About Jillian Gross:

Manhattan based Matrimonial attorney with focus on pre- and post-nuptial agreements, custody and access, divorce negotiation and litigation, equitable distribution, and spousal and child support issues.

Jillian E. Gross, a founder and partner of the firm, has been practicing matrimonial law exclusively since October 2006.

Jillian has considerable experience advising clients in all aspects of matrimonial and family law, including equitable distribution of assets, spousal and child support issues, custody and access, and pre- and post-nuptial agreements. Jillian represents clients with a broad range of backgrounds and varying net worths. She understands that there is no one-size-fits-all approach for the many issues that bring people to her office.

Jillian appreciates that being a matrimonial lawyer is about much more than practicing law. Jillian makes a point to understand all aspects of her clients’ lives—from business and financial issues to parenting and family-related matters—in order to tailor her approach to achieve the best result in each case. That result might be achieved through litigation or settlement, or a combination of the two. For Jillian, no two clients are alike; nor is her approach for them. Jillian relates to her clients on a personal and professional level. She is attentive, responsive, and treats each client with respect and care. Jillian’s clients often reach out to her years after the conclusion of the case to thank her for supporting them through some of their most difficult times, and getting them to a new phase in their lives.

Jillian has been named a “Rising Star” in family law by New York Super Lawyers, and also has been recognized by Top Attorneys, Attorneys of Distinction, Top Lawyers and Lawyer of the Year. Most recently, Jillian was ranked by Chambers and Partners.

Jillian has lectured at various professional seminars, including to the New York State Bar Association, on the topic of Equitable Distribution and Maintenance. Jillian is in her second term as Treasurer of the Family Law Section of the New York City Bar Association.

Jillian received her B.A. from Brandeis University, where she graduated cum laude. In 2003, she graduated from Brooklyn Law School, where she received the prestigious Academic Achievement Scholar award.
