Gillian is a law & politics graduate who started working in personal injury law in May 2000 dealing with HAVS and COPD claims for Yorkshire mineworkers. She then joined Atherton Godfrey in January 2001, qualified as CILEX in 2005, and has dealt with all types of personal injury claims including road traffic accidents, employer’s liability and occupier’s liability, whilst also developing the RTA Portal team in 2009 and managing various teams for a period of 12 years.

Gillian has returned to acting for claimants who have developed industrial diseases and occupational illnesses. The exposure of working people to asbestos is particularly close to her heart as her father, grandfather and uncle were all laggers in Liverpool in the 1950s to 1970s and is personally aware of the devastating effect of asbestos on people’s lives and their loved ones.

Gillian is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) with accredited status as senior litigator.

Outside of work Gillian’s passions include West Highland White Terriers, interior design, and spending as much time as possible with her large family across the UK.  Gillian is also a keen genealogist and is proud of her Welsh, Scottish and Irish heritage.
