established Motherwell firm, Marshall Ross & Munro into John Jackson & Dick since November 2018, MRM's former principal, Charles Bow, who joined us as a Consultant, fully retired in October 2020.

His retirement coincided with that of Kenneth Miller, after 36 years as a Partner then Director of John Jackson & Dick. Kenneth has anchored our residential conveyancing service for most of that period, in both Hamilton and Strathaven.

We wish them both all the best for their well-earned retirements.

Years ago, Kenneth said he wanted to retire at 65. In preparation for the retirements, in recent years we have appointed three solicitors who have progressively been assuming their caseloads. Despite the dire economic predictions, our caseload has expanded sharply, and we are now seeking additional solicitors and support staff. Subject to Coronavirus guidelines, we shall be resuming and increasing services at Strathaven.
