David Jeffery

Senior Associate Guernsey

"Friendly and easy to deal with."

David is a senior associate with extensive experience of civil litigation with particular expertise in clinical negligence and personal injury matters, especially obstetrics/gynaecology, orthopaedic injuries, sports injuries, industrial disease, road traffic accidents and accidents at work.

He represents both plaintiffs and defendants and is currently dealing with several high value claims on behalf of the defendant insurer. David heads the team that promotes Collas Crill as the provider of legal services in Guernsey to some of the largest unions and legal expenses insurers in the UK and globally.

In recent years David has developed the firm's contentious probate service and regularly provides advice to clients looking to challenge the validity of a will and/or bring an application under The Inheritance (Guernsey) Law, 2011. David was the lead fee-earner in the first case to come before the Guernsey Courts involving an allegation of undue influence over a lifetime transfer [see Hitchins v Hill -2011].
