Gia M. Conti

Gia M. Conti


Gia Conti’s edge comes from her unparalleled understanding of the recently overhauled Illinois domestic relations laws. Her strong litigation skills give her an advantage over other practitioners, especially those in family law. Her focus began in general civil litigation and has transitioned over the years to the complexities of high net worth asset divisions, business valuations, maintenance, as well as the intricacies of parental decision making (custodial issues) and parenting time disputes. She has successfully tried and settled issues in multi-million dollar estates as well as those holding top management positions. She is comfortable representing those in the “C” suite or their spouses. Gia has a robust record of success in domestic and international child custody issues. Gia has noteworthy expertise in maintenance disputes, valuation work and income imputation.

Although she is a skilled litigator, Gia believes in the value of resolution before trial. She is a certified mediator who wraps her dispute resolution skillfulness into her panoply of solution-oriented techniques.


Gia’s analytical skills and creativity allow her to think outside the box, providing clients with the tools necessary to settle the toughest issues collaboratively—or, alternatively, to strategically litigate the most complex estates. She takes pride in working closely with her clients. She continues to be recognized as an impressive advocate by opposing counsel. Gia’s success stems largely from her steadfast devotion to her clients and their cause.
