Rebbecca Phillips is an associate in Ross & McBride’s Personal Injury Law Group, where she represents families and individuals whose lives have been impacted by an injury.
She has acted on behalf of clients in a wide range of matters, including medical malpractice, police brutality, nursing home abuse, product liability, slip-and-fall incidents, and assaults.
When Rebbecca was a student at Queen’s University, a lecture from a visiting lawyer inspired her to pursue a career in law. After obtaining a law degree from the University of Kent in England, Rebbecca worked as a Court Monitor, where she saw first-hand what an injury victim’s experience is like, and how plaintiff civil litigation can help the vulnerable.
Rebbecca’s clients appreciate her ability to thoroughly explain the legal process and her dedication to easing their minds. She is known for being caring and approachable, and always takes the time to check in with her clients and answer questions along the way. With a background in the arts, Rebbecca applies her creative instincts to communicating with her clients in a way that resonates with them.
Outside of her practice, Rebbecca is the Vice Chair of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association’s Women’s Caucus, and a member of the Hamilton Law Association’s Continuing Professional Development Committee. She also serves on the Boards of both the Hamilton Medical Legal Society, and the Hamilton Integrated Research & Ethics Board.
In her personal time, Rebbecca enjoys using her artistic side by creating textile art and oil painting.
