Maria Pilkington

Director & Personal Injury Solicitor

Our people

I joined Oliver & Co Solicitors in 2003 and I am a Director and Head of the Personal Injury team.

I am a qualified Solicitor with more than 25 years of experience in dealing with personal injury claims. I handle all types of accident claims including accidents at work, tripping and slipping accidents and claims arising from defective products. I handle claims ranging from modest value claims involving relatively minor injuries through to claims involving very serious injuries resulting in high awards of compensation.

I have helped many clients with serious life altering injuries including amputees and those whose  injuries have left them with limited mobility obtain the best possible outcome to their cases both in terms of the amount of compensation they have been awarded and also their access to  appropriate and enabling rehabilitation services to assist their recovery and to promote their independence where possible.

This is what some of my previous client’s have said about me:-

How lucky were we to have Maria Pilkington assigned to our case, over the past two years she has always been at the end of the phone when we needed advice, her calm professional manner has always put us at ease. Her advice has always been first class and nothing too much trouble to her. The proof of her ability has shown with the outcome of this case, a much better ending than we hoped for. Should we need legal advice in the future then there is only one person we would turn to.

Going that extra mile for the client seems to be the norm for the whole company. We cannot thank you enough.

Mr B

Very helpful, friendly, always called back if not in office when I phoned her, stayed opened late, helped get what I wanted.

Miss L

After an accident at work,  Miss Pilkington and her team who dealt with my claim for compensation acted professionally and were extremely helpful. It helps to have solicitors like this behind you to make the process stress free.

I can’t thank Maria and her team enough for the help I received it’s a shame this is only a 5 star rating as they are worth far more Thank you again


I was a bit apprehensive about putting in a claim, but after a few emails /phone calls, MARIA PILKINGTON, my solicitor, really put my mind at rest, as I had never been through this sort of thing before. Once again thank you for your support and professional advice, you helped me through all of this.

I will provide your company’s information to anyone who needs help, the way you helped me. Once again thank you and your company for everything.

Ms R

Away from work I have two grown up children and two crazy dogs that I enjoy spending time with. I also enjoy a number of hobbies including singing in my local pub choir and also a bit of tap dancing.
