Education

Casey Stillman graduated from the University of Westminster, in London, with a First Class Law Degree, in 2012. While at university, she spent a year studying French Constitutional Law at the Universite de Nice Sophia Antipolis, in France.

Career

Between 2014 and 2018 Casey worked as a legal assistant to Gordan Exall, a senior barrister based in Leeds. Most of her work involved representing claimants in complex, high value personal injury and medical negligence claims. Procedural issues also accounted for a significant proportion of the work she did. Casey therefore gained an insight into the inner workings of the civil courts and an in depth understanding of how to prepare and present a case for trial. She also assisted in running a legal blog, the Civil Litigation Brief, and contributed towards two books about fatal claims in this time.

After this Casey went on to work at a law firm in West Yorkshire. She represented people who had been injured in a range of accidents, but predominately those who had been injured in accidents at work.

Areas of Specialism

Casey joined Pryers in 2019, as a Litigation Executive on the medical negligence department. She currently represents clients who have been injured in both medical and dental negligence claims.

She has a particular interest in delayed diagnosis claims and claims arising from cancer treatment, as well as fatal claims, having contributed towards two books on the subject.

Outside Work

In her spare time, Casey and her husband enjoy travelling, skiing and bringing derelict properties back to life. Casey also recently completed a rock climbing course and plans on going to Thailand next year, to climb.
