Biography

Jessica Robertshaw is a Calgary-based lawyer whose emphasis is in on civil litigation, insurance defense litigation - specializing in motor vehicle accidents and property issues - and construction litigation primarily around contractual disputes. Her clients include insurance companies, homeowners, condominium corporations and business owners. She has appeared before the Provincial Court of Alberta, the Court of Queen’s Bench and the Alberta Court of Appeal.

Jessica’s clients rely on her to make the issues they face more digestible and understandable. Her strong oral and written advocacy skills offer her clients the confidence they need to ensure their positions are well represented and she approaches each case with a thoroughness that ensures nothing is overlooked. All her clients’ issues - big or small - are carefully researched, and she feels that strong communication with her clients about their case is important and ensures that she is always available for discussion.

Jessica also manages claims related to:
•Personal injury defence
•Property damage - both as plaintiff and defendant

?Value to Clients

While the issues I work on for clients don’t always go to trial, I still need to clearly and realistically explain what the process is and the related risks. It’s my job to ensure they go in with their eyes wide open and that there are no surprises.”

Outside the Office

When Jessica is not at work, you’re likely to find her at the movie theatre. An admitted horror-movie buff, Jessica confesses the lure to this genre is the unrealism that surrounds it. When she's not scaring herself, she loves being outside and reading historical fiction.

Client Stories

One client - a housing corporation - had a tenant who filed a claim against them. The housing corporation wanted to ensure they were fair and reasonable with the tenant but didn’t want to set a precedent for future claims of a similar nature. Despite a great deal of effort, the matter went to trial in Provincial Court and one of the challenges included ensuring that all evidence was properly brought before the Court. While preparing all five defence witnesses for trial was stressful, through meticulous preparation, attention to detail and thorough legal research, we ensured they were in the best possible position going into the trial. Ultimately we were successful in our defense of the claim, both preserving the reputation of the corporation and discouraging future claims of a similar nature.
