What Clients Say

She was able to handle the complexity and the difficulty of my situation, while ALWAYS being compassionate. She was never scared away by the challenges of my case (which abounded)…I truly appreciated the combination of her powerful (and, when needed, intimidating) presence in court and her truly gentle nature…If you are mired in a contentious divorce, you simply can do no better than Attorney Gillespie.
