Dr Christopher Atkins

Senior Associate

MBBS, Dip RACOG, MHA, LLB (Hons), FACLM

I am often asked to analyse complex medical/legal situations and am conscious of the need to provide advice in a caring and understandable way.

Dr Christopher Atkins has practised in the firm’s injury compensation division since 1998. He was appointed a Senior Associate of the firm in 2000 and is regarded as an expert in all areas of health and medical law.

Chris is one of a small number of lawyers in Victoria who is also a qualified, practising medical practitioner. As such, he is better able to understand and provide advice, particularly in medical negligence claims.

Chris’ expert knowledge of both legal and medical matters makes him invaluable to the firm’s injury compensation division.

In addition to working at Galbally & O’Bryan, Chris continues to consult as a GP in Woodend, and also lectures in medical law at Monash University.
