Gillian S. Crowl-Parrish is an associate with Swift Currie who practices in the areas of commercial litigation, trucking litigation, catastrophic injury, wrongful death, insurance coverage, premises liability and bad faith litigation. Gillian represents corporations, insurance companies and trucking companies, as well as self-insured and small business clients. She handles matters in Georgia and North Carolina.

Gillian’s practice focuses primarily on complex personal injury, insurance and business disputes. She also has experience with matters related to life, health and disability law, as well as ERISA.

Gillian has in-depth knowledge and experience handling matters involving a number of relevant laws and regulatory agencies, including the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) and the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL).

Gillian pairs her knowledge of the law with a calm and focused demeanor, which allows her to effectively represent her clients while providing the responsive service needed to keep them informed. She knows the high stakes her clients face with every case and she understands no two cases are the same, especially because the injuries, manner of injuries and causes of action are unique.
