Divorce sucks but Gillian made it suck way less. Gillian was a strong advocate for me as we worked through the year+ of foot dragging by opposing counsel. Gillian got the other side to move more quickly than they would have otherwise. Gillian worked very well with the financial neutral, which allowed the matter to proceed expeditiously. Gillian knows the legal system and skillfully wended our case through. Best, Gillian cares about her clients as people, respects their time, and turns work around quickly and with clear and complete communication. Because she is very good she is very busy, nonetheless her client focus was superb. Gillian's great work has made my life better and I am grateful. Highly recommend Ms. O'Nan.

Well over a year ago i hired Gillian as my divorce lawyer. She was incredibly professional, thorough & effective. It was my first time dealing with a divorce, the whole situation came from no where & it was an untenable and painful experience for me. After some research online I contacted Gillian, I'm incredibly thankful I was able to work with her. She was perfectly clear & assertive with what I should do. Once Gillian proceeded with the case, The process was incredibly swift & painless. Which made the whole situation less stressful for me. She was great!

I was referred to Gillian when my ex unexpectedly asked for a divorce. Gillian was great to work with, and helped me make a solid plan during what was a very difficult and emotional time. Gillian is very direct, honest, thorough, and supportive. She applied her wealth of experience and strategic thinking to help protect my interests.

Gillian handled my divorce case with perfection. She applied just enough pressure to push for resolution without creating unneeded animosity, but I also took comfort knowing she had a more aggressive gear should it be needed. Because of her measured and reasonable approach she secured for me the terms I wanted, in an expeditious manner, and without a huge bill. I would recommend her a thousand times over and am so glad that I chose her to represent me.

I (unfortunately) have had two previous lawyers on 2 previous occasions due to divorce/child custody issues with my ex husband (both of whom did an absolute sub standard job). I was so pleasantly surprised upon meeting with Ms O'nan and quickly came to be extremely impressed with her obvious intelligence, legal knowledge, approachability, and absolute effectiveness as my lawyer. She was always available, responded quickly and efficiently. She commanded respect in any legal setting and is obviously held in the highest regard by her peers. Her support staff is also excellent, as I also had the pleasure of working with a junior attorney Stacey from her practice on 2 occasions. I always felt mine and my son's fate was in the best hands possible with Ms O'Nan and her team. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome (all things considered) and know (thanks to her absolute attention to every detail, and thoroughness) that there are no potential gaps/unaddressed issues in the legal agreement/documents that resulted from my most recent child custody revision process. Bottom line, I would highly recommend Ms O'Nan without absolutely any reservations. I'm so fortunate to have had her as my legal counsel this time around!

I first met Gillian as an associate attorney in my original custody case in 2011 where I was the respondent. Sparing the details, Gillian felt, with me, the crushing blow of my daughter and I being separated by the conniving and malicious tactics of the opposing side. Gillian stayed in contact with both of us as we navigated the waters of keeping our relationship solid through the most trying four and a half years I can recall or ever will I am sure. Gillian is now representing me as the petitioner to regain primary custody of my precious daughter. I am grateful beyond words for her level-headedness, fire when necessary and most of all for having the foresight to be respectful of the sensitivities of all parties involved. I liken her to a military strategist. She stores up her ammunition, saves her energy and intelligence until just the right amount of aggression is needed then applies it only where it will make the most impact. All the while, keeping her client calm and giving them the attention and specific information they need to make lasting choices that are fair and just. I will always consider her my dear friend as will my daughter.

My case was very personal and required dealing with aggressive and unreasonable people. Gillian was in my corner from the first meeting and was professional and compassionate throughout the entire process. She fought 100% for me and my family and I'm completely grateful for her efforts. The case was eventually dismissed - The main reason for that being Gillian's involvement in the case. I cannot recommend her enough!

Gillian was kind and professional through the months leading up to my divorce. I felt that I got the best settlement possible with her guidance and knowledge. I have already recommended her to my friends who have found themselves in this kind of situation.

I couldn't be more pleased with Gillian. She was worth every penny spent. She remembered every detail and used the information, without being reminded, when it was appropriate. When I needed her she would always get back with me. I had a different lawyer through my divorce. The other lawyer would confuse my case with other cases and forget some of the details I provided. The other lawyer sometimes took weeks to return my call. I would highly recommend Gillian to anyone and would use her again in a heartbeat.

I hired Gillian to represent me my divorce and custody of our very young child. Gillian made the most difficult situation in my life as pleasant and easy as possible. She was quick to respond via email, text message or phone call depending on the situation; She was extremely professional and tough, but also compassionate and understanding of the emotional complexity of divorce situations. Most importantly, she was intuitive regarding my post-divorce needs. It has been almost a year since implementing the divorce decree negotiated b/w Gillian/myself and my ex-husband, and I am eternally grateful to Gillian for her expertise and compassion.
