Dorothy Gill was a renowned attorney who practiced a wide range of law including public advocacy, divorce, criminal and immigration law. She was also valued as an Officer of the Court who always looked out for the underserved. She was known for her deep compassion, strong work ethic and fierce protectiveness of those who were vulnerable. She was never afraid to pursue her dreams including receiving a Masters in psychology, starting a natural grocery store, and finally at the age of 50 a law degree. It was there that she found her niche. As an attorney she was a tireless advocate for those who needed her. She instilled in her children that anything is possible if you work hard enough for it. She loved her children and her dog, Teddy (not always in that order!) as well as a good fire in her fireplace!! She will be sorely missed and will live on in the hearts of her children and all that loved her.
