Gillian was born in Scotland but grew up in Burlington, Ontario. After high school, she attended the University of Ottawa for her undergraduate degree where her studies focused on history and political science. Gillian has adopted Ottawa as her new home and loves the city for its scenic views and charming small-town feel.
Gillian started as a law clerk at Auger Hollingsworth in 2013 and quickly developed a passion for personal injury law. It is the satisfaction of helping people and the unique challenges that each case brings that she loves most about this area of law.
Gillian returned to school to obtain her law degree at the University of Glasgow in 2018. While pursuing her law degree, Gillian volunteered at the Citizen’s Advice Bureau where she provided assistance to low-income residents for a variety of different matters, including disability benefit entitlement, debtor-creditor, landlord-tenant disputes and employment disputes.
After returning to Canada in 2020, Gillian earned her certification from the National Committee of Accreditation. She completed her articling with Auger Hollingsworth and was called to the Bar of Ontario in 2022.
When Gillian is not working, she can typically be found walking with her husband and three dogs on one of Ottawa’s many nature trails. She also enjoys live music and attends Ottawa’s Bluesfest each year. Gillian is looking forward to travelling again once the world has re-opened. She has Thailand and Egypt on her bucket list of places to visit.

During your initial strategy session, we will assist you in creating a strategy in how to best pursue your claim, whether it be the result of a car accident claim, 18 wheeler injury, or, other kind of personal injury claim.
There are 5 points to your free claim strategy session:
First, we will listen to your story. You will have a chance to tell everything to someone who wants to hear what happened to you.
Based on the information you provide, we will give you our best advice on both what claims you have and the next steps you should consider to go forward with your claim.
If you claim is something that we think we can help you with, we will explain the services that we can provide for you, and what the next steps are that we should take. We will start working immediately.
If your matter is something that we do not think we can help you with, then we will attempt to put you in contact with another lawyer that might be able to help you.
Either way, what should happen is we will put to rest some of the unknowns that you may be experiencing. We will start to shed light on what you can expect and how to best pursue the benefits you deserve.
