Our Legal Team

Jillian Gamez


A lifelong Edmontonian, I joined Weir Bowen in 2012. In addition to a busy litigation practice including estate litigation, a wide array of personal injury litigation, and general civil litigation, I also assist clients in preparing wills and in real estate transactions. I have appeared before the Provincial Court of Alberta and Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench.

I previously worked at the Alberta Law Reform Institute, Alberta Justice, and the Office of the Public Trustee as a law student. I am a former editor of the Review of Constitutional Studies and the Alberta Law Review.

Like many Edmontonians, I believe in the importance of giving back to the community. I have been a volunteer with the Canadian Bar Association since 2011 and am the current co-Chair of the northern Alberta Elder Law subsection. I am also the current President and Chair of the Board of Directors of the Cultural Connections Institute- The Learning Exchange. I am an avid supporter of the Edmonton theatre scene and have appeared on stage at the Edmonton Fringe Festival, and as part of the Players de Novo.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading and escaping to the mountains for skiing or hiking.
