Laura is by far the easiest lawyer to work with. She took my case knowing we could have a long road ahead of us. (Custody) all ended well and much better than expected. Thank you Laura. She is more than a lawyer, she is a friend.


I had an ex-wife that attempted to come after me for past child support and medical bills, in a nutshell 9 years after he turned of age and going on 4 years since his death, my biggest error in all of this was not having anything in writing from verbal agreements, but fortunately with the stellar representation of Laura, she was able to illustrate to the judge that I more then covered the financial aspects of my sons needs and during cross examination got my ex-wife to admit her greed. I could not have asked for a better attorney if I tried. I found Laura to be honest, driven and passionate for justice.


Laura is the best! She was extremely knowledgeable, easy to communicate with, prompt in returning phone calls and emails. Ex-spouse was requesting unreasonable parenting time and spousal maintenance, Laura quickly shut that down and negotiated hard and fairly until trial which we won in court as well. The judge seemed to know and respect her opinion. Her fee is very reasonable for her worth and I wouldn’t have been able to get through this difficult time without her. Thank you Laura!


I hired Laura near the beginning of 2016 to help with an extremely complicated, long-winded divorce case that was starting anew after moving back to Arizona. She was understanding of my concerns for my children's safety and went far above what I had expected. She and her staff were always available to help when problems arose and I am glad to say that now the divorce is over, my children are safe, I am living in my house, and can live my life again in peace. Divorces are terrible so it is important to hire someone who can handle the ups and downs throughout the case. She was even willing to give advice after the case finished and I had enountered further problems with my ex who I eventually had to get an Order of Protection against. I highly recommend Laura Gillis for anyone who needs a fighter and a good listener on their team!


Flag I talked with several attorneys before Laura and actually hired one. I paid the retainer fee and within six weeks they wanted another payment, My case was on hold waiting for reconciliation court. Yet they billed me for looking up that nothing was being done, they were billing me for emails they sent me telling me nothing has been done and billed me for billing me. What made me leave was when the attorney that promised me what I wanted they could deliver told me to just roll over, husbands never get anything. I fired them and found Laura, she told me what I wanted was not likely but after that she prepared an argument for my case, I end up with my two sons, child and spousal support. But most of all she never made me feel she was a lawyer looking out for their best interest but was a human looking out for my family. I am forever grateful and have referred family and friends to her.


Laura and her staff are simply amazing. She went out of her way to make me feel like my situation was her own. Her staff was responsive and attentive. I can't imagine that a better attorney exists. Thank you!!!


Laura Gillis is a laywer that takes every case seperate and on a proffesional and yet personal level. Her consistancy with keeping me well informed of everything that was being done and was being sent concerning my case kept me at peace and gave me the utmost confidence in her legal knowledge and ability to keep a proffesional composure in a courtroom setting that not only won my case,however gave me the greatest gift of all, MY SON. I would recommend her to anyone that needs a laywer that doesn't come to work to check on her financial standings with her clients, however she comes to work to check on her work which is the core of her profession. Her clients take presidence over anything. I could never repay her fo her services and would use her over and over when needed

She was so helpful...every little concern or question, she would always take the time to answer. she really made my case important and took the time to go out of her way to make me feel comfortable with the process and to make sure that i was in the loop and understood everything.

I have several years of experience in family law and divorce. Divorce is a life changing event, make sure you know if you need an Arizona divorce attorney prior to filing your divorce paperwork.

Spousal Maintenance

In Arizona, the determination to award spousal maintenance is based largely on the specific facts and evidence presented to the court in each divorce case. Therefore, when spousal maintenance is an issue, it is important for a party to be represented by experienced and knowledgeable legal counsel.


Parents who are denied custody of their children are often entitled to generous visitation rights, unless visitation with the non-custodial parent does not serve the child’s best interests. The child’s welfare is the court’s primary concern with custody and visitation matters.
