About me

Richard M Donaldson


I am a native Shetlander, who studied law at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen. I graduated with first class honours in 2009 and went on to complete the Diploma in Legal Practice, passing with distinction in 2010.

Returning to Shetland in 2010 to start my traineeship with a well-known local firm, I became a fully qualified solicitor in 2012.  I continued with that firm until 2021, when I left to start RD Law Practice.

I have spent my career to date practicing in Shetland, and now have 14 years of local knowledge and experience to draw on.
