As a Judicial Law Clerk, Attorney Gnau assisted in the drafting of judgments, findings, rationale, and orders in divorce, modification, and contempt matters. This prestigious opportunity enabled Attorney Gnau to develop skills transferable to her law practice today.

Through her clerkship, Attorney Gnau refined her legal research and writing skills, as well as her analytical abilities. In her present-day practice, she has been able to draw upon that experience when drafting pleadings, discovery requests and responses, settlement proposals, separation agreements, and the like. Attorney Gnau’s judicial clerkship experience also exposed her to a variety of family law issues and gave her a deep understanding of probate court procedures and the family law litigation process.

As a practicing family law and divorce lawyer, Attorney Gnau has amassed considerable experience strategizing with clients and discussing the status and trajectory of their cases.

I truly could not be more grateful. Amanda is an absolute gem and a true asset.”
