Ayrshire's Expert Legal Advice Centre.


We are a Firm of Solicitors based in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire and operating in courts across Scotland. Tony is a former senior police officer with over 25 years experience of investigating crime and James formerly worked in the Social Work/Family Support sector. This gives TBL a unique blend of in-depth knowledge and practical experience in the fields of Criminal and Family Law. We are committed to providing the best service possible to ensure the best outcomes for all our clients.

We refer to our Firm as a Legal Advice Centre and we are based in Kilmarnock Town Centre, near to Kilmarnock Sheriff Court. We fully understand that involvement with the law or the courts can be stressful and sometimes traumatic. We help with managing the crisis in your life by providing a full-service approach to litigation.

We are very well placed to deal with your legal matters. Our aim is to build long-standing relationships with our clients and families, based on trust and the highest standards of professional ethics. That way you will come back to us again and again no matter the legal issue. We strive to redefine the role of the law firm to deliver excellent results for clients.


Our areas of practice are extensive and stretch across the whole spectrum of all Criminal and Family Law matters. You can rely on us to deal with your case promptly and with the greatest professionalism. We have extensive expertise in all forms of Criminal Law including Road Traffic Offences, Domestic Abuse, Fraud and Embezzlement . We also provide expert advice in relation to Divorce and Separation (including Financial Provision); Contact and Residence (including court orders); Children's Hearings and Referrals; and Non-Harassment Orders and Interdicts.

Due to recent changes in the law, we are required to provide you with up-front details of costs for legal advice but we can also grant legal aid, if necessary. The Law Society has issued guidance on what is called 'Transparent Pricing' which is information that must be made available to clients about fees, outlays and costs incurred if you to choose to instruct us as your Solicitor.  Please see relevant sections on this site on our services for more details regarding costs. We will also explore the possibility of granting legal aid. Full details of costs/price list are provided in our Terms of Business which will be provided to on confirmation of instructions in your case. Don't hesitate to get in touch for your initial free consultation.
