Our People


We are a small, friendly practice, which believes in providing good quality service at a reasonable cost.

We think our approach is what clients want most and is the reason that most of our clients have been with us for a long time. Leonards has three Solicitors, David Lingard, Lorna Turner and Eamonn Devanney. You can find out a bit more about each below.

David Lingard

David qualified as a Solicitor in 1977 and is a Director. He deals with Domestic and Commercial Property, Liquor Licensing, Wills and Estates.

David is a former member of the Council of the Law Society of Scotland and is Legal Adviser to a number of local voluntary and commercial organisations including Lanarkshire Enterprise Services Limited and Hamilton Taxi Owners’ Association.

Eamonn Devanney

Eamonn qualified as a solicitor in 1999 and is also a Director of the firm. Eamonn deals with domestic and commercial property and liquor licensing. Eamonn has a broad client base and in the context of commercial property transactions has previously acted on behalf of charities, builders/developers, housing associations, childcare providers, PLC’s, and educational institutes to name but a few.

He takes great pride in keeping clients up to date as to how matters are proceeding with their transaction. He also prefers to speak to his clients in layman’s terms rather than hide behind legal jargon.

Lorna A Turner

Lorna obtained her Law degree and Diploma in Legal Practice from Strathclyde University and qualified as a Solicitor in 2009. She joined Leonards in June 2017 as an Associate.
