At Elovitz/O’Nan, our partners, Rachel Elovitz and Gillian O’Nan, have more than 30 years combined family law experience. Rachel has been practicing since 1996 and Gillian since 2006. Elovitz/O’Nan is a firm devoted exclusively to the practice of domestic relations law, the area of the law that deals with the formation, separation, maintenance, reunification, and dissolution of family relationships. More particularly, their practice involves the preparation of prenuptial agreements and the representation of parties in divorce, paternity, legitimation, custody, grandparent visitation, stepparent adoption, termination of parental rights, and dependency (child abuse and neglect) actions.
Rachel and Gillian understand that domestic relations cases are saturated with anxiety and emotion. Although legal processes, they are often edged in human conflict and feelings of rejection, resentment, and loss. Transitioning through these legal corridors calls for the kind of competent and compassionate counsel that Rachel and Gillian provide.
