Kirkcudbright solicitors and estate agents, Cavers & Company, are keeping it in the family with the recent arrival of a new staff member.
Since setting up the business in 2004, solicitor Neil Cavers has been a sole practitioner.
But with business booming, son Paul has relocated to the area and taken up a post in the St Mary Street office in the town.
Paul grew up Kirkcudbright where he attended Kirkcudbright Academy before leaving to go to Edinburgh University. Since graduating Paul has worked as a solicitor in Edinburgh, but is now thrilled to have settled back in his hometown and to be working alongside his father.
