Wrights Solicitors launch their brand new website created by Domain Design Agency.

Wrights opened a new satellite office in Peebles to bring our services to a wider range of clients in the Borders.

In 1971 our current partner Gavin Mitchell joins Wright Solicitors.

Wrights moved to our current premises in Brandon Parade East on the remodelling of the town centre, where we remain today.

In 1971 our current partner Alan McCulloch joined the firm from the Council as an apprentice.

Many of the solicitors departed the firm to serve in the Forces, including Sheriff Robinson who became a major in the army. Thankfully, they all returned after the war.

Our firm was incorporated as Alex L. Wright & Co. in Motherwell and opened an office at the Cross.

To say how much we appreciate your making our house sale/purchase as painless as possible- still my favourite lawyer!


You pulled out the stops for us last week and did more than you had to do. We certainly could not have done it without you, we both appreciate it very much.

-Grace and Denis

Thank you so much for everything you did for us and all the calls you tolerated when we were sorting out the purchase, and of course for all the work before that!
