Gloria Block, a founding partner of Hoffenberg and Block LLC, began her legal career under the tutelage of her father, Arnold Block, a distinguished member of the Illinois Bar.
She quickly established her trial skills and soon learned that her love for law related to families. She then gravitated to family law. Although her expertise includes all areas of family law, she has a unique passion for matters concerning children. As a result, she has dedicated a substantial part of her professional practice to cases relating to child custody and visitation.
Over the years, because of her established skills in dealing with children, she has come to be known as a vigorous advocate for children by Judges, lawyers, and mental health professionals who are intimately involved in legal proceedings involving custody and visitation cases. Because of her reputation and expertise, she is often appointed by Judges, and agreed upon by attorneys, to participate in the most difficult custody and visitation cases. Her stated goal is always to protect the best interests of children.
Prior to establishing Hoffenberg & Block, Ms. Block was a principal in the law firm of Block and Block for over 30 years.
