Jillian has committed nearly 20 years to improving and increasing Canadians’ access to safe and effective health care. She has established herself as a trusted and respected advocate for patients and their families in litigation and related proceedings against physicians, nurses, hospitals, pharmacists, dentists and other health sector organizations. Her clients and co-counsel benefit from her responsiveness and perseverance, as well as from her ability to skillfully distill complex medical information in order to best advance her clients’ interests. An instructor at the Lincoln Alexander School of Law, Jillian is a frequent lecturer and speaker on issues relating to patient rights, advocacy and the intersections between law and medicine for Osgoode’s School of Professional Development, the Ontario Bar Association, the Medico-Legal Society of Toronto and other legal and health sector stakeholders. Jillian has developed a nuanced appreciation for the often overlapping legal, social, financial and personal needs of individuals and families affected by medical negligence, and uses her skills in both advocacy and negotiation to achieve the best possible results for her clients, in or out of the courtroom.
