Just over a decade ago, I suffered severe injuries due to a motorcycle accident, this accident would change my life forever. Dealing with the recovery, and ongoing surgeries was more than enough to handle, and I don't know where I would be today if not for the expert, caring staff at David J. Gillespie. David Gillespie was my guardian, who I counted on to protect me from the constant bullying and threatening behaviour displayed by the insurance company. Not once did Mr. Gillespie leave me vunerable to any of the insurance companies nonsense, whether it be them, trying to cut off my accident benefits, or ridiculous reports and appointments from the insurance company doctors. That being said, the staff also played a huge role in my successful experience, always checking up on me, making sure my cheques arrived, making sure I had what I needed to get through this tough time. Shirley is a huge asset to the firm, and often I would call her just to have her reassure me that things would be alright, her comforting words, and informative conversations of the process, as well as her vast knowledge and experience is remarkable. When my case was finally settled and the fight was all over, I was sad to realize that I would no longer be dealing with these great people any longer, as they had become like family. I cannot thank David Gillespie and his staff enough for being in my corner and helping me put my life and my future back together.
Sincerely R. B. M.
"The settlement that you and your staff received for me was more than what I was expecting. With your team of support staff everything was done in a timely, well thought out manner, well prepared and laid out clearly and in a very professional manner. We appreciate the time, hard work and dedication that you put forth in dealing with this matter. Thank you very much."

"This is a short letter to relay some information to those who are interested in my experience with David Gillespie and our settlement in excess of $800,000.
"On May 5, 2005, I was in a head-on collision with another car which crossed the center lane, striking me full-force on the driver's side of my car. This collision resulted in a shattered left femur and a broken right leg, along with numerous abrasions and cuts. A few days later we were advised that it would be prudent for us to contact a lawyer to protect our interest. We were at a loss and had no idea who to retain. A co-worker of my wife mentioned she knew a lawyer who specialized in injury cases. This was the luckiest day of our lives. We met and retained David.
"My first meeting with David was in my hospital room where he came to meet myself and my wife, and introduced himself and his assistant, Shirley. This was the beginning of a long friendship. David and Shirley explained what their job would be and their fees at this meeting and at a follow-up meeting. I was in the hospital for over two months, and during that time David and Shirley advocated to my insurance and the other party's insurance company to make sure I had my wage security, home care, and all the specialized equipment I needed. (I was in a wheelchair when I came home.)
"Over the next 3 years, as my case made its way through the system, David (and especially Shirley) were there to guide us and listen to my frustrations. Shirley was a dedicated advocator and was relentless when she felt I was being mistreated by the insurance companies.
"As we came to settlement talks, David sat us down and explained in detail what would happen, how mediation worked, and the pros and cons of numerous situations or outcomes. We were able to settle through mediation and avoid the long, drawn-out process of a trial.
"Both I and my wife consider David and Shirley good friends and feel privileged and extremely lucky to have had them as our legal team.
"David and Shirley made us feel at ease throughout the whole process, and I would highly recommend their services to anyone who asks.
"Grateful for their service,"
