About Gladys

Learn Gladys’s areas of practice.

Attorney Gladys Proa Santana is a dedicated and experienced advocate for clients whose lives have been tragically altered by defective medical devices and pharmaceutical drugs, workplace injuries and automobile accidents. With a focus on work in the area of complex mass tort litigation, Gladys has represented thousands of clients in her relentless fight to hold corporations accountable for reprehensible conduct that too often results in irreparable harm to people across the country. 

The driving force behind Gladys’ zealous advocacy for her clients is in the deep-rooted understanding that each case that comes to her, represents a person or family who has been hurt or has suffered the unimaginable loss of a loved one at the hands of, more often than not, a corporation who chose to value profit over human life. Advocating with purpose and seeking justice on behalf her clients has been her mission ever since joining the legal profession and continues to propel her forward.

Outside of the office, Gladys volunteers her time as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for Children as a CASA/GAL for CASA Kane County, a nonprofit volunteer organization that advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children within the Juvenile Court system.

Gladys is fluent in Spanish.
