As a trial lawyer at Hergott Law, Jill represents injured plaintiffs in a wide array of personal injury and ICBC claims, including complex injuries, brain injuries, and wrongful death. She also represents individuals in contentious estate disputes regarding matters of will variation, interpretation, executor compensation, asset transfers, and challenges to gifts. She assists with the firm’s estate planning practice – leveraging her estate litigation experience in the planning stages to avoid subjecting our client’s estates (and loved ones) to future litigation.
Jill has extensive experience with every stage of litigation. She is a tenacious advocate with a proven track record of success in negotiations and mediations. Where fair settlement cannot be achieved, she runs trials in the Supreme Court of British Columbia. Jill is a trusted, compassionate advisor and advocate for clients as they face difficult and often emotional circumstances.
Jill serves as Chair for the Okanagan Young Lawyers Section of the Canadian Bar Association. She is also a member of the Trial Lawyers Association of BC and the Kelowna Bar Association. In these roles she organizes collegial and charity events, fostering her strong connection to the community.
Outside the office, Jill loves to explore other countries and cultures – most recently the stunning landscape of Iceland. At home in the Okanagan she can be found golfing, hiking, skiing, enjoying the local cuisine, and sipping a BC wine or beer.
