Gemma B. Ladden is a founding partner of Ladden & Allen, Chartered, a family law firm offering experienced, professional, aggressive, and discrete representation in the areas of marriage, legal separation, divorce, paternity, mediation, child custody and domestic violence.

Established by Gemma B. Allen and Ronald S. Ladden (now of counsel), the firm has represented thousands of men and women on matters spanning the entire gamut of family law issues.

Today, Gemma with her law partner Todd Glassman and their team provide equal attention to every case, whether it is a simple uncontested divorce or a high-stakes complex case involving multi-millions of dollars. Through their own experience, as well as tapping the expertise of forensic experts in the areas of taxes, accounting, business valuation and estate planning, they effectively assist clients in navigating complex issues involved in divorce, including the division of matrimonial property, whether by negotiation or on trial.

The firm is known for its history of hosting cutting-edge family law Think Tanks. Gemma is a contributor to the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, Today’s Chicago Woman, American Bar Association Magazine, ICCLE and several blogs, and a co-author of a book The New Love Deal published in 2014. A frequent public speaker, she is quoted regularly in the media.
