What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

Owner/Founder DeeAn Gillespie Strub is a Certified Family Law Specialist. Those who know DeeAn can describe her in three words: caring, courageous, and competent. Growing up as the oldest of nine children, DeeAn quickly learned leadership and resourcefulness. With both parents as educators, she also acquired a love of learning, and from her mathematician father learned to think analytically. Following in her parents' footsteps, her first career step was to become a teacher. It was not long before she determined she could use her teaching skills most effectively in a different arena: the law. She wanted to make a difference for people.

Graduating from Brigham Young University Law School in 1984, DeeAn set up shop in Arizona and founded the firm now known as Gillespie Shields & Durrant, which currently boasts nine top-flight attorneys. With characteristic determination, DeeAn has risen to the top of her profession by qualifying with the State Bar of Arizona as a certified specialist in Family Law. She has taught various Continuing Legal Education seminars to other lawyers on family law topics. Meanwhile this multi-talented attorney is also co-owner of the Marshall Gallery of Art in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Nothing excites DeeAn more than helping people and families, especially those who unfairly find themselves in a challenging legal situation. Known for her compassion and her dogged determination on behalf of her clients, DeeAn is that rare breed of attorney who cares deeply and has the courage and competence to do something about it.
