- Senior Associate
Gia Conti is a Senior Associate at Lake Toback DiDomenico where she practices civil litigation with a focus in family law. She routinely handles issues related to complex financial asset division, business valuation, maintenance, allocation of significant parental decision making and parenting time disputes.
Given the State of Illinois’ complete overhaul of domestic relations law in recent years, Ms. Conti’s edge, in part, comes from her unparalleled understanding of the new law giving her a strong advantage over most attorneys who are less versed in the new laws.
A skilled litigator and certified mediator, she has a robust record with domestic and international child custody issues. Ms. Conti has successfully tried and settled cases involving complex financial issues including the valuation and division of multi-million dollar estates; she has noteworthy expertise in maintenance disputes, valuation work and income imputation.
Ms. Conti’s analytical skills and creativity allow her to think outside of the box, providing clients with the tools necessary to settle the toughest issues collaboratively or alternatively, to strategically litigate the most complex estates.
Ms. Conti takes pride in working closely with her clients and continues to be recognized as an impressive advocate by opposing counsel. Her accomplishments are evidenced by her formidable client originations-- the majority of which have come from her former clients and former opposing counsels.
Ms. Conti was named 2018 Top Woman Lawyers in Chicago and recognized as a 2019 Rising Star by Super Lawyers.
