About Us


Our philosophy is to combine expertise and efficiency

With more than twenty years of experience as Messengers-At-Arms and Sheriff Officers, our philosophy is ‘to combine expertise and efficiency in order to deliver excellence’.

Our clients span the legal, commercial, private and public sectors. They know that when they place their instructions with us, the job always gets done.

The team at Nelson James offers exceptional service to the legal, commercial, private and public sectors. With more than 20 years of experience as Messengers-at-Arms and Sheriff’s Officers, our philosophy is “expertise and efficiency”.

Nelson James was established in Livingston in 2003 as a full service legal provider for debt recovery and judgement enforcement. Now with a second office in Aberdeen, we offer a committed and country-wide service.

Our clients are at the centre of everything we do and we pride ourselves on a strong work ethic, clear communications and a methodical approach to our services. Our highly qualified and trusted team has more than 20 years in the business so our expertise is second to none, yet we’re also completely up to date with cutting edge technology and the latest in mobile devices that allow us to work efficiently and resourcefully in order to obtain the best possible outcomes for our clients.
