A divorce like the death of a loved one is one of the most traumatic events in a person's lifetime. Shoddy or substandard service is not acceptable.

The Law Firm of Gabrielle S. Davis, P.C. puts a great deal of emphasis on communication. "We like to start the initial consultation by telling clients what they can and can't get in the long run from proceeding whether it is a divorce, a change in a existing decree or any other controversy involving family law." If the client has impractical or unrealistic expectations, we can work that out in the open." Since Gabrielle Davis is the head of her own firm, she has the flexibility to design a trial strategy with attention to organization and detail.
Attorney Gabrielle Davis has a rich and diverse background. She obtained a Bachelor of Arts in French Literature at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois before earning her Juris Doctorate from Chicago-Kent College of Law. She chose to practice in the area of matrimonial law for two reasons. "There's something tangible and long-term at stake in matrimonial and family law, in that you are dealing with litigation that will affect people's lives directly and secondly, family law is an excellent field for woman. The focus is generally on reconciliation and the litigation aspect tends to be family and relationship centered - areas in which woman have traditionally excelled."
Gabrielle Davis has been a lawyer for almost two decades. She embodies the best qualities of a true advocate: an attorney who is committed to your case, yet detached enough to look at it objectively.
"As a single parent, I understand how intense emotions can get especially when a person is dealing with issues like custody and visitation rights," she adds. Gabrielle Davis is both aggressive and compassionate. She has a strong background in litigation having done extensive trial work. Still she says that she relies on aggressive litigation only as a last resort, once all avenues of amicable mediation have failed. Her first instinct is to attempt to achieve fast, focused and fair settlement but if that doesn't work, she is more than willing to enter aggressive litigation. Divorce or any matter involving children can be a difficult process but Gabrielle Davis can ease the process.
