PI TEAM SPOTLIGHT: Jackie Miller | Davis Blank Furniss Solicitors

What does your role at Davis Blank Furniss involve?
Ensuring clients are adequately compensated for injuries received through no fault of their own.

What is the best thing about your job?
Knowing I am helping people, building up their trust in me and not letting my clients or my employers down.

What is the best case that you have been involved in?
It is impossible to pinpoint one case in particular because all my cases are as good – and important – as the next.  It is particularly satisfying when we win a defended case at the eleventh hour after knowing all along, sometimes for a few years, that the defendants are wrong.

Name the person who has had the biggest influence on your career.
Jon Litherland who gave me the opportunity to rise up the employment ladder, taught me what he knew and set me on my way.

If you were not a senior litigation assistant, what would you be doing/where would you be?
I actually planned be working in the fashion industry.  I stayed on at school to obtain a fashion and design qualification with the dream of taking it further and becoming a fashion designer.  Somehow I slipped into office work, but I must enjoy the office environment because 31 years later I am still here and my planned career in fashion became a pipedream!

You work at our Glossop office.  What’s the best thing about doing business in Glossop?
Because it is a small town, you become well known and it is pleasing when past clients recommend you on to new clients and they just pop into the office due to a recommendation.

If someone was visiting Glossop, what would be your top tip for them to do?
Make sure you go on a walk or drive on the outskirts of Glossop.  We have some lovely walks.  Looking down on Glossop from the hills is great and the scenery is spectacular.

Excellent experience start to finish – always very responsive to any queries and the turnaround on the property I was buying was very quick, even in the busy time leading up to stamp duty deadline. Jenny was always very helpful and went above and beyond to close on a short timescale.

Ben Armitage

“Very approachable, practical solutions to problems, but most of all very responsive which I personally think is very important because if you need help, you need it quickly, or at least to know someone is looking at it for you”.

Joanne Rowe, Finance Director, Greater Manchester Chamber

“Always able to contact, very approachable, friendly and professional”

Nives Feely, JAM Recruitment

“I believe I have been able to establish a professional working relationship with everyone I have come into contact. Importantly, I sense the relationships which have been established give me the confidence that I can make contact with Davis Blank Furniss at any time and on any matter. I would also like to express my thanks to the very impressive “gatekeepers” who work in reception, not only for making me very welcome, but also for their professionalism”

Bill Pryke, CEO, Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors

“Thank you for your efficient and friendly help throughout this process. We have had it easy but your approach has been part of that”.

Robert Amsbury (Conveyancing Client)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for the ongoing support and assistance the firm has offered to our parents over the years. I hope also that we may be able to call on you if necessary in the future.”

Valerie Fisher (Probate Client)

“Jo always provides great service, understands our needs and delivers on her promises. Our needs are relatively simple but the complexity arises out of the volume of work and short time frames, Jo always delivers.”

Peter Fernandez, Corporate Director at Royal Bank of Scotland

“A big thank you to all who dealt with my wife’s claim… We would not hesitate to recommend Davis Blank Furniss to anyone that may be in a situation like we have been…”

Anon (Personal Injury client)

“Before putting my case in Kirsty (Morbey)’s capable hands I’ve met a couple of other solicitors. None of them listen to me as intently as Kirsty and showed me as much empathy and understanding as she did. Simultaneously she was able to look at my case from legal perspective, explain all the options and follow each of our meetings with written summary of the discussed matters (in timely manner). Her advice was invaluable and led me to successfully ending the case matter (hopeful for good). I’m forever grateful for he work and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for reliable, knowledgeable and committed solicitor”.
